The Rolls-Royce Ghost's only real natural competitor is the Bentley Flying Spur, that brand being a historical partner of Rolls-Royce's (though no longer) and fitting largely into the same space.
The Ghost aims slightly higher up-market, however.
On the other hand, the Flying Spur's recent redesign, unlike the Ghost's, was a complete and utter transformation.
Its sleek new exterior and modern interior may appeal to buyers who find the Ghost a touch staid.
Other alternatives for those seeking powerful, luxurious sedans with large executive seating include the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Porsche Panamera.
Both hit different marks than the Ghost on design, with the Panamera's somewhat awkward profile polarizing shoppers, and the S-Class's more brand-themed shape making it perhaps seem more common than its price tag would indicate.
Both offer variants with extended wheelbases, extremely comfortable seating, advanced technology packages, and more.
The Porsche tends toward the higher-performance end of the spectrum, while the Mercedes is more about refinement.
