Consider the Bentley Flying Spur to be the Ghost's most natural rival; a generation ago, the two would have shared virtually everything, but today they are owned by German competitors.
The Ghost is a direct response to Bentley's more driver-focused design.
Mercedes-Benz has long played in this high-end, but not half million dollar range, and its latest S-Class remains a technological tour de force; the Maybach configuration squares off nicely against the Ghost.
For those who truly love to drive, Porsche's latest Panamera is the default choice in this segment, but if you're seeking a little more silence and softness, the BMW 7-Series strikes a terrific balance and certainly flies under the radar.
