Sportiness is no Ghostly Apparition with the Wraith
Rolls-Royce is one of the most famous automakers in the world. This storied British brand is best known for building obscenely lavish cars, motoring vehicles that scream “expensive,” but in a well-mannered, genteel way.
Models like the Ghost sedan and Phantom flagship practically define the luxury segment. They’re decked out with features and materials not found in lesser vehicles, even from premium brands. But traditionally Rollers are all about comfort; “waftability” is something engineered right into these models from day one. They’re designed to transport passengers in total comfort and serenity.
In the past if you wanted a sporty luxury car you’d have to shop somewhere else. The folks at Mercedes-Benz would happily sell you an AMG-amplified model, or BMW would gladly entice you with their M cars. But sporty and Rolls-Royce were mutually exclusive, until now.
Value-conscious customers that don’t want the burden of a hefty new-car payment are smart to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle. Automakers from Audi to Kia offer such programs.
