3) The Ghost is much more advanced than the Phantom in terms of Gadgets and technologies, much like the E66 7 series and the F02 7 Series.The BMW 7 Series F02 and the Ghost are technically identical.

4) The engine is a 6.6L V12 twin turbo plant borrowed and tweaked from the 6.0L BMW V12, the power is phenomenal!

5) 4 more Ghosts arriving in the coming week, 2 will be for Mumbai!
Thanks for clarifying Maverick. I always thought this was the Demo car that came down.

I thought VJ's car in Delhi was the first one delivered to Delhi and was much before Wednesday. He buys his cars through Navnit i believe.

Yes those features are there but i think you can even have them on the Phantom or are they exclusive only to the Ghost. If they are exclusive to the Ghost then i stand corrected. The Ghost is more advanced gadgetry wise then the Phantom.

Saw the Ghost last evening on Carter road, being followed by a police gypsy. No prizes for guess who owns it
Was black in color and look superb ! It might not have the size of the Phantom but certainly does have the presence.

I saw a black ghost on carter with chrome wheels and a gypsy following it not two tone though cant say if black or purple as it was dark. Looked ok, I preferred the delhi one with maroon/red and silver two tone she looked nice but I think a Phantom is the real macoy and not this 7 series derivative.

Yep saw this same one that your talking about parked outside aurus. So now that makes his collection of 3 RR's in one garage. WOW!
