I have seen a stranded Mercedes with a temp plate being taken to the workshop in a recovery vehicle that looked exactly like this one. It's not unusual for imports to run on temp plates for months while they wait for a fancy number.

I will still like to believe that this one's going for delivery.

This car would look better if it was in full RED/Meroon color

Spotted the Ghost with the number one number plate at BMW Navnit Service Centre today. Doesn't really appeal to me as much as the Phantom.

Aha, so there are others also who like the Phantom more than the Ghost! I'd also choose a Phantom over a Ghost anyday. Ghost doesn't have that royal look and presence of the mighty Phantom.

Spotted the Green Ghost mentioned earlier in the thread and a Silver/Pearl White Ghost at a traffic signal in Colaba. It was my First Day in Mumbai and it has been a treat watching these beauties. The Rolls Emblem that remain stationary on the Wheels looks flashy!!
The car seems quite short, almost disproportionate, though!

Externally yes absulutely gorgeous. Interiors they messed up only in one place, the door puller on the door panels. The interiors are blue and the door panels are also blue with the door pullers in white. Looks sad in my opinioun and would have prefered it in Blue. Other than this the car look gorgeous and the dealership just copied the Combination of my BMW . This is the Demo car for now owned by the Dealership.

For the Members who Prefer the Phantom to the Ghost, let me remind you both cars are built with different end use in mind. The Phantom is for the Chauffered and the Ghost who like to drive themselves. The features are also built in the same order. The unfortunate part is the Ghost is Chauffer driven in India so the charm is lost. I prefer the Ghost to the Phantom anyday. The reason being the Phantom always looked like a Matchbox to me, really bulky and does not show any resemblance to the older generation (Shadow and Spur), the Ghost does have a resemblance and is sportier looking and not bulky atall.


VR/46_CHET not seen that car at all. There was a sky blue with Silver bonnet that was there and in Breach candy a Dark blue with silver. Did you manage any pictures of this car? I would be on the lookout for it.

For me the ghost totally works. The Phantom is a car to be chauffeured in and the Ghost is a car to be driven. Its got a superb engine and enough power and torque to move another planet.
I agree that it hasn't got the mighty presence of the Phantom which I think is mainly because of the size of the beast, the Ghost definitely looks more pretty to me.
Awesome machine.
