Here are the pics of the Phantom & Ghost. In conclusion, as most ppl probably know, the Ghost is a compact RR more suited for European roads, as it is sportier than the much larger Phantom. And as much as RR would disagree, it is more rewarding to be driven around in a Phantom, than drive it yourself. Especially if it comes with individual seats at the rear. Both very well equipped, with brilliant build quality and finishing (as one would expect).

My apologies for not having interior pics of the Ghost. Between anchoring and yelling at ppl who got into the way of the camera, while filming, it was quite a hectic day.

those are not chrome strips,they are the same color of the car only,i guess the reflection makes it look chrome.

The Ghost looks better than the Phantom for sure. Add to this a more powerful engine, better acceleration and a newer model of the two, these are reasons enough for the richie rich's to consider it over the Phantom. Love the exhausts on the Ghost.

Wow cool stuff.

When did this fellow get rid of that hard top

Wow... i am loving this car all over again.

Noticed a very funny thing in this car, the rear tail lights glow up when you put the indicators ON (Red Indicators flashing- never seen)

One of the Best maintained Muscle car, i've ever been in so far.

in the us they dont have a rule which says the indicators need to be yellow colour. maybe they have it now?

i saw the new mustang a month ago and it has 3 vertical bars on each side as tail lights. well to indicate they come on one by one from inside bar to outside. its really quite funny.

Nice pictures, JayR! The Rolls Royce siblings look brilliant together! Given the option though, I'd put my money on the Ghost over the Phantom!

Manish, the 'Vette looks fantastic! Great photography! Love it's sharp, retro lines and muscular proportions! Look at those steamroller-wide tyres!

However, is it just me or does the front bumper and front-right fender look sort of undone?

Last night was in Koramangala and saw the Hummer H2 with those cheap looking wheels.

Why does he park that elephant blocking half of the road? Creates quite a traffic mess.

The 'busa belonged to a friend of the Ghost owner, who came along to watch.

Awesome pics of the 'vette! I tried taking a pic of this limited edition Scorpio, but my cam kept moving !

I last heard , he let it go for a better car. That was few months ago.

Nevertheless, that Skyline has great wheels, and clean. As always with his cars.
The skyline belongs to a friend of mine. last i spoke to him, he was thinking of giving it off. dont know if he is a member here.
