What is wrong with the Rolls-Royce Ghost? Some, perhaps most people, say 'nothing' - but others crave a more striking finish. Brace yourself then, because this magnificent saloon is now available with two-tone paint. And what a remarkable sight. The example that was on-show in Geneva has stunning black wings, doors, and bumpers – whereas the roof and boot are striking silver. Furthermore, the interior reflects the Ghost's two-tone theme. Highlights include the black ash veneer with steel pinstripes and the magnificent seashell headlining. This two-tone beauty has lambswool floor mats too. At this point the Rolls-Royce Ghost gives me a problem. What else can I write about this magnificent machine that you cannot guess? Yes, it handles beautifully – but you know that because it is a Rolls-Royce. Yes, the ride is supreme – but you know that too.

And yes, it feels monstrously large, tremendously cosseting, and the cabin is beautifully finished. I can, however, reveal a few tantalising titbits. Rolls-Royce traditionally claim that their power outputs are 'adequate' - but fail to be precise. However, we know that this 6.6- litre V12 powered beauty produces 563bhp and wafts to 62mph in 4.9 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155mph. That is certainly 'adequate', as it should be for an alarming £200,000.
