When it comes to ultra-luxurious sedans, the 2017 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II delivers all you'd expect from the marque, as well as the exorbitant price. At more than $300,000 when new, it very well better. Of course, the final price will likely end up much higher thanks to a long list of customization options to add to the generous standard features.
The Ghost Series II is available in the base standard-wheelbase (SWB) model, as well as the extended-wheelbase (EWB) version, which adds almost 7 inches between the front and rear wheels for greater space in the rear.
Besides the typical standard features found on most cars, the Ghost adds adaptive LED headlights, an air suspension, a surround-view parking camera, intelligent cruise control and power-closing rear doors, front seats with massage functions, a pair of umbrellas conveniently stored in the front doors, a power trunklid and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The EWB Ghost also receives ventilated rear seats with massage functions, a pair of 9.2-inch rear-seat entertainment screens, a rear cooler box and rear picnic tables.
For the added legroom and features, we gravitate toward the EWB model. We also recommend adding the optional Feature Selection package that dresses up the exterior and interior a bit and adds power-adjustable rear seats, lambswool floormats, an 18-speaker premium audio system, night vision and adaptive cruise control with full-stop capability.
There are also no shortage of paint choices, wheel designs and interior customization palettes to allow shoppers to specify the Ghost to their particular tastes. For even grander budgets, clients can commission a bespoke model with colors and options that aren't offered in the extensive catalog.
Compared to other premium luxury sedans, the 2017 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II is priced on the higher end, but probably not so much that it would dissuade the affluent clientele. To put it in perspective, it's about $200,000 less than Rolls-Royce's ultimate in luxury, the Phantom Sedan. When you're ready to make a statement of this magnitude, Edmunds' helpful shopping tools will help you pick out the perfect vehicle to announce your arrival.
