Blogging following the test, Hallett wrote: “What staggered me was just how different the Ghost feels to the Phantom. And those differences are apparent from the second you slide into the driver’s seat.
“You sit far lower in the Ghost, and far snugger too. Yes, you’re still sitting higher than in most saloons, but it feels far more conventional than the Phantom’s imperious driving position – which still feels totally unique. As does its control layout. The Ghost’s cabin looks and feels exceptional but there are still myriad more buttons on display than in the bigger car.

“Away from the kerb there are huge differences too. The lighter, more powerful Ghost has an accelerative urge that the Phantom can’t even hope to match. It also feels a good deal more nimble on tight, twisty roads.”
“On plenty of road surfaces it rides just as well too. But the Phantom is simply about being the best riding car on the planet, and on really broken surfaces and over expansion joints it can still show the Ghost a thing or two about bump absorbtion and noise suppression.”
