7) Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II
Hand-built by more than 60 seasoned experts, the Ghost is one of the most advanced luxury cars available on the market. Five coats of paint on the bodyshell and custom hand-stitched leatherwork interiors are just two of the many details painstakingly added by skilled specialists to the Ghost at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, UK.
Each of the car’s wood veneers is individually shaped, sanded, lacquered and polished. The completed car is hand-polishing to a flawless mirror finish. The Ghost is instantly recognizable by its unique shape and front grille. The Series II gets modern contours, overriding tradition and creating an informal presence.
Powerful yet restrained the Ghost packs a twin turbo 6.6 litre V12 engine with an eight speed gearbox. Sat-nav GPS is standard. Redesigned front and rear struts help manage all 2.5 tons of the car’s weight effortlessly. Despite its state-of-the-art technology and world-class engineering the Ghost remains remarkably simple in its appeal. Nearly every feature of the car is customizable according to buyers’ preferences.
