Ghost car

42 Comments

A model stands beside the new Rolls Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase during its launch in Tokyo on Friday. Rolls Royce Regional General Manager for Asia Pacific Paul Harris said Japan is the second biggest customer in Asia (after China) for the company. He said the new Ghost was a highly personalized, hand-built car that offers superior comfort and versatility. It is priced at 32 million yen.

I like the shape, size, and color. The car? Meh.

Sorry but "Ghost" is not the name that comes to mind when I think RR xD. Mirage or Illusion would be a more refined name. xD

Looks like a Chrysler 300.

I don't like the small headlights. If I am gonna get a big classy car, I want some big headlights to flash at people and say "Get off my road!"

Well, we know it's not green?

I'd prefer a Bentley Mulsanne.

Nothing special, though if others like it good for them. Nice legs on the model.

Thought the Germans bought it? I would like to have a Toyota Century, royal edition :)

Looks like a pair of silver chopsticks. To each their own I guess..

Nice car, but couldn't they get a model who hadn't just come from chemotherapy....

That is an ugly car.

i don't care much about the car, toy for the super-rich. but i love that great sexy looking chick (toy for me)

While Rolls are still made at Goodwood, and Bentley are still made at Crewe, the formerly majestic British car industry has gone the way of the empire. Rolls is now entirely owned by BMW and Bentley by VW. Even TVR is owned by a Russian these days and Aston Martin by Kuwaitis. Of all the historic and mighty English cars still being made, only the eccentric Morgan and my favorite - Bristol - remain as true hand-made blue-blood heralds of this once proud tradition.

The Bristol, that's a "real car!"

Sorry to say I don't find either model attractive.

BMW 7 series in drag (and on steroids)!

If you have the money it is better than a Lambo or Ferrari for Tokyo - at least you will be in comfort and relative silence whilst sitting at the red lights and in the traffic jams!

Ha ha, Cleo, so you think someone must be pretty dumb to pay 32,000,000 yen for it? Me too!

The car is ugly and the model looks scary!

Wait a minute - only 32,000,000 yen? Maybe Yoshio Hachiro can buy the Ghost and drive it around what he called the "ghost town" near Fukushima Daiichi.

Ahh.. it's only a little pocket change for me :) see me in this tomorrow with my personal chauffeur. Thou shalt not envy but be rather impressed.

It is an awful exuberance, nothing refined or stylish about the lines at all. No, RR. No.

@TakahiroDomingo: ''Toy' for you'? Seriously, can a more disturbing interpretation of how one values another HUMAN be found on JT?

I like the girl. Screw the car. 32 million for a heap of metal? Ridiculous.

I don´t get that idea. "Comfort" in those low-set racing contraptions? How? I would have thought "comfort" would be the only argument to buy a rolls, if you really want to spend that money on a contraption.

You're dead right about that, my friend.. That car reminds me of my grandpa.. lol

Sorry guys, but I'll keep my RX-8. (^_^)

@HonestDictator... Mitsubishi built the Mirage.. i doubt very much that a company like RR would want to copy a name like that considering you could buy about 30 Mirages for the price of 1 RR

Have you guys seen the "Ultimate Silver Metal" color on GT-R 35 Premium edition only? I think that nothing can beat that color. That is one gorgeous color. I had the honor to drive one recently and I am in love with it. It is about 300Man. For now I will dream about it. No thank you for Rolls Royce. The face looks almost like a truck.

Didn't say that, Serrano. If they've got that much in the petty cash, and they like it, then why not? But if I had that kind of money I can think of lots of other things I'd rather spend it on.

But then, that much money gone up the spout, probably horrendous mileage and upkeep.....yeah, you're right, pretty dumb. Or awash in so much money they've lost grip on reality, which amounts to much the same thing.

You are right, I misread your post. Of course, I agree with you. I´d prefer the comfort of the rolls to the chick appeal of those race cars any time.

"I like the girl"

I still think she looks scary.

Who in Japan would pay 32,000,000 yen for a car when thousands of tsunami victims still don't have a home?

The Rolls has never been very sexy, but when you can afford such kind of ride with a full time driver taking you to appointments it is sexy. Or you could be a up coming RAP star in the US and drive it yourself :(. It is only a car.

That model almost looks like she's on stilts.

Hmmm... they do look kind of similar, but nothing like a Rolls. They've sold out to Hollywood glam.

As these are roughly the same price as a house, I suggest the government buy a hundred thousand of them and send them to the people of Tohoku, who have already grown used to living out of vehicles.

Really, those who buy these things in this world really do not qualify as human.

I dig the girl and the car!!!

I wonder how good the air filter is. Will it be able to catch all the radionuclide materials flying in the air? If I had the $$ to purchase such a car I would instead be spending it to migrate to the south of Japan or abroad.
