A panel of judges from What Car?, the UK monthly magazine, has once again declared the Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB the best super-luxury car in the world in its most prestigious class: luxury cars over €100,000.

In awarding the Ghost Extended Wheelbase the What Car? honour, the judges celebrated the motor car’s peerless duality, which combines vibrant driving dynamics with a near-silent and truly cocooning passenger suite, Rolls-Royce said.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Recognition of Ghost Extended Wheelbase by What Car? further strengthens its standing as the highly-successful entrepreneur’s choice of motor car. Ghost continues to stand for a contemporary and more informal manifestation of the brand and, as such, has become the unequivocal choice of pioneers and tastemakers as they ascend through their fields.”

Ghost Extended Wheelbase’s marriage of the very latest technology and contemporary design has become the consummate motor car for entrepreneurs since its launch in 2011. Maximising the indulgent proportions of an Extended Wheelbase, this new generation of highly-successful and influential young people continue to challenge the Bespoke artisans at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England, to interpret the brand in their own image.

In 2016, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars presented a transformative moment in luxury with the introduction of the Black Badge series. This darker design expression and more urgent engineering treatment of Ghost was a truly Bespoke response to a new breed of highly creative and dynamic patrons of luxury.

This honour, and true measure of success in the automotive world, is reflected with sustained customer demand, according to the manufacturers. It also follows numerous plaudits for Rolls-Royce in recent months as New Phantom retains the title of “Best Car in the World”, continuing to earn praise from the world’s most prestigious and discerning critics, including statements that Phantom “Is the pinnacle, the epitome, of motoring luxury” (Autocar), “An all-new version of the finest car in the world” (The Independent), “Has changed what a car can be” (GQ) as well receiving “Best Luxury Car” at the UK Car of the Year Awards and Top Gear Magazine’s “Luxury Car of the Year”.
