Rolls-Royce stands at the pinnacle of the super luxury market, and the Rolls-Royce Phantom is the best of the best. Although we understand why many drivers would fall head-over-heels for the flagship vehicle in the Rolls-Royce lineup, the truth is that it may not be the best fit for every need. Those who would consider a smaller, more practical model should start by comparing the Rolls-Royce Ghost vs. Phantom, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena has done the research for you.

Ghost vs. Phantom: Pricing and Configurations

Both the Rolls-Royce Ghost and the Rolls-Royce Phantom can be equipped with an optional extended wheelbase (EWB). Here’s how both the standard and optional configurations vary by price:

  • Rolls-Royce Ghost – $311,000 MSRP
  • Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB – $345,900 MSRP
  • Rolls-Royce Phantom – $450,000 MSRP
  • Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB – $492,425 MSRP

We’ve focused on the configurations which these two models share, but it’s worth pointing out that the Phantom is also available as a two-door coupe or a drophead coupe. If you like the look and feel of the Ghost, you may also want to take a closer look at its sister coupe, the Rolls-Royce Wraith.

Ghost vs. Phantom: Image and Appeal

Of course, cost is simply no object for many of those who choose to drive with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena. If you’d pay almost anything for the perfect touring experience, think about the kind of impression you’d like to make as you drive around Glendale and Burbank:

Why Choose the Rolls-Royce Ghost?

  • Although it’s backed by plenty of power, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is a smaller motor car, favored by drivers who’d like to look more like a bullet than a freight train or an ocean liner.
  • The Rolls-Royce Ghost is the most popular of our models, but with so many optional upgrades and features, it’s anything but common. What’s more, only the Ghost is currently available in a Black Badge configuration.

Why Choose the Rolls-Royce Phantom?

  • The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a genuine saloon car, a mobile touring suite designed to provide the ultimate in backseat comfort. It’s heavier, and not quite as agile, but it feels like a personal fortress.
  • The Rolls-Royce Phantom is the oldest of all these models, and although it’s currently in its eighth generation, its history dates all the way back to 1925. Without a doubt, it’s the preferred option for those who truly want to embody the Rolls-Royce legacy.

Rolls-Royce Ghost vs. Phantom: By the Numbers

Do you plan on driving your Rolls-Royce most of the time, or do you generally travel by chauffeur? Here’s what you should keep in mind while comparing the Rolls-Royce Ghost vs. Phantom:

  • If you do opt for a Black Badge Ghost, you’ll receive an even more capable engine with 603 horsepower! That’s more power than you can get in any Rolls-Royce Phantom–and the Black Badge Wraith Coupe provides even more.
