Rolls-Royce Ghost Test Drive and Review-- Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
A test drive in a 2010 Rolls-Royce with Chris Moran. Rich people are different from the rest of us. Their wants and needs involve parameters and details completely foreign to the proletariat. While we use our vehicles for transportation, utility and sport, the rich view their automobiles as a necessary accoutrement to their elevated lifestyles.
For the ultra-wealthy, an appropriate equivalent might be an original Remington bronze or Picasso painting. And just as they need art in their mansions, they need beautiful transportation. The 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost lives up to those lofty requirements by simultaneously being a rolling work of art and a status symbol beyond reproach.
Like access to the Queen, our time with the Ghost was strictly limited, so comprehensive driving impressions will have to wait. But what we did get was a rare glimpse into what the world's richest inhabitants will enjoy when the Ghost goes on sale this year. And as you'd expect, life is good on this side of the financial Bell Curve.
In the world of automobiles, there are better vehicles than the 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost. Some may feature more complex and innovative engineering. Others may provide more performance. There are certainly more expensive and exclusive cars.
But none of these facts matter. To those attracted to the newest, smaller Roller, what matters more is how the Ghost goes about its business of enhancing a well-off individual's life.
Certainly, the engineering is solid. It's what you'd expect of Rolls-Royce's caretakers at BMW. Approximately 20-percent of what's used in the Ghost is related to the current and previous generation BMW 7 Series. In other words, Rolls-Royce started with premium stock and went no where but up.
Certainly, the 2010 Ghost has more street presence than BMW's flagship. The differences are so great that most would never know the two were related, even with the knowledge that the hallowed British marque is under German control.
The Ghost's lines are artfully drawn, not a bit fussy or over done. They are simple and elegant, and impart a sense of solidity. Important details such as the coach doors (otherwise referred to as "suicide" doors by the unwashed masses) allowed designers to make a single element of the front and rear door handles. The design simply looks right. Tiny details reinforce the aura, including the "RR" centers that spin freely within the wheels so the logo remains upright at all times.
While there's not much to set the Rolls apart at the rear -- those chromed Exhaust tips are a $3,200 option -- up front the car's heritage is unmistakable. Set off by the optional $5,000 Silver Satin Bonnet finish, the smaller-than-on-the-Phantom recessed grille looks appropriately updated and none-too-large given its surroundings. The strong horizontal shape of the Xenon headlamps (with integrated running LEDs) accentuates the fenders and provides another familial styling cue. A single line of turn signal LEDs rest directly below the main lamps, and standard foglights would apparently be gauche.
And, of course, one cannot overlook the Spirit of Ecstasy. She's been the brand's mascot since the very beginning, and looks remarkable for being 99 years old. She first adorned a Rolls-Royce in 1911, and has been used in various poses ever since. To protect against theft and in the event of a collision with a pedestrian, she quickly retracts into the faux radiator shell. Find her image in the gallery and look at how lovingly she was sculpted. If you look close enough, you can see how her young eyes look eagerly ahead. While setting a good example for all, her eager attitude is warranted given the performance available from the Ghost.
Based on the twin-turbo V12 from the fourth-generation E66 7-Series, the Ghost's engine has been stroked from 6.0 to 6.6 liters and produces 563 horsepower at 5,250 rpm with 575 pound-feet of torque at just 1,500 rpm. The gearbox is based on a unit spreading through BMW's ranks, the excellent ZF eight-speed automatic.

Rolls Royce Day Around the Mountains of Austria
I had one of the best days when my Aston Martin-Rolls Royce car dealer
called me up to offer me to test drive two Rolls Royce Phantoms, and drive
them in a nice tour with a group of people around the country of Austria..
I tried so hard to include most of that trip in the video.. I hope you will
enjoy it.. The trip was for 10 hours, we drove mostly 7-8 hours and the
rest were for lunch and breaks..

Car Tour -- Rolls-Royce Ghost (2011)
In-depth tour of a 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost, giving you an opportunity to see
and learn about the majority of exterior and interior features that make
this the more driver-oriented model of the Rolls-Royce family.
This video was improvised (i.e. no script), so please excuse the occasional
fumble for words. As someone who's logged 1000s of miles with RRs and BMWs
you'll have to excuse my many references to both cars, but the Ghost does
borrow a lot from the BMW 7-series. I may make a video of my Alpina B7 in
the future just to underline the similarity of their interior features.
Rolls Royce [MegaFactories - Super Cars - National Geographic] [ SUPER CARS ]
Rolls-Royce Limited was a renowned British car manufacturing company and
later, aero-engine manufacturing company founded by Charles Stewart Rolls
and Sir Frederick Henry Royce on 15 March 1906 as the result of a
partnership formed in 1904.
In 1971, Rolls-Royce was crippled by the costs of developing the advanced
RB211 jet engine, resulting in the nationalization of the company as
Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited. In 1973, the car division was separated from
the parent company as Rolls-Royce Motors. Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited
continued as a nationalized company until it was privatised in 1987 as

Inside The Rolls Royce Ghost
I had the oportunity to get into this brand new Rolls Royce Ghost during
the inauguration of Neubauer's new car dealers (including Lamborghini,
Jaguar and McLaren). The comfort is supreme and the silence is gold. The
smell from the leather is not agressive like in new cars but smells so good
and smooth. I especially like the button to close the door and the umbrella
in the door. Enjoy !
Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility
in Germany. Mercedes-Benz dealers must sign separate agreements to sell
According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.

vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
