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
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
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.

look at the 1999 Shelby Series 1.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the

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
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

132762 / 1999 Shelby Series 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cyssvyp
This 1999 Shelby Series 1 is one of the late production Shelby Series 1
automobiles, actually produced in 2005. With just 440 miles on the clock,
it is in virtually new condition in every measurable way and is the one to
own if an investment-grade Shelby is on your wish list. The custom-built
bodywork was designed to evoke the muscular 2-seater curves of the original
Cobra, but still have its own look. With so few miles, this car is
completely unmarked, and even areas like the nose and rockers show zero
evidence of road rash. Panel fit is exemplary, as you would expect from a
hand-crafted work of art, and the paint finish is deep and lustrous. In
short, this car speaks for itself, and the result attracts a crowd every
time you stop.
Power comes from a highly tuned Oldsmobile 4.0 liter V8 which was specially
chosen for this project due to its cutting-edge technology and high
power-to-weight ratio. Making 320 horsepower and 290 pounds of
torque in this application, the silky-smooth powerplant definitely isn't
from your father's Oldsmobile. The engine bay is race grade throughout,
from the fully exposed pushrod suspension to the silicone hoses, there's
very little evidence that this was a production-line vehicle. You'll also
dig things like the fabricated aluminum overflow tank, the lovely TIG welds
along the firewall, and the awesome Shelby snake eye logo embossed on the
underside of the hood's support structure. And it's all in perfect, unused
condition, with everything fully functional.
Like the Corvette, the engine spins a torque tube connected to a
slick-shifting 6-speed ZF transaxle specially modified for the Series 1.
The suspension is a highly sophisticated race-quality setup that uses
pushrods to mount the coil-over shocks inboard to reduce unsprung weight.
Out back, an independent suspension carries more race-quality parts,
including more coil-over shocks. The massive brakes have been borrowed from
the C5 Corvette, and custom 3-piece Shelby wheels are not only light, but
incredibly strong. Even Goodyear was getting in on the act, creating a
special run of custom 18-inch tires for the Series 1.
Deep leather buckets are supportive and custom made for this application,
featuring Carroll Shelby's signature embossed in the backs. The custom dash
uses a mixture of custom and off-the-shelf GM components that ensure
reliability without compromising style and performance. That means powerful
HVAC that will chill you in the middle of the desert, and a stereo that
delivers big sound thanks to speakers scattered throughout the passenger
compartment. Of course, there's the requisite Shelby badge on the dash, as
well as the serial number and another signature, and the floors are covered
with embroidered floor mats. There is no trunk, with the rear area being
filled with a fuel cell set within the wheelbase for ideal weight
distribution, but there is a snug black canvas convertible top that folds
easily into a well behind the seats, where it's hidden by a hard cover.
Building a custom, hand-built automobile that meets all of today's
emissions and safety standards is no easy task, and that's why the Series 1
is so special. Uncompromising in its quality and dedication to performance,
this car's only real rival might be a Ferrari. Exclusive, fast, and
beautifully built, this CSX5004 is investment-grade throughout, and an
absolute blast to drive.
