The line of Rolls-Royce Ghost vehicles was first established in 2009, with this latest model designed around the ‘architecture of luxury’ – making it similar, in many ways, to the BMW series. Its flawless design ensures drivers can immerse themselves in a high-end experience behind the wheel whilst also enjoying day-to-day practicality. Although it’s a spacious car, it pays homage to a neo-classical symbol of opulence and wealth. Some describe this car as a fortress – and whether you’re behind the wheel or travelling in it as a passenger, you’ll always feel safe on the road.

The premium manufacturer has a long history of development over the years, and the show-stopping Flying Spur is a culmination of years of expertise and knowing its customers inside out. It’s a small limousine-type car which comes with four-wheel drive and Bentley’s 6.0-litre W12 engine, which offers stunning performance – and is finished with finest wood and leather trim inside for extra luxury points.

The Range Rover is the cream of the crop, offering a smooth, relaxing driving experience by adjusting its height through its electronic air suspension system. Large yet nimble, the new luxury seven-seater is easy to manoeuvre on the road, and active noise cancellation, four-zone climate control and a cabin air purification system are all stand-out features.
