I’m just getting used to feeling unloved driving the Ghost. It’s quite the maddest sensation when a woman in a £100,000 Range Rover snarls at you – especially as I could barely afford to fuel her car on a daily basis.
Driving a Rolls-Royce obviously means I’m successful. And we Brits just love to knock a success story at every available opportunity.
And that means if I make the slightest driving cock-up at the wheel, it’s open season on the posh bloke in the driving seat!
At least I am cocooned in a cabin of luxurious bling. My favourite feature thus far? Forget the grunt from that V12, the armchair seats and the whisper quiet engine, it’s the fairy lights.
Yep, the Ghost has an interior headlining covered in hundreds of star-like twinklers when you get in at night. It’s quite lovely and reassures me that even Rolls-Royce has a sense of humour.
Unlike the Cotswold lady in the Range Rover.
