The Black Badge Ghost isn’t electric, but it drives like a Rolls-Royce love letter to EVs

Rolls-Royce has long proclaimed its cars are the benchmark for luxury, but the new Black Badge Ghost feels like a yardstick for electric luxury, too.

All the same, while we wait for Spectre, Rolls-Royce's first EV, I can't escape the feeling that its charms are already hiding in plain sight.

Mansory Rolls-Royce Ghost has 720HP and orange accents

And while some may look at Mansory’s Rolls-Royce Ghost as excessive or indiscreet, there’s no doubt the Mansory Ghost has an appeal of its own.

Launched in 2018, the Cullinan is as luxurious, as excessive, and as attention-grabbing as you'd think, particularly in Black Badge form. Look beyond the glitter, though, and there's something more important there too.

The newest Landspeed Collection from Rolls-Royce pays a salute to British engineer Captain George Eyston who, from 1937 to 1938, set three land speed records at the Bonneville salt flats in Utah.
