The most inescapable thing about driving a Rolls-Royce Ghost is never being able to forget how much it costs. So let's get that out of the way: with a sticker price of $460,350, it's a car that costs more than a house in many parts of the country. This knowledge never escapes you, a constant reminder that you're visiting a world where just the cost of the options fitted to the car seen here would buy a pretty good pre-owned Mercedes S-Class. You remember it when you park or whenever another car gets a little too close in traffic, given the pricey consequences of a scratch or scrape.

Let's take an early look at the cabin of the SUV. In February this year, we got our first glimpse at the refreshed Porsche Cayenne through a batch of spy photos. Today, we can share more shots of the facelifted luxury SUV , which was caught testing on public roads in Germany. This prototype doesn’t feature all the expected changes but there’s a lot to be seen.
