I got a ride in a $528,570 Rolls-Royce -- and the best features are in the back seat

If you’re looking for a car that will give you a massage while smoking a cigar, go no further than the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

We got a ride in a Rolls-Ryoce Ghost “Black Badge” edition and it seems safe to say the best part of the experience was getting cosy in the back seat. The roughly $US306,000 ($AUD388,712) car came with more than $US100,000-worth ($AUD127,030) of luxurious add-on features — and it was a sight to behold.

Scroll down for a look inside:

Here it is in all its glory: a $AU528,570 luxury Rolls-Royce.

The car comes with a 6.6-litre, V12 engine that offers 563 hp and 620 lb.-ft. of torque.

This Ghost featured Rolls-Royce's 'cobalto blue' leather interior option. It's a bit cartoonish at first, but I grew to appreciate how the bright seats popped against the car's black accents over time.

The seats were roomy, comfortable, and even give back massages! It's not the best massage function I've ever tried, but my lower back definitely felt better walking out of the car. The seats can move back-and-forth and also come with heat warmers.

The seat's headrests were extremely comfortable -- they're basically mini pillows.

Naturally, the Ghost supports dual climate control. The knobs allow you to control air intensity and temperature. There's also USB ports and even a DVD player integrated into that center floor console.

The car comes with Rolls-Royce's bespoke audio system and the acoustics are solid. The speakers aren't mind-blowing by any means, but it's definitely a sound upgrade you can only get in luxury vehicles.

Both rear seats face mini displays. These aren't touchscreen responsive, but can be controlled with a knob in the rear center console (more on that in a bit.) You can use the display to see your mapped surroundings, control the radio, and watch anything you put in the DVD player.

There's also a food tray that can double as a laptop holder.

That brings us to the knob in the rear center console, which allows you to control the functions on the display screen. Personally, I would prefer a touchscreen, especially since you have to share the knob with another person. But it works just fine.

The console also lets you move the seats and turn on the heat and massage functions.

Tucked into that rear center console is an actual cigarette container! Press the button once to retrieve the ash tray and twice to access your cigarettes. If you're going to smoke in a car, it seems suiting it would be in a bright blue Rolls-Royce.

Just behind that console is a hidden compartment with an ice bucket. We kept some beers inside, but this seems best suited for a nice bottle of champagne.

Other fun features include a secret umbrella compartment tucked into the rear doors...

...And a beautiful starry roof. The starlight headliner is one of the many luxurious options added to this car and can be custom-made to create a specific constellation.

Riding in the Ghost 'Black Badge' edition is about as luxurious you can get next to a full stretch limousine. Even its incredibly plush carpet is luxurious enough to justify sleeping on. My only regret riding in the Rolls-Royce was that I didn't get to do so for longer.
