Phantom LWB

Long-wheelbase versions of the Rolls-Royce Phantom are now available to customers in Europe.

Sales of the extended Phantom have until now been restricted to the Middle East and Asia, where demand was predicted to be higher.

Enough customers in Europe and the UK have been asking about the car, however, so the 250mm-longer model is being offered here, too.

The extra rear legroom slaps an extra £42,450 on the asking price, with long-wheelbase Phantoms starting at £298,450 – that's £1698 per centimetre.

The added space in the back offers 'even wider scope for personalisation', says Rolls-Royce.
