Hand-built at a facility in Goodwood, England, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is BMW’s take on what the quintessential British luxury car should be. It’s vast and imposing in any of its four bodystyles – saloon, extended-wheelbase saloon, coupe and drop-head cabriolet.
The car is beautifully built from the finest materials available, while Rolls-Royce quirks like coach (rear-hinged) doors, a power-reserve dial in place of a rev-counter and self-levelling badges in the wheels underline the attention to detail.
Shifting all that metal, wood and leather is a 6.8-litre V12 engine, which makes it incredibly fast for a car of this size. You’ll enjoy the experience whether you’re sitting in the front or the back, and that’s just what you should get from a Rolls Royce.
