For Refined, immensely comfortable and very fast, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead is also far more agile than it looks. Fine materials, all put together beautifully.

Against Wind noise at motorway speed is disappointing. Rear visibility is extremely limited due to that swooping roofline, a pillar-box slot of a rear window and tiny rear-view mirrors. Short of some safety equipment.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe is about as ostentatiously in-your-face as cars get. If you like that sort of thing, there’s nothing like it.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

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.
