Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
You don’t enter Rolls-Royce ownership under any illusion of frugality, and its enormous purchase price is to be expected. So are the eye-opening running costs, but again, anyone who can shell out this kind of money for a car won’t really care.
What’s more, the Phantom is very well equipped, with four-wheel steering, air suspension, lots of leather and wood, a head-up display and of course an automatic gearbox as standard. Rolls-Royce’s bespoke programme allows plenty of scope for customisation; you can have pretty much anything you want – at a price.
