Which used Rolls-Royce Phantom saloon should I buy?

There's only one model available, and that rather negates any real conundrums over trim levels and engine sizes when you are considering buying a Phantom. However, you don't just buy a Phantom, you buy into a Phantom.

These Rolls-Royces are built bespoke to the original customer's every quirk and demand. Colour choices, both inside and out, and equipment levels have been carefully tailored to suit the first owner's needs, so if you're in the market for a used Phantom, yet expect it to fulfil your own list of specifications, you may have to compromise a little.

There's little likelihood that any two cars left the factory in exactly the same specification, never mind one that will suit you.

If preserving residual value is right up on your list of priorities, then any aftermarket 'bling' is best avoided. It's vulgar and unnecessary, you see.
