With an imposing look and presence, the Rolls Royce Phantom was the choice of the buyers looking for exclusivity and opulence.
An ultra-premium luxury sedan, the Phantom was sold for a huge price compared to other luxurious sedans on the market, such as the BMW 7-Series or the Mercedes S-Class.
Easily recognisable as a Rolls Royce, BMW highly contributed to the Phantom’s engineering, while the model was equipped with the latest technologies available.
The Phantom was available in the base version or the EWB - the extended wheelbase model. Opting for the EWB was like adding another luxurious vehicle to your fleet, but value didn’t seem to be a point of interest for the buyers of such a model.
Most of the luxurious features came standard, such as 21-inch aluminum wheels, adjustable air suspension, bi-xenon headlights, LED running lights, soft-close power front doors, a sunroof, front and rear parking assist, heated seats, picnic tables, bluetooth, a navigation system, a premium 15-speaker sound system, voice controls and keyless go.
The interior was fitted with a leather headliner with wool and cashmere accents.
Besides the numerous standard leather and wood trim options, customers could choose their preferred color for the leather upholstery for an additional fee.
Other optionals included different alloys, a front and rear camera system, a rear center console, a drinks cabinet, the “Starlight Headliner”, rear curtains, 12-inch monitors in the back, a trunk-mounted wine cooler and others.
Due to the enormous dimensions, the Phantom was not the most pleasant car to drive around town, as handling was not top priority for such a luxurious and opulent sedan.
The ride quality however was flawless. Bumps, potholes - you name it - and the passengers could continue their nap as if it never happened.
