With many great coupes launched under the Rolls Royce brand, it was time to add a new member to the Phantom family, the Coupe version.
While the coupe was not a sports car, it was still a sportier version with different dampers, a different roll bar and a more precise steering. The Rolls Royce CEO talked about the coupe saying it was more of a driver’s car.
The Coupe offered seating for 4 in great luxury, with great headroom and legroom for everyone.
The exterior design was inspired by the older coupes of the past, and the sloping roof was chosen from more than 3 variants proposed at the time, demonstrating the great attention given to every detail.
The coupe had a higher top speed, but it was still luxurious and comfortable.
The hinged doors added to the car’s attractive design and getting inside the cabin was a real pleasure. The controls were intuitively placed and were easy to reach while driving.
The attention to details was easily noticeable inside the cabin as well, with elegant touches added to the dashboard, such as an elegant dash clock.
Excepting for the saloon, the Coupe was one of the quietest cars available due to the extraordinary refinement levels.
Despite the heavy body for a Coupe, the luxurious vehicle reached 100 kph in around 5.6 seconds. The 6749 cc V12 engine developed 453 hp and was mated with a 6-speed manual transmission, the power being sent to the rear wheels.
