Segment: Luxury

Rolls-Royce designed the Phantom Coupe to be driven by its owner, not by some hired chaffeur, and it succeeded.

Under BMW management, Rolls-Royce brand raised again, and the Spirit of Ecstasy shined proud on the Pantheon grille. The Coupe version of the Phantom was the most impressive personal luxury vehicle from its times. It was designed from scratch, built on an aluminum space-frame, and powered by a state-of-the-art engine.

Rolls-Royce is the most luxurious brand in the world, and it was the same in 2012 when the British brand introduced the Phantom Coupe. It was a new era for the famous carmaker, and with the technological help from the German carmaker, it succeeded to become great again. The big luxurious barge was designed to impress. Its massive size, flat and vertical front end, and low-roof stance were just a few elements that made the Phantom Coupe looks mean on the road. Its small headlights next to the massive silver grille didn't look out of place.

With its rear-hinged doors (suicide-type), the Phantom Coupe offered very easy access inside the luxurious cabin. It was a four-passenger vehicle, but it was mainly built for those at the front. Except for a few buttons, there was no plastic inside. A Rolls-Royce should have only leather, wood, and metallic interior elements. An infotainment display carried-over from the BMW 7-Series was installed on the dash panel, above the center stack.

The technology under the bodywork was another masterpiece, from the 6.75 V12 engine to the drivetrain and the suspension that could cancel the noise and offer a great comfort level.
