The vehicle will be presented by Rowan Atkinson, who will introduce you to the 9.0-liter V16 engine of the car.

During his appearance as a guest in Top Gear’s reasonably priced car, Atkinson explained that Rolls-Royce originally designed the Phantom to use this engine, but the project got canceled. However, the company had already produced a few such powerplants and when the actor asked the company to place one inside a Phantom Coupe, they were more than happy to fulfill his wish, especially since the car was featured in the aforementioned movie.
