About ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM COUPE



The Coupe, the fourth new model from Rolls-Royce under BMW Group ownership, is the most driver-orientated model in the Phantom family line-up. This two-door, four-seater model has a 6.75 litre V12, producing 460 bhp and 720 Nm of torque making it the definitive choice for all-day, long distance driving. A spacious picnic boot with split tail compartment gives easy access to 395 litres of space. The lower part of the tailgate provides a comfortable seating platform for two adults when lowered.

The Coupe is an elegant two-door, four-seat coupe that builds on the extraordinary driving experience offered in the Phantom and Drophead Coupe. It will use an all aluminium construction similar to the rest of the Phantom family. However, it will be a unique car in the Phantom family that is designed around the desire to create the world’s foremost transcontinental tourer. It is placed between these two models from the British marquee and even the Coupe is hand-built at the company’s manufacturing plant in Goodwood, England.

The unique architecture of the car is further augmented by the rear-hinged coach doors, allowing the easiest possible access to the rear lounge seat. To ensure a perfect balance of refinement and driver involvement, Rolls-Royce developed a new gearbox programme, stiffer rear dampers and modified spring rates.

The Phantom Coupe’s cabin can be ordered with an optional, full-length starlight headlining, incorporating 1600 tiny fibre optics to create the ambience of a star-filled night sky. The new model is also available with a brushed steel bonnet and A-pillar surround previously seen on its experimental predecessor, the 101EX.

This will be the first time that Rolls-Royce has exhibited the complete Phantom Series at an Asian motor show. Bespoke versions of the Phantom Extended Wheel Base and the Phantom Drophead Coupe are also available.

Our Verdict

The Coupe is the last and final entrant of the Rolls Royce Phantom series. These cars are the very benchmark of what motoring is all about. The cars are built to perfection to last a lifetime and to be the perfect companion to its prized owners. People who buy these cars are unaffected by any changes and it is only money that does the speaking. It is visually drawing and is very luxurious to look and feel. It performs super-smoothly on-road. But it is flawed and has a couple downsides in terms of pricing, dynamic look and somewhere falls short of what it was intended for.
