2012 Rolls Royce Phantom Review

(0 Stars)  A mansion on wheels for when price is no object.

Overview
The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a car unlike any other. The regal sedan's squared-off shape lends the Phantom an unmatched presence. Everything about the Phantom can be measured in superlatives; even the standard wheels measure twenty-one inches in diameter. A 6.7-liter V-12 engine provides 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque, enabling 0-to-60-mph runs in 5.7 seconds (add 0.1 second for the extended-wheelbase version). The Phantom is surprisingly good to drive, but the real treat is being chauffeured. The rear "coach" doors are hinged at the rear to make entry and exit more graceful for the lucky passengers, and they close automatically at the touch of a button. Placing the rear seats slightly aft of the Phantom's C-pillar improves side-impact safety and also shelters those being chauffeured from prying eyes. The Extended Wheelbase model lengthens the Phantom by ten inches and affords rear-seat passengers even more room. Opting for four seats instead of five frees up space between the rear seats for a drink cabinet or a humidor. The Phantom provides an incredibly serene and comfortable ride and is quiet even at speeds approaching 80 mph. Modern-day accoutrements like navigation, a DVD player, and a 420-watt audio system are available but are cleverly hidden: the navigation screen hides behind a revolving panel with an analog clock, and the power seat controls are tucked into the center armrest. If money really is no object, there is no substitute for the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
