2006 Rolls-Royce Phantom
The Rolls-Royce Phantom VII is a luxury saloon car that was introduced in 2003. It was the first car to be launched after BMW purchased Rolls-Royce in 1998.
The Phantom VII was seen as the car that revived the Rolls-Royce brand and restored the manufacturers credibility in producing luxury cars. From 2003 the Phantom was the only car produced by Rolls-Royce until the launch of the smaller Ghost in 2009. The Phantom was the company’s flagship model, but was less exclusive at around 800 – 1000 units per year than all previous Phantoms of which not more than 600 units were produced per year.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom was original designed with a 9.0l V16 engine in mind. BMW wanted the ultimate luxury car to have the ultimate engine however, the idea was later binned in favour of a “more economical” 6.75l V12. Not that performance figures really matter on a “Rolls” but the V12 produces 460 hp or 338 kW and 720 Nm of torque delivered to the road through a 6 speed automatic transmission which means that the Phantom has more than enough grunt to get you where you need to be quickly, comfortably and in style.
This specific car is a 2006 Phantom with 79 000 km on from new. It has a full-service history with Rolls-Royce. The car has recently had a service and its shocks replaced. The finishing on this car is exquisite as they are on all Rolls-Royces. A must see in the flesh to truly appreciate the magnificence that is Rolls-Royce.
