Did you just spend a considerable sum on one of the fantastic new ultra-luxury SUVs that have hit the market? In that case, perhaps now you need are seeking a suitable car for those times when the family isn’t tagging along. And what better car to fill that need than this Friday’s drool car; a 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe. It could just be the perfect complement to that new SUV. Sure, it weighs more than most sport utilities, but it has a wildly different purpose.
Forget about ground clearance, all-wheel drive, and cargo capacity. This coupe is all about coddling you and up to one passenger. Sure, there is a small backseat, but no one buys a coupe for the rear-seat setup. Unlike most of their models, this is one Rolls that is all about the driving experience. For example, you will notice the Sport button encouraging aggressive driving – something that would probably get most chauffeurs fired. An adaptive air suspension does its best to keep the car level should the driver decide to push the car to its limits through the corners, while the 6.75-litre V12 produces 453 bhp and 531 lb-ft of torque, which is certainly enough to keep up with traffic. That’s good enough for a 5.8-second 0 to 60 dash, while the top speed has been limited to 155 mph. Don’t for a second think that this is a Ferrari-rivalling vehicle, however, as the focus is still primarily set on the ultimate luxury experience.
This super low-mileage Dark Indigo Phantom Coupe is offered for sale by Romans International. Here is what they have to say about it:
The Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé is an extremely rare and unique car with phenomenal presence and engineering… Step inside, closing the door behind you at the touch of a button, and you are greeted by a suitably spacious, well appointed cabin with all the creature comforts and cabin quality we have come to expect from this quintessentially British brand.
Beautifully stated. There is nothing like a Rolls-Royce, and the Phantom Coupe is unique within the Rolls lineup. There really is nothing better for those whose SUV needs are already met and simply want to be pampered on their weekend drives. At £179,950, this Phantom provides a huge discount over the new asking price of £350,000 back in 2010. And with just over 4,000 miles on the clock, it might as well still be new.
