A historic model in the continuing history of the Rolls-Royce marque, the Phantom was the first all-new design to be introduced by the company following its takeover by BMW. Produced at a new factory near Goodwood in Sussex, the Phantom revived a great name from Rolls-Royce's past that had always been synonymous with unrestrained luxury. In keeping with the tradition established by previous Phantoms, the newcomer was a very large motor car, outstretching the old Silver Seraph by 18" while boasting a radiator shell 4" taller. Priced at around £260,000 at time of launch, it was also 40% more expensive. While the body structure represented the ultimate in automotive technology, its accoutrements remained entirely traditional in choice of materials, consisting of the finest hide trim, genuine woollen carpets and carefully selected wood veneers.
Originally registered on 23rd March 2012, this stunning Rolls-Royce is a one owner example and presents in totally as new condition. The very modest mileage of 9,100 is backed up by a service history and a collection of previous MoT test certificates. The specification of these magnificent machines is superb with all the usual refinements expected of such a prestigious marque, however the umbrellas fitted into the ‘A’ post is a very nice touch. Finished in Diamond Black with black interior and Piano Black dashboard, the colour combination is broken up nicely with a polished aluminium bonnet and the interior benefits from a starlight headliner. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with the original service books, this vehicle could be summed up in one word; magnificent.
