An important 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. Certain dashboard features recalled those of earlier models, while there was a choice of five-seater 'Lounge' or four-seater ‘Theatre' accommodation.
This stunning lefthand drive Rolls-Royce has only covered 7110 miles in nine years on British roads and, to be expected, presents in first class condition. The black coachwork is unmarked and is complemented by gold door handles and Spirit of Ecstasy, the light grey interior gives the appearance it has hardly ever been sat in. A superb service history confirms the low mileage and the car has very recently been serviced by H R Owen with the odometer at that stage reading 7107 miles. The interior of a Rolls-Royce Phantom is an area of beauty, with ample legroom, leather and walnut. The silent and comfortable ride is synonymous with such a prestigious marque. This one owner example is supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 29th September 2020 together with the original service books and the neatest umbrella stowage you will ever see on a car.
