The Rolls-Royce Phantom VII was launched in 2003, it was the first Rolls-Royce developed and introduced after BMW purchased the right to use the Rolls-Royce name and logo in 1998. It is credited with successfully reviving the Rolls-Royce brand and restoring Rolls-Royce's credibility as a maker of luxury cars. 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 four inches 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 in the passenger compartment.
Originally registered on 29th March 2006, this Rolls-Royce stayed with the first owner until May 2019. Finished in the superb colour combination of Black Kirsch with Moccasin interior, this Phantom has a delightful specification including a sunroof, Veneered picnic tables and RR monogram to the headrests. To be expected from such a prestigious marque the car is well appointed, with standard features including electric memory seats, heated seats, cruise control, air conditioning, together with leather interior and significant amounts of burr walnut. This unmarked, very low mileage example has a superb service history, having had 13 services in its life, the first 12 were carried out at Rolls-Royce London with the most recent service being carried out by P & A Wood. The interior of a Rolls-Royce Phantom is an area of beauty, with ample legroom, and the neatest umbrella stowage you will ever see on a car. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 21st May 2021 and the original service books. This unmarked Rolls-Royce Phantom really needs to be seen to appreciate how stunning it looks in this particular colour combination.
