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 11th April 2006, this Rolls-Royce is resplendent in its superb colour combination of Platinum Silver over Midnight Blue with full magnolia leather interior. The car is offered in excellent condition and comes with a delightful specification. 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 as well as an electric glass sunroof, rear blinds and rear bench seat with full entertainment system. This unmarked, low mileage example has a superb service history, having been looked after throughout its life. 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. Offered with many maintenance invoices, old MoT records, a current MoT test certificate valid until 29th August 2023 and sundry invoices. This Rolls-Royce Phantom really needs to be seen to appreciate how stunning it looks in this particular colour combination. Interested parties should note that the private registration number will be retained by the current vendor and a new age related plate and registration document will be issued to the new owner following the sale.
