There is little doubt that this represents the world's most luxurious car, it is the brand that leads where others follow. A journey of pure refinement and luxury cosseted, as you are, in classic Rolls-Royce burr-walnut and immaculate Connolly leather. Synonymous with historic motorsport, Goodwood is also known for one other famous motoring aspect. A cornerstone of automotive excellence in fact. Rolls-Royce have established their new factory there producing the Phantom, unrestrained luxury, flawless build quality and, needless to say, the most desirable executive automobile on the market today. The ride quality is second to none thanks to its advanced air-ride suspension and automatic self-levelling control system. In March 2005, an Extended Wheelbase Phantom was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show,  it was 9.8” longer than the standard car. The Phantom EWB was, without a doubt, the new benchmark in terms of luxury and road presence, literally overshadowing the rather dull looking Maybach and making the long wheel-base variants of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW’s 7-series and Audi A8 look like glorified taxis.

Costing a staggering £350,000 when new and optioned to the highest specifications, this Phantom with Extended Wheelbase has covered just 25,322 miles (at time of photography) from new. It was ordered new by the property company of one of Russia's most wealthy Oligarchs and maintained without regard to cost. It resided underground at Beechwood House in Hampstead, one of London’s most exclusive mansions, with the first three owners of the car all associated with the original owners property company. The list of options ordered for the car include individual rear seats, rear fridge and cocktail cabinet with dual decanters and glasses. Rear storage for crystal champagne flutes, rear fold-out foot rests, rear picnic tables with flip-up entertainment screens, extended burr-walnut to the steering wheel and drinks holder cover. The car also sits on new seven-star alloy wheels shod with four recent tyres giving the car a contemporary look. An expansive history file comes with the car detailing the services by Rolls-Royce, London with its most recent in October 2022. It comes with its original twin book-pack, both keys, valet door opener and more. The exterior shows stunning royal blue metallic paintwork with the interior unmarked seashell leather piped in dark blue with the headrests carrying the Rolls-Royce monogram and fold down vanity mirrors fitted for the rear passengers convenience. Traditional highly-figured burr walnut completes the opulent interior. Always garage-kept, the car is pristine inside and out with the story continuing with a simply immaculate under-bonnet area and gleaming V12 engine. This must be one of the highest-specification Extended Wheelbase Phantoms available. It appears new and reportedly drives like it.
