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, which 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.
This Phantom Coupé was originally registered by Rybrook Rolls-Royce as a demonstrator and was specified in this stunning colour combination of Metropolitan Blue with Seashell extended leather interior. The car was purchased by the vendor in 2013 and has been cherished ever since, maintained regardless of cost and presented in absolutely immaculate condition. The original specification includes the all-important starlight leather headlining, Piano black veneer, 21” fully polished alloy wheels, automatic soft close doors and boot lid, two Rolls-Royce door umbrellas, front and rear parking cameras, garage door opener, 15 speaker premium surround sound, active cruise control, sat nav, Bluetooth, ambient interior lighting, heated seats and automatic Spirit of Ecstasy. Quite simply, this car is the very height of luxury, there is nothing aside from a private jet which would be better appointed for a journey to the south of France.
Further cementing just how fastidious the vendor is, the car had over £12,000 of paintwork in 2018, just to bring it up to the standard he desired, attending to any stone chips which had been picked-up over the preceding years. A further £8,205 was spent in 2021, attending to rubber seals around the windows, doors, wings, arch clips and so on, the car now must be seen to be fully appreciated. These cars are sure to go down as one of the most desirable modern Rolls-Royce’s in years to come, produced in such small numbers and beginning to look even better with age, this example would be the perfect addition to any collection of significant cars.
