Intro: The 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead is truly a motoring masterpiece of rolling art that could very well be, the most lavish and opulent convertible that you will ever lay eyes on.
The Phantom Drophead marks the future for Rolls-Royce by blending the classic with the innovative. Features such as the mechanically rising and lowering "Spirit of Ecstasy" hood ornament and the classic rear-hinged doors with standard power closing mechanism exemplify this unique mix.
The Phantom Drophead's exquisite design elements make it a stand out on any roadway in the world. The pronounced front corners and bold new LED headlights flank a front grill that resembles a Roman colonnade. Even the convertible cloth-top is striking with its teak deck and cashmere lining.
Performance: The Phantom is powered by a massive six and three quarter liter V12 that sends 453 horsepower and 531 pound feet of torque to the rear wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission, taking the nearly 6,000-lb Rolls from 0 to 60 in just 5.6 seconds.
Fuel Economy: Fuel Economy for the Phantom Drophead Coupe is as follows:
Features: The sumptuous 4-passenger cabin offers a burled wood dash laden with notable features such as a power reserve gauge and clock panel that rotates to reveal the multimedia and navigation systems. The controller for these systems, as well as seat and convertible controls stay respectfully hidden in the armrest until needed.
The thin multifunction steering wheel sits as the delicate helm to this powerful vessel, shod in leather and guiding the optional 21-inch wheels with self-centering "RR" logo.
Safety: Standard safety features include a pop-up rollover protection system, runflat tires, and the Rolls-Royce Telematics system, which automatically notifies a response center in the event of a crash.
Pricing/Warranty: Base MSRP for the 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe is $443,000. The Phantom Drophead comes with a 4-year, unlimited miles basic warranty with free roadside service.
