As the carmaker's flagship vehicle, the 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom
is a four-passenger ultra-luxury car, available as a four-door sedan, a two-door coupe, or a two-door convertible with a retractable roof. Powered by a 6.7-liter V-12 engine coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Phantom is rear-wheel drive.
Exceptional because it offers so much in the way of amenities, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is handcrafted and exhibits superb driving manners. The Phantom boasts an alloy chassis and body and offers amazing features in every configuration. Fuel economy is in an expected 11 mpg city / 18 mpg highway range.

On the Outside
An imposing, stately vehicle, with aluminum alloy body panels and a stainless steel front grille, the Rolls-Royce Phantom wears the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, which disappears into the grille when the car is parked.
From the Inside
With only first-class materials adorning the cabin, the Rolls-Royce Phantom uses leather, wood, and metal expertly to combine old-world charm with new-world technology. For example, hand-polished wood accents blend into a 21st century iDrive-like infotainment interface.
Relaxed yet calmly powerful on the road, the Rolls-Royce Phantom exhibits rather light steering that's not particularly full of feel. However, the brakes are powerful, if not over-boosted, and body roll is kept to a minimum. The V-12 engine produces 453 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque and is estimated to go from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.
Standard safety systems on the Rolls-Royce Phantom include front occupant front airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags, and traction and stability control. Sedans have full-length side curtain airbags for rear seat occupants, while the convertible features automatically deployed roll-over protection.
