Rolls-Royce has long represented the ultimate British luxury automobile. A completely new Phantom sedan has been the result of the BMW influence on Rolls-Royce. As expected, a 453-bhp 6.75L V-12 motivates the Phantom via a ZF 6-speed automatic. Although performance is not the primary reason most customers buy the Phantom, it will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and continue to a governed 130 mph top speed (USA) or 149 mph (non-USA). The Rolls-Royce tradition of custom-built cars continues with a choice of 15 interior upholstery colors, matched wood veneers, and two-tone exterior paint. To satisfy special requests, a Bespoke programme is available to further personalize each Rolls-Royce.
