With a design inspired by the J Class racing yachts of the 1930’s one would think this car would drive like a land based yacht. However, this is a Rolls Royce which you will enjoy driving rather than being driven in. Based on the 100EX concept that was unveiled at the Geneva motorshow in 2004, the Phantom Drophead Coupe is 9 inches shorter than the Phantom sedan and rides on 21 inch wheels as standard with the Rolls Royce badge that stays static while it is in motion.
Powered by the buttery smooth 6.75l V12 under the elegant brushed stainless-steel bonnet, the Phantom Drophead Coupe handles with an agility and nimbleness that is surprising considering its size, propelling it to 100 in just 5.7 seconds. Coach doors (otherwise known as suicide doors) allow the windscreen pillar to be an extension of the aluminium frame which results in the most rigid chassis of any contemporary convertible. The full grain leather and natural wood veneers and the six layer soft top hood provides superb insulation and enhances the cabin’s overall comfort and character. This Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead even comes with it’s own Umbrella smartly located inside the driver’s door when needed for those rainy days.
This is a well maintained example that has only covered 36 300km over the past nine years. It has an English white paintjob, a Mocassin interior, a veneered instrument panel, veneered steering wheel spokes, teak decking, the brushed steel package and a Navy blue hood. The epitome of pure luxury and class for absolute great value.
