2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé Car Review
This is the new Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé. This 2-two door, four-seat convertible is a less formal interpretation of classic Rolls Royce design using the lightweight rigidity of an all aluminum space frame. It marries modern technology to a sleek, streamline convertible body. Its exterior lines echo the timeless styling of the great Rolls Royce cars, a long bonnet, large diameter wheels, short front and long rear overhangs and the quintessential dynamic line descending along its flanks.
Inside, the design emphasizes the airy openness of top down motoring embracing the elements and creating a stunning social environment. A number of features first seen on the 100EX, the experimental convertible shown by Rolls Royce in 2004 have been engineered into this car. At the core of the Phantom Drophead Coupé is an advanced aluminum chassis perhaps the single most significant component in delivering the marque's legendary refinement.
The power is supplied by the same 6.75L naturally aspirated V12 engine found in the Phantom Sedan giving brisk performance and a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds. Gas mileage is rated at 11 MPG city and 18 highway. Hand built in Goodwin, England and price from $400,012.00 this is a car for a select few.
