Stratton Motor Company are proud to offer this amazing 2005 Rolls Royce Phantom.
Rolls-Royce may be owned by BMW, but the Phantom is both individual and feels every inch the pinnacle of British-built luxury. Its appearance is certainly imposing – indeed it’s too heavy-handed for some – but it travels with an unmatched elegance and style.
If you want the best car in the world – and can afford it – we couldn’t argue against choosing a Phantom
Larger cars tend to be safer than smaller cars, thanks to the laws of physics, but the Phantom also comes with eight airbags, a tyre pressure sensor, stability control and traction control plus cornering brake control.
The rear passenger compartment offers acres of room for three to relax and stretch out, while the decent boot with its 460 litre capacity will swallow a few cases.
The seats and steering column are electrically adjustable (naturally) and the cars height offers a great view of the road ahead. Few sights offer a better feelgood factor than seeing the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ mascot on top of the radiator grille. The right balance of tradition and modernity has been struck with the interior.
A BMW iDrive-style dial is concealed in a storage compartment and the satellite navigation screen hides behind a panel on the dashboard until required. However, rear visibility is compromised by the thick pillars.
The Rolls-Royce travels in near silence. Even the ventilation fans are barely noticeable when they’re bringing the interior of the car up to the desired temperature on a chilly morning. The engine is only heard when kicking down a few gears to overtake and the suspension smothers virtually every bump any road could throw at it. The interior is exceptionally spacious and can seat five.
The rear doors (hinged at the rear) can be closed from the inside at the push of a button, while the wool carpets are over an inch thick.
It might share its V12 configuration with the top BMW 7-Series, but the Phantom’s displacement of 6.7 litres (at 6749cc it’s just a cubic centimetre less than the old Rolls-Royce V8 engines built at Crewe) puts distance between the two engines. Maximum power of 453bhp and 531lb-ft of torque of means the Phantom always feels relaxed with plenty in reserve if necessary.
A six-speed automatic transmission is offered with a steering column-mounted selector. If required, the Phantom will sprint from 0-60mph in a mere 5.7 seconds, but maximum enjoyment is derived from being in the car as it wafts along in silence, whether driving or as a passenger.
The Phantom is a heavy car with more length, width and height to contend with than most. But it has been engineered to the highest possible standards and never feels as big as it actually is once on the open road. The thin steering wheel turns the Phantom with surprising precision and while the character of the motor car does not encourage the driver to test its ability to tackle twisty roads, it feels willing and able when pushed.
There is more body roll than in many lower, less expensive, luxury saloons, but the sacrifice in composure from sudden direction changes is worth the extra comfort. It comes with air suspension for a super-smooth ride as well as electronic damper control.
