We first learned about the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe towards the end of last year, we thought that we would revisit this oversized convertible car with a review roundup and what price you will have to pay to become the proud owner of one.
Let us give the Phantom Drophead Coupe a little introduction first; under the hood is a 6.8-liter 48-valve V-12 engine pumping out 453-hp — that’s enough to propel the big lump to 60 in just 5.5 seconds, with a top speed of 148mph.
P.J. O’ROURKE from Car and Driver reviewed the car back in October 2009. The writer reports that although the car is swell, it is not perfect — although he does add that Rolls-Royce has managed to put some fun in the model.
The Car Connection also spent some time with the Phantom Drophead Coupe, even before they get going you know that they have fallen in love with the vehicle by saying that it is the ‘epitome of luxury motoring.” The reviewer then explains that the prestige carmaker has stuck to its heritage and tradition — this is evident with their attention to the fine details.
Our final review comes from Edmunds; where they offer pros and cons of the vehicle. The pros are that it is fit for royalty and handles well for a convertible. However, its size makes it difficult to drive on smaller streets.
The biggest issue has to be its price – $443,000 onwards is a huge price to pay. We can see oil baron’s or rappers going for this one — or sports stars.
