We are delighted that more than half of the orders are from customers who have never owned a Rolls-Royce before, so the new model is significantly expanding the appeal of our products.”
Some of the special design features of the Phantom Drophead Coupé are:
•Customers can specify a brushed steel bonnet and rear teak deck. The bonnet is machine brushed before being hand finished to ensure a uniform grain throughout.
•The Phantom Drophead Coupé is based on an advanced aluminium spaceframe. Lightweight and exceptionally strong, it requires over 120 metres of hand-welding.
•Luggage is housed within a picnic boot, a split tail compartment that opens in two parts giving easy access to 315 litres of space. The lower tailgate provides a comfortable seating platform for two adults when lowered.
•The fabric hood is the largest of any modern convertible car and uses five layers of material to insulate the interior.
•Power is supplied by a 6.75 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine giving brisk performance and a 0-60mph time of 5.7 seconds.
