2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom coupe

The Coupé is the most driver-orientated model in the Phantom line. A number of subtle but significant modifications including its elegant, sleek and rakish body have been made that change its character. It is noticeably more dynamic, whilst still offering incredible levels of comfort - a balance not easily achieved in this 5.6 metre-long car.

In the engine bay resides a 6.75-litre V12 engine developing 338 kW (460 hp) of power and 720 Nm (531lb-ft) of torque. Performance is a brisk 5.8 seconds for the 0 - 100 km/h sprint - an achievement in itself given the vehicle's kerb weight of over 2.5 tonnes.

On the inside, an exquisite interior, hand-built using the finest materials, supremely comfortable and equipped with a studio-quality sound system, makes the Phantom Coupé the perfect car for all-day driving. Clean and contemporary, the cabin uses traditional materials in a modern way to create a tactile and visual feast: driver and passengers touch only leather, wood or chrome.
