2006 Rolls Royce Phantom
The Rolls-Royce has an overwhelming edge over the Mercedes product.
It's assuredly, with only a faint tip of the hat to Ferrari, the
most famous brand of automobile in the world. It's doubtful, on the
other hand, that even 1% of the Canadian population would have even
the remotest clue what a Maybach is. Throw in a body style that
remains faithful to the Rollers of the past, that cozy-as-a-fire
interior and a ride that is literally like wafting along on a cloud
and it becomes obvious why Phantom ownership, even to the
mega-rich, is an experience to be savored.
For consignment a low mileage 2006 Rolls Royce Phantom. With a mere
35,204 original miles clocked on it, now presenting as a like new
motorcar, and piles on the luxury and size doing so. This model
year takes on a futuristic simplified look all the while offering
up performance that no one would expect a car of such girth and
size to even be able to think of performing. Our example has a
gorgeous interior, sexy exterior color and of course the iconic
grille for the front leading the way and announcing your arrival
A luxurious freight train would best describe this car. With its
boxy design front end with smaller aero designed head lighting, and
a round deep embedded signal running light just below, these pale
in comparison to the big vertically ribbed grille and "radiator"
surround, complete with the flying lady hood ornament. The car is
actually simply designed with little to no embellishments, just
tasteful shiny window trimmings, door handles and badging. Part of
the 260 hours it takes to build one of these liners, was put into
perfectly fitting steel sides and panels, then this was all bathed
in Silver Sand Metallic Paint which is in excellent condition. A
touching each other pair of sculpted door handles share the B
pillar as their latching point, and offer up plenty of legroom for
all, but particularly the rear seat occupants. A sunroof is within
the top and in back a massive trunk that will hold all your
trinkets and goodies you obtain on your next trip. Big 21 inch
chrome wheels are wrapped in very nice rubber.
A very simply designed interior but with many surfaces that
correspond with each other to create an environment fit for a king
is seen inside the passenger compartment. Seashell, (off white),
leather makes up the door panels, covers the seats, and the lower
part of the dash. Beautiful tuck and roll insert with smooth
bolsters and some black piping added in. Each interior is custom
made to order and contains at least 15 to 18 different hides of
various textures to make up the front and rear seating. Speaking of
the rear bench there is plenty of room for the rear passengers
unless your job is to guard the "round mound of rebound" in the
paint, you too will have plenty of legroom. Sitting in this
wonderful luxurious leather seating, we can take a moment to gaze
at the hand crafted dash made from any wood the customer desires.
Our example utilizes several exotic tree woods, which have been
laminated and built up to be eventually lacquered and polished to
an ever present shine. This wood accenting can be seen peppering
the entire interior, but the major concentration of it is on the
dash. Beautiful clean gauges, round knobs and various levers are
covered in the English Walnut Burl, and is even seen making an
appearance on the spokes of the steering wheel. Chromed eyeball
shaped AC/heat vents are inserted and all power and climate
controls are well within reach of the passenger or driver. Charcoal
gray Wilton carpeting is on all the floors, and I just want to
remove my Wallies and crinkle my toes in this wonderful padded
surface! Noted, a nice secret compartment is within the padded
console and it houses the power controls for the seats mirrors and
windows. Several display screens are available for the rear
passengers and are embedded within the backs of the front buckets.
As well, a pullout refrigerator drawer that magically appears from
under the midsection of the rear bench. I'll have sparkling water
please me luv!
Under the long bonnet is a 6.75 Liter V12 engine that can pump out
453 horses. It sports EFI and a 6-speed automatic transmission on
the back. The rear axle weighs in at 3.46 ratio. You are gazing
into an engine bay that shows no corrosion and very little dirt or
patina. It's excellent shall we say.
A stainless steel exhaust snakes its way rearward from the V12 and
travels through many different rust free surfaces on its way to a
dual rear exit. Very sound structurally, and cast aluminum
suspension which includes fully independent type with air struts on
all 4 corners. Power disc brakes are also on all around.
Don't be fooled by this car and its size, it is every bit as nimble
as your expensive sports car, and then some. On the test track she
accelerated with ease and can easily reach over 135mph and stay
there all day if needed, traffic conditions permitting. Handling is
like its on rails, and save for the angst it may cause and some
sweating for the rear passengers whilst doing so, this car can take
last second evasive action and not even break a sweat. It also
stops on a silver dollar, which you can then pick up and place it
on the engine just to check how smooth that V12 idles and runs. All
functions were in working order, and this car is a knockout.
For those who can shell out the pounds to own one, it is definitely
worth it. What appears to be a car your grandmother would drive,
can quickly change your mind with its performance, handling and
acceleration. Plus you'll have plenty of luxury to surround
yourself in, all in handmade craftsmanship fashion. That's what you
are paying for.
