A YACHT FOR THE HIGHWAY

Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe

The Phantom Drophead Coupé is the most relaxed incarnation of the Phantom, built for leisurely days gliding through the countryside more than for formal occasions. The delicately tapered tail section and the slight backward curve of the grille are small design cues that nevertheless reveal an informal, self-effacing character.

The nautical feel of the vehicle is conveyed through such delicate touches as the natural teak rear decking. The soothing refinement provided by the eight-speed transmission and four-cornered air suspension completes the impression of sailing, rather than motoring, through the countryside.

Driving and being driven both have their advantages in the Drophead Coupé. For those who wish to take the wheel, the lightweight composition of the aluminium space frame and the finely tuned steering make for superb handling. Moreover, the 435bhp placed at your disposal by the 6.75-litre V12 engine is more than capable of taking you to the electronically limited speed of 149mph without a murmur of complaint.

Travelling in this convertible as a passenger is just as stirring. The sight and touch of exquisitely prepared full-grain leather, natural wood veneers and chrome detailing is pleasing in itself, and even more so when accompanied by the gentle flow of fresh air and an uninterrupted view of sunny skies. If, however, the weather takes a turn for the worse, the roof is capable of protecting the four occupants from the elements in 25 seconds. Once raised, the five layers of material which comprise the roof provide a shelter as spacious, warm and well-ventilated as those found in Phantom hard-top models.

As well as driving pleasure, the Phantom Drophead Coupé also delivers practicality, convenience and safety. At 220.9 inches long, the vehicle is able to offer a versatile and roomy boot for weekend luggage or sporting equipment whilst not compromising on legroom or kneeroom. The large and highly flexible rear-hinged coach doors permit easy and dignified access with a minimum of physical strain.

The coach doors, however, have another purpose. In contrast to conventional front-hinged doors, they allow the A-pillar and windscreen surround to be an extension of the car’s strong aluminium frame. The result is the sturdiest and most rigid chassis to be found on any current convertible.

The chassis offers excellent stability and roll resistance as well as sound protection for the occupants in the event of a collision. The structural integrity of the Drophead Coupé is supplemented by a plethora of advanced safety equipment, including an intelligent camera system that can prove extremely useful when exiting a junction or manoeuvring.
