Rolls Royce Phantom sedan 2006
· The ultimate in long distance luxury,
· Stately transportation at its most civilized,
· An automobile with understated presence,
· Makes you look (very) important.
I stepped into the driver’s seat and imagined that I was James, the chauffeur. I was tempted to murmur “The Mission, James,” then reality sank in. I was the driver, seated in a luxurious, comfortable driver’s armchair with yards of hood in front of me, adorned with the Rolls Royce emblem. With the windows closed and the magnificent stereo off, the world was far away. I was serene, completely serene, wrapped in unimaginable luxury. For an hour or so, I felt like a Captain of Industry or a Prime Minister, or a man of destiny. The 2006 Phantom is the sixth generation of the breed, with all mechanical components and onboard technology supplied by BMW, who now own the marque. A 453-hp 6.8-liter V-12 powers the behemoth and is said to be able to propel it from 0 to 60 in under 6 seconds. Alas, I didn’t have a road to try this. Aluminum space-frame construction makes the car much lighter and nimbler, if one can apply that word to a Rolls. Just the appearance of the Phantom with its distinctive, front grill and understated lines with a rather square rear end proclaims its size, as do the 21-inch wheels. The cabin is completely luxurious, leather furnished, and adorned with beautifully finished wood trim, as only Rolls can do it. Front seats are capable of infinite adjustment, the controls being in the center console. The two seats in the rear are utterly luxurious, accessed through rear doors that open from the front, making entry and exit easy in ball gowns. And yes, Josephine, there are umbrellas at your service stowed away in both rear doors!
In traffic, you waft along with almost no sound from the engine, the gear changes by the 6-speed automatic almost imperceptible. One of the merits of the Phantom is that it is easy to drive provided you watch the size. Just put it in drive (or reverse) and go. This is very much a majestic automobile, designed for leisured progression or an imposing, but understated, arrival at a formal event. The day-to-day performance reflects this. The best way to describe your progress is as “stately”. You feel detached from the day-to-day world, even traffic jams, in your own automotive world. This is all very well, but what about country roads and more twisty highways? I took the car though some quite windy hills and it performed well without getting excited. Cornering is very controlled, but clearly this is not a car for hairpins, although it will cope with them. On my favorite deserted straight, the acceleration was smooth, but did not get sprightly until the revs were pretty high. The car is perfectly happy at high speeds, but that’s really not its métier. Where it excels is on long journeys, where you and your companions will travel as if in your living room. All the appointments are world class, the comfort of everything carefully thought out, and the trunk is enormous, as if the Rolls is used to carrying the contents of a country house along with it. There are few cars on the road as lovely as the Phantom, and the price reflects this.
Few people will own a Phantom, but those who do will obviously be very affluent, but also have a strong sense of the right things in life. This is an automobile for important people, for individuals of power, or couples who live active and somewhat formal social lives. It can, of course, double as a daily driver, but, in today’s more
