The 2012 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe convertible is an auto enthusiast's dream, as it is highly customizable. If you can think of a feature, Rolls-Royce can include it. That's if, of course, you can't find choices you're happy with in the luxury auto brand's standard choices, including: twelve unique choices of leather seating, Spirit of Ecstasy-stitched headrests, six standard wood veneers from which to choose, (including Elm Cluster, Ash Burr, Mahogany Flare, Rosewood, Brown Oak, and Piano Black), a range of wheel choices, a range of drink cabinets, alternate steering wheels, a range of headliners, and all of today's most current technologies.
This convertible coupe is luxurious both inside and out. Its power-operated roof, for example, is made up of five layers of materials, including cashmere, which make it both luxurious and quiet as it's raised and lowered.
The 2012 Rolls-Royce Phantom is very powerful. It features a six-speed automatic transmission and delivers power to its rear wheels due to a 6.75-liter V12 engine that produces 453 horsepower and 531 lb.-ft. of torque, sprinting from zero-to-sixty in only 5.7 seconds, despite its hefty three-ton weight.
Though it hasn't been officially tested by the IIHS due to its low production numbers, this Phantom does include rather impressive safety features such as: Parking sensors, a largely steel-built body, several airbags, and all the most current safety technology features (like stability and traction control). Front and rear cameras are an add-on option.
This luxury convertible coupe is stylish! A less formal, more relaxed variant of the Phantom, its design is reminiscent of a yacht, as it asks its drivers and passengers to take some time to feel at ease.
The Phantom is luxury UK auto brand Rolls-Royce's top-of-the line vehicle, so it's also on the rather pricey end. The 2012 Phantom Drophead Coupe has a starting price around $450,000 for the base model, though this can quickly increase with added customizations and options.
