Phantom Coupé

The most driver-orientated model in the Phantom family, the latest expression of Phantom Coupé is a sleek and seductive combination of classic proportions, powerful presence and breathtaking detailing. Inspired by the Phantom II Continental of the 1930s, the Phantom Coupé is a celebration of sporting style and glamour.

 

INDULGE YOURSELF

 

"The interior invites you to step into another world."

Alan Sheppard, Head of Interior Design.

 

Behind the generous coach doors you will find a calm interior that makes any journey as rewarding for the passengers as the driver. Featuring high-gloss veneers, wide expanses of soft full-grain leather and chrome fittings, it is a pleasure to be in.

 

THE PROMISE OF POTENTIAL

 

The promise of effortless performance implied by the car's fluid lines is delivered on as soon as you sit in the driver's seat. The thicker rimmed steering wheel offers greater grip suited to the character of the car. You can sense Phantom Coupé's sporting nature even when it is not in motion.

 

NO DETAIL IS OVERLOOKED

 

The hand-stitched leatherwork takes over two weeks to complete, with nine hides required for each interior. Pre-shrunk and drum-dyed so the colour permeates right through; the soft, supple full-grain leather won't squeak or crack. Choose from a wide range of mono and contrast leather colour combinations.

 

THE PERFECT SETTING

 

Phantom Drophead Coupé features a new three-flute seat design in both the front and rear seats, offering a modern feel to the interior. You can also choose to personalise the seats further with contrast stitching, piping and embroidery.

 

A NATURAL BEAUTY

 

"I look for burrs and complex grains that add interest," says Dan Austin, Veneer Specialist.

 

Each set of veneers comes from a single tree, creating a simple, seamless flow from facia to rear compartment. Select from classic woods like Walnut or Elm or choose straight-grained Malabar or Dark Wenge for a more contemporary ambience. Each piece is hand-polished to create a deep flawless shine.

 

TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED AROUND YOU

 

The newly updated central console presents everything within easy view and reach so you can concentrate on driving. As well as the clear 8.8" Control Centre Display, the new buttons on the console act as functional bookmarks for effortless operation. You have the option to choose a full metal facia or to match it to the veneers that run through the rest of the interior. yacht."

 

A UNIQUE PRESENCE

 

Phantom Coupé's sporting credentials are evident at first glance - the powerful profile and low-slung carriage give an instant impression of strength. The purposeful look is made more powerful by the 21" alloy wheels and visible exhausts. Phantom's driving dynamics are underlined visually by a Coupé body style. As well as changes to the powertrain and introduction of a new 8-speed gearbox, the design adds glamour to the outstanding drivability inherent in all our cars.

 

A STRIKINGLY MODERN LOOK

 

The new fully LED front light clusters light up as soon as the engine is started, giving Phantom Coupé a unique look that is instantly recognisable by day or night. The lights clusters have a glowing day light running bar through the centre of the headlight, with dipped and high beam functions illuminating the top and bottom sections.

 

LOOKS THAT COMPEL

 

To further amplify the sporting nature of Phantom Coupé, the iconic Rolls-Royce grille has had a subtle re-design. Available with a brushed stainless steel outer to complement the optional brushed steel bonnet and A-Frame windscreen surround, the outer grille can now also be colour-matched to perfectly complement the body colour. This detail accentuates the length of the bonnet and emphasises Phantom Coupé's sleek design.

 

DESIGN WITHOUT COMPROMISE

 

You can choose from 12 different wheels, five designs with up to three finishes, each with their own special character. All our wheels feature our unique self-righting wheel centres that always display the Rolls-Royce monogram the right way up. It's typical of the attention we give to the smallest details that make our cars so special.

 

A UNIQUE DRIVING EXPERIENCE

 

Phantom Coupé has a full complement of advanced technology both under the bonnet and in the interior of the car. Everything is designed to work in unison. The result is fingertip control and a dynamic connection with the road, making driving an effortless pleasure.

 

EFFORTLESS POWER

 

The new 8-speed gearbox offers reduced CO² emissions with improved fuel consumption. The combination of engine and gearbox means pressing the accelerator gives you a feeling of smooth, endless acceleration from standing or at speed.

 

POWER IN RESERVE

 

Phantom Coupé offers a spirited drive, made more invigorating by engaging the 'S' button. This activates a gearbox programme that holds each gear longer, which increases the rate of acceleration. The shorter wheelbase and agile chassis, combined with the specially tuned suspension, give a more dynamic ride without compromising comfort. To complement this further, the power steering has been tuned to give you more direct feedback from the road.

 

ESSENTIAL STRENGTH

 

Phantom Coupé's advanced aluminium spaceframe is based on the same lightweight technology as our signature Phantom. Hand-welded from over 500 separate parts, with over 100 metres of weld. Incredibly light but strong, it is both stiff and dynamic. When combined with the state-of-the art suspension technologies and new rear differential, it creates the air-cushioned 'magic carpet ride' that is unique to Rolls-Royce.

 

INSPIRED PERFORMANCE

 

The delivery of power from the direct-injection V12 Engine is impressive. At 70mph over 90% of the power is available in reserve, making for effortless acceleration.

 

The new 8-speed gearbox offers a greater choice of gears and reduced CO2 emissions with improved fuel consumption. The two additional gears accentuate the feeling of smooth, endless acceleration when you press the accelerator from standing or at speed.

 

"A thoroughbred through and through, with tight proportions and dynamic intent."
