Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe: The Latest Car of Coupe Model

Rolls-Royce covered off its latest coupe version, Rolls-Royce Phantom coupe in the Geneva Motor Show 2008. The car was officially launched in February 26 at a dinner hosted by Rolls Royce Company. Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe is the first two-door Coupe model car since 1960. Designed by Ian Cameron, Phantom Coupe resembles a stylish look and speed. The car has more speed than Phantom saloon or drophead.

Financial Times reported:

BMW’s Rolls-Royce division will take the wraps off its coupe version of the Phantom luxury car – the first two-door coupe model it has built since the late 1960s. Much more sporting than the Phantom saloon or drophead, it will be priced near the rest of the range, at close to £290,000 in the UK. The world must wait until the next Geneva show for one of the most important cars Rolls-Royce has ever built – a so-called “baby” model based on BMW’s 7-Series.

I think, Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe will bring about a huge success for Rolls-Royce. The car uses V12 engine. The headlights include hundreds of small LED lights which make the car more attractive to look at. The car has already received early bookings from the customers. The company wants to have two third of the total customers new to the Rolls-Royce brand.
