Find a Car
You have to admire the Phantom, even though it�s as practical as a top hat. The quintessential Rolls-Royce, it defines automotive luxury, almost to a fault. With a classic waterfall grille and a bulging �Spirit Of Ecstasy� hood ornament, it deliberately calls to mind the spirit of 1920s excess, a time that marked the Rolls brand�s heyday. At 20 feet long, bearing 6,000 pounds of reinforced steel, it�s essentially the only car on the market (except for maybe the Bentley Mulsanne) that�s made exclusively to be driven by a chauffeur. It�s got a 12-cylinder engine that offers plenty of power, and is maneuverable enough; if the Phantom were a boat, it would be the sleekest on the market. As a car, it lumbers. But if you want to really experience the Phantom, you have to sit in the backseat, a palatial spread of plush wool carpeting, �starlight headliner� ceiling ornaments, and enough leather accents to line a king�s coffin.
