Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé – W55th Street, NYC

September 8th, 2010 by Stu

As I watched curiously at the endless flow of slack-jawed mid-town tourists pointing and oohing and snapping camera phone pictures, it became immediately apparent that you don’t have to be an enthusiast to know you’re in the presence of automotive greatness. Say hello to the Phantom Drophead Coupe, a hand-built, $443,000, 5,886 pound, 18.4 foot tribute to all that is holy in the world of luxury motoring. Just like the 4-door Phantom, Drophead Coupé combines features of the luxuriant 1930s Art Deco with cold 21st century. The eye-catching stainless steel bonnet shields a massive 6.7L V12 capable of propelling the marine-nautical themed land yacht to 60 MPH in a mere 5.6 seconds. Top speed is governed at 150 MPH, which is not really an issue considering how good this thing looks while moving slowly.
