For a three-ton sofa-tanker, the Rolls-Royce Phantom sedan
is surprisingly nimble. So when the automaker says the new coupe
is the most athletic Phantom yet, the words aren't as empty as they may seem. With the same 6.75-liter, 453-horsepower V12 found in the sedan and convertible
, the coupe allegedly will gallop to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. Suspension enhancements and a response-quickening sport button figure to play significant roles in whatever increased athleticism is delivered. The Phantom Coupe
may very well start above $400,000 when it begins arriving later in 2008. iPod connectivity is available.
