KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen - Updated Date: 8/3/2012


It's hard to envision an automobile more extravagant than the 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom. When it comes to spare-no-expense production vehicles, this massive British luxury car ranks among the world's elite. Perched on top of the global automotive pyramid, Rolls-Royce vehicles are exclusive to begin with, and the Phantom is the brand's costliest. At $400,000 and up, these vehicles are nearly twice the median price of a new home. The Phantom was introduced in 2003 and has been revised for 2013 with sleeker looks, more technology and a new name: The Phantom Series II. The handmade vehicle is available as a 4- or 5-seat sedan, a 4-seat coupe and a 4-seat convertible. For those who want to travel even larger, there is the Extended Wheelbase version of the sedan.

You'll Like This Car If...

Want to show the world that you have enormous wealth and a craving for the most comfortable means of motoring? Driving or – more likely – being chauffeured in a Rolls-Royce Phantom is all the statement you need.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The 2013 Phantom is an enormous vehicle to pilot, and not the most rewarding one at that, especially in sedan form. In that regard, the smaller and less-expensive Rolls-Royce Ghost is sleeker and has a more powerful engine.

What's New for 2013

For 2013, the Rolls-Royce Phantom receives minor exterior changes that include a sleeker fascia with LED headlamps, upgraded technology with a larger center display and navigation software, and an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is among the few cars in which you're just as likely to find the owner in the rear seat as the driver's seat. Whether the person piloting this immense vehicle is the owner or a hired hand, he or she will be treated to an extremely hushed, comfortable ride. Serenity is the adjective of choice here. With a stated zero-to-60-mph time of under 6 seconds, the Phantom's massive V12 engine easily hustles the equally enormous car with aplomb, but speed is not the objective here. Even with the steering wheel's "S" button engaged to stiffen the suspension and adjust the throttle response, the 2013 Phantom feels more phantom than devil – which is the whole point.

Favorite Features

REAR-HINGED DOORS
Entering or exiting the rear seat of the Rolls-Royce Phantom sedan is an elegant affair thanks to rear-hinged doors that open wide. In sedans the rear passenger doors close automatically with the touch of a button, while coupes and convertibles allow driver and passenger a similarly grand entrance – or exit – with rear-hinged doors.

RETRACTING HOOD ORNAMENT
There are a lot of classy things about a Rolls-Royce Phantom, but among the nicest touches is the famed Spirit of Ecstasy ornament that flies over every hood. These are valuable commodities to be sure, so when the car is not in use the ornament can be automatically retracted, which just looks slick.
