Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe 2007

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe was launched in Europe at the Geneva Motor Show 2007. The two door, four seat convertible is a less formal interpretation of classic Rolls-Royce design than its four door stable mate, the Phantom. Using the lightweight rigidity of an all aluminium spaceframe, it marries modern technology to a sleek, streamlined convertible body.

Hand built using the finest quality materials to the exacting standards of Rolls-Royce, the new Phantom Drophead Coupe is exciting customers around the world. Speaking ahead of the Geneva Show, Graeme Grieve, Sales and Marketing Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Car, said, "the reaction to the Drophead Coupe has been phenomenal. This year's production has already been allocated and there are currently only a few build slots left in 2008. We are delighted that more than half of the orders are from customers who have never owned a Rolls-Royce before, so the new model is significantly expanding the appeal of our products."

Some special design features of the Phantom Drophead Coupe are:

-Customers can specify a brushed steel bonnet and rear teak deck. The bonnet is machine brushed before being hand finished to ensure a uniform grain throughout.

- The Phantom Drophead Coupe is based on an advanced aluminium spaceframe. Lightweight and exceptionally strong, it requires 120 metres of hand welding.

- Luggage is housed within a picnic boot, a split tail compartment that opens in two parts giving easy access to 315 litres of space. The lower tailgate provides a confortable seating platform for two adults when lowered.

-The fabric hood is the largest of any modern convertible car and uses five layers of material to insulate the interior.

- Power is supplied by a 6.75 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine giving brisk performance and a 0 to 60 mph (96 kph) time of 5,7 seconds. The engine develops 452 hp at 5350 rpm and maximum torque 72 Nm at 3500 rpm. transmission is ZF 6 speeds.

Dimensions: length 560 cm, width 198 cm, height 158 cm, wheelbase 332 cm, weight unladen 2620 kg.

Factory claimed top speed 240 kph or 149 mph (governed), 0 to 100 kph in 5,9 seconds.
