2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase Review

Hi! I’m Mike Hanley with Cars.com and I’m here with the Rolls Royce Phantom

Extended Wheelbase model. It’s an ultra luxury Sedan that makes other luxury cars like

even the Mercedes Benz S class look cheap because it starts at half a million dollars

almost and so let’s take a look at what this model has to offer and why it costs so much.

Rolls Royce calls this model a 2000 half a year because there have been some changes to

the outside. They have made this grille one piece now. One of the unique features you

can get on the Phantom and other Rolls Royce models is this powered spirit of ecstasy

cord ornament which can motor up and down. And as you come around to the side of the

car, you can see it comes with these massive 21-inch wheels but even though they are

that big, they don’t look out of proportion to this car because of the overall size of it. It

stretches to about 20 feet in length.

One thing that separates the Phantom from your mainstream luxury models like an S

class is that the car is almost completely hand assembled. It takes about 19 days to build

one of these cars and the body is assembled by hand and the 6.75 liter V12 engine is hand

built. It makes 453 horsepower and 531 pounds feet of torque and it lets this extended

wheelbase within go from zero to 60 in just under six seconds and that’s pretty quick for

a car that weighs about 5500 pounds.

Another thing that separates the Phantom from your everyday luxury car is that the

interior can be completely customized to the buyer’s taste and from the leather trim you

see here to wood trim on the dash. Now this mile doesn’t have what it has a piano black

finish but you can get various wood finishes and they can also have inlays on them as

well. One thing that maybe familiar to you if you’ve been looking at regular luxury cars

like BMWs is this control knob here now. Rolls Royce has a system that’s similar to

BMW’s iDrive and this knob is used to control various entertainment features in the car.

Now the back of the extended wheel based model as you can see has tons of legroom and

it also has this power door closing feature. So you don’t have to reach out and grab the

door. It just shuts automatically for you.
