The newest Rolls Royce Phantom

Recommended Posts

Resale for the old ones headed further into the toilet.

They are already in the toilet, guess they are being flushed now.

Not meaning to de-rail, but is the resale on the Phantoms really that bad? I mean, they drop, but they seem to do better than anything else at that level, like a Maybach, Arnage / Mulsanne, even the S600/65, BMWs, etc...

I cant stand the dude talking poppycock for 15 minutes about cars lines. I want to make this same video with new honest audio track.

"So here we have a new phantom, which is basicly same as the old 2005 one. I mean our designers had briefing o use words like majestic, cocky and fairy dust every sentence but other than that it is the same exact car. Here is this line down the side, it might be that we fiddled with that but I cant recall how. Here is another sideline, again maybe same that the old car had, not sure but lets say, majestic? Didn't really need to do anything to headlights nor tails so that's great. As you see, same exact wheels, we tried to paint them other color but at the end did not really work so went back straight to earlier. This front and sideline, we tried to make it as boxy as it can be so I would say that it's maybe 4% more boxy than it was before? Which is quite magical if we think that it already was 378% boxy before. Here's some mirrors, worked great before, so used them again. Roof line comes nicely down our designers were drunk and throw some clay on top of the old rear window so now we have it bit more tilted, was accident really...."

I'm waiting on new Bentley to come out so I can buy a 2012 facelift for a deal...

And waiting on this Rolls to come out to get another Phantom or Ghost for even more of a deal...

I have a 2010 Drophead I bought new in Jan 11, has 3700 miles on it now. Drives like a relic. But looks gre at, I drive it in Beverly Hills for dinners, lunch’s. And meetings. I’ve taken it to Vegas 2X which accounts for I’d guess 40% of the total miles driven on it. After 30 miles I’m ready to take a Grayhound Bus. It’s a motor coach for errands in BH where’s there’s wide streets & parking.

 

Prior to that I had 2 Phantoms-1 for Vegas & one for LA. They were about the same.

 

This past 2 years I leased a Bentley Mulssian each year, 12 month deals. Both cars were 2016’s. Sorry I can’t spell th3 name right, lol. Anyways m6 point is I took them both to Vegas a few times and NorCal and they drove GREAT!!

 

Not the presence of the big RR’s.

 

The ghost, wraith(drives the best imo) or dawn. All are nice cars and drive better than the big RR’s but lack presence.

 

I’m very excited about the Phantom 8. I made the mistake of buying a phantom in 04 when they first came out. This time I’m waiting a year and then getting a new Phantom 8. I hope it drives better.

 

I’ve owned 3 other Bentley’s all of which were “drivers” cars Connential, Arnage red label and lastly a Azure that looked great but sucked, it wasn’t a drivers car, so 2 of 3 on the older cars. Too lazy to edit.

 

 

I’m going to drive the new Phantom soon, I’ll report.

 

I have more miles in RR’s and Bentley than anything else, except my vw van!!

 

 

Best
