Rolls-Royce is known worldwide for an exclusive luxury and style that can provide a dramatic entrance for any occasion. Its most recent model on the production line is the Phantom.
Rolls-Royce began in 1904 as a joint venture by Charles S. Rolls and Henry Royce. From the beginning, this exclusive British line of cars was meant to embody exceptional quality and luxury. According to those at Rolls-Royce, www.rolls-royce.com, their first collaboration, the Silver Ghost, was often considered to be the best car in the world in 1906. Many dedicated car enthusiasts believe the same can still be said of all Rolls-Royce models in production today.
While Rolls-Royce is owned by the BMW Group today, it hasn't lost any of its prestige or quality. It remains an exclusive brand and its models are produced only in limited quantities. One of its most newest models, and the only one in production as of 2005, is the Phantom, which is gaining a considerable following.
The Phantom is the only Rolls-Royce being produced as of 2005. It has many of the classic features of the previous models, like the commanding body shape and size and the elegant grill. The lines along the body are smoother and more fitted for the new millennium than the sharper boxier lines of older Rolls-Royces, and Bob Schulties of About.com, cars.about.com, says that the Phantom provides the ultimate arrival for any of those riding in it.
Powering this posh ride is the BMW V12 engine, giving it 453 horsepower. The interior is as regal as the exterior. Though Rolls-Royce is a remarkable brand, it has its drawbacks. Those at Edmunds, www.edmunds.com. report that a few of these include a lack of some high-tech features and confusing secondary controls.
