2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe
An all-new model for 2009, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe is the first new 2-door hardtop model from the ultra-luxury automaker in more than three decades. Essentially a production version of the EX101 concept car shown at the 2006 Geneva Auto Show, the 2009 model is powered by a 6.75-liter V-12 engine producing 453 hp. The interior delivers yards of soft leather, woolen carpets and rich wood trim; the large coup_ has been tuned for decidedly sportier clientele. Compared to the soft-top Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, the Phantom Coupe features firmer shocks, thicker roll bars, and a recalibrated steering system tuned to deliver more road feel to the driver.
