2006 Rolls-Royce Phantom Base 4dr Sedan (6.7L 12cyl 6A)


Review

I love this car. I'm usually not into big cars, in fact I've never owned a car much bigger than a BMW 3-Series until this thing. Driving it makes you feel so prestigious and good. For a big car, it turns pretty quickly and can turn pretty sharp. It won't take the corners like a Porsche, but I've never driven anything this big that handles this well. Sit in the backseat an no one will know you're there. There's a big piece of metal to hide your face. Floor it all the way and you will realize that you can still have a conversation at normal volume. There is hardly any noise in the cockpit and no vibrations at all. This car has no body roll ethier. The backseat is big enough to store a small car in.


Favorite Features

The lack of noise and vibration that will be very hard to find in any car. The way it turns, handles, espsically for a car this size. Its steering is quick and will you give you confidence in turns. The looks it gets from everyone. The HUGE backseat wich is literally big enough to store a old VW bug.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the gas mileage. I shouldn't complain though, I knew the horrible mpg before I bought it. iDrive is like a BMW's but is somehow even more complicated. I'm usually good at figuring stuff out, but It took me over 2 hours to figure this thing out.

Review

When I entered the Rolls Royce dealership in San Francisco I just had to have it. I took it for a spin, came back, and paid cash. I love the looks that I get when I ride through the Bay Area.


Favorite Features

Comfort and design.

Review

The Rolls-Royce Phantom exceeded my high expectations. If given the opportunity, go drive this phenom at your nearist dealer. Not only are you buying the car, you are buying the dealership.


Favorite Features

Though a large vehicle, it moves like a Lexus LS 430.


Suggested Improvements

None

2006 Rolls-Royce Phantom Base 4dr Sedan (6.7L 12cyl 6A)


Review

Upon test driving the Rolls Royce Phantom, I must say it has remarkably better handling than the Maybach 57. The car is nimble and responsive, although power is subdued for enhanced comfort. The greatest phenomenon upon my short drive is the remarkable handling of the car; the chassis mitigates its weight and bulk, providing the driver and the passengers with remarkable comfort and little body roll even in fast sharp corners. Upon intense acceleration and at high speeds, there is absolutely no noise in the cockpit and absolutely no vibration. The lack of vibration is thanks to a remarkable dual floor system, so the floor is not connected to the chassis. This is a great car.


Favorite Features

The Phantom features an excellent audio system, suitable for playing opera, classical, and jazz (the types of music that require the best audio systems). The windows are all double-paned glass, insulating passengers from all possible sources of noise. The carpets are fit for kings.


Suggested Improvements

The "iDrive" controller in the Phantom, similiar to that in the BMW is even more difficult to use. .

Suggested Improvements

The "iDrive" controller in the Phantom, similiar to that in the BMW is even more difficult to use. The front seats could be more supportive upon cornering for owner-drivers. the instrument cluster should have a normal tachometer on the right instead of a power reserve, normally found on wristwatches.
