Auto Reviews2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom, M.S.R.P $380,000
The 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom is a car like St. Peter's Basilica is a church. Or the Titanic was a boat. Or a five-tiered wedding cake is a dessert. In other words, owning a Rolls-Royce isn't like owning any other car, even compared to Ferraris or Bentleys. Ask anyone and they'll probably tell you that the king of the automotive world wears a majestic Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament atop its chrome radiator-style grille. If you've reached this level of automotive purchase, congratulations. You won't be disappointed.
As you can likely imagine, most of the creature comforts expected in regular luxury sedans are present in the Phantom, but it's the countless special touches that set Rolls-Royce apart. Every surface is covered in leather, adorned in veneer or fashioned from chrome. The carpets are made of deep-pile sheepskin that makes you want to wear stockings. That Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament disappears into the grille when the car is locked to prevent the flying lady from being kidnapped by hoodlums. And the RR logos in the 21-inch wheels don't spin when you're driving, so they're constantly on display for gawking passers-by.
