If you’re ever in the position to drop half a million bucks on a luxury car, we’re betting it’s probably going to be equipped with all the uber expensive optional bells and whistles you can think of.
In fact, during his review of this 2018 Phantom, Doug Demuro kicked things off by taking a detailed look at the options list, which includes the Phantom Package ($35,100), the Infinity Black exterior paint ($11,200), Chrome Plated exhausts ($4,075) and more. All in all, this Rolls-Royce has $100,000’s worth of options on it.
Among them is the Phantom’s impressive camera system, which gives you a 3D image of the car and its surroundings, much like the system you get in BMW’s flagship 7-Series model.
Naturally, there’s no shortage of jaw dropping features in the new Phantom. The doors are, simply put, spectacular, as is the overall craftsmanship of the cabin, not to mention all the automation inside – you don’t even have to open and close your picnic tables by hand.
A nearly perfect vehicle?
Ultimately, the only complaint with regards to the interior involved the gear lever, which DeMuro found to be a bit flimsy and cheap-looking, saying that a $550,000 car should have a more substantial gear lever.
So, what’s the 2018 Phantom like to drive? Extremely comfortable and very, very quiet. The steering is light, perhaps a lot lighter than any of us would be comfortable with in a regular car, but for the Phantom, it works. Besides, it’s not as if it’s slow, offering the best of both worlds.
