Fancy A “Cheap” Rolls-Royce? This Phantom Drophead Coupe Might Be The One

If you want to drive around in something that shows not just your wealth, but also your excellent taste in cars, it’s hard to go wrong with a 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.

This Phantom Drophead Coupe, currently up for grabs on Bring A Trailer, has only ever been owned by one individual after being purchased new from Rolls-Royce Beverly Hills.

The car is painted in Black Diamond Metallic and comes complete with a brushed stainless steel hood and a black soft top. Making the car stand out from most other Rolls-Royce models are custom black and white wheels which were built for the car and mounted shortly after the owner took delivery. There are also Pirelli Scorpion Tires fitted, but the seller says new tires will be provided to the buyer.

Inside, there is red dark leather upholstery across the seats, door panels, and lower part of the dashboard. Other luxurious elements include wooden accents on the doors and a piano black dashboard, power-adjustable front seats with memory function, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, power accessories, and more.

Powering the Phantom Drophead Coupe is the British car manufacturer’s silky smooth 6.75-liter naturally-aspirated V12 with 453 hp at 5350 rpm and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque at 3500 rpm. Despite being more than a decade old, the car has 28,000 miles (45,000 km) under its belt and will be sold with service records, factory books and tools, and most importantly, a clean AutoCheck report and a clean Nevada title.

At the time of writing, the highest bid of the car was $95,500, with five days left in the auction. So, it’s not exactly cheap, but rather affordable compared to what you’d have to shell out for a brand-new Rolls.

    tbh, I have never seen seats worn out or in a shape like that in an RR.

        That’s a sad thing. It summarizes everything went wrong with the car industry.

          Agree. Rolls Royce is no exception, BMW have been cheapening their own over the years too.

            True, every car maker is doing that already and been doing that for years not just recently. I guess what I wanted to say in the first comment if Rolls-Royce is now doing it, expect everything and anything for any other car maker.

    If you want to drive around in something that shows not just your wealth, but also your excellent taste in cars…
    Then you’re probably not a great car enthusiast and more just a show pony who thinks people are impressed by your ostentatiousness.
