If you want a car that combines regal road presence, peerless craftsmanship, impressive performance and infinite customization options, look no further than the 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom. This ultra-luxury car is the flagship model of the legendary British brand, and it has been updated for 2013 with some new features and technologies that make it even more desirable.
The 2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom has two body styles: a four-door sedan and a two-door coupe. Both are powered by a 6.7-liter V12 engine that delivers 453 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Phantom can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in less than six seconds, which is remarkable for a vehicle that weighs more than 5,000 pounds. The ride quality is superb, thanks to an electronically adjustable air suspension that easily absorbs bumps and potholes.
The interior of the Phantom is a masterpiece of luxury and craftsmanship. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, with ample legroom and headroom for four passengers. The seats are upholstered in fine leather, while the dashboard and door panels are adorned with wood veneers, chrome accents and soft-touch materials. The Phantom offers seemingly endless customization options, from choosing the color of the leather and stitching to selecting the type of wood trim and carpeting. You can even have your own family crest or logo embroidered on the headrests or etched on the door sills.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom also has many features and technologies that enhance its convenience and safety. The car has a new 8.8-inch control center display with audiovisual content, satellite navigation maps and driver information. The display can be controlled by a console-mounted multifunction controller or by voice commands. The navigation system has been upgraded with 3D map display, guided tours and enhanced points of interest. The audio system is a Harman Kardon Lexicon Logic 7 system with 15 speakers, two floor-mounted subwoofers, discrete surround-sound capability, a glovebox-mounted six-DVD changer, USB and auxiliary audio inputs and satellite radio.
