Serving North Olmsted, Strongsville, and Cleveland, OH

As the 2016 Phantom takes its bows, the 2017 Phantom moves center stage. The flagship Rolls-Royce has never been more desirable than it is today. Exciting speed meets unmatched ride quality. Cutting edge design meets the latest in automotive comforts. For elite shoppers, this is a good time to invest in a Rolls-Royce.

Performance

Perhaps it is a good thing that this car is so exclusive. If there were more on the road, the speed limit might have to be raised to accommodate them. The 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom dominates the road with its 6.75-liter V12 engine. For 2017, there was no need to change. Current horsepower is 453. As if that many horses under the hood weren’t enough to keep this handsome ride going fast, the powertrain generates a whopping 531 lb-ft. of torque thrust. This ensures quick acceleration. In fact, despite its generous size, the sedan can move from zero to 60 mph in under six seconds. Drivers will appreciate the efficiency of an eight-speed automatic transmission. It moves power to the rear wheels for imperceptibly shifts power from the engine to the rear wheels.

Ride Quality & Handling

The Phantom must pamper its guests. After all, this is a car with the ability to create the night sky through well-placed LED lights in the headliner. To be sure, the 2016 edition offered the ultimate ride quality. 2017 Phantoms go the extra mile toward softening the road. Self-leveling air springs take the bite out of hitting a bump. Electronic damping regulates response, keeping it even and steady. For the driver, these features ensure good handling. Edmunds calls the steering light as a feather.

Design & Comfort

Art deco lighting takes a bite out of the night in this Rolls-Royce flagship. Like the 2016 edition before it, the 2017 Phantom is carefully crafted with old-world charm and contemporary know-how. Beautiful design features create a classic look to stand the test of time. Each element has been chosen for both its look and its appeal. Some 60 artisans have a hand in bringing the Phantom to life. Using nine layers of material, artists then drum-dye the leather to ensure accurate fit and colorfastness. Expert craftsmen hand-stitch the seats and other surfaces to create a lasting warmth. Even the floors wear a lush lamb’s wool. A bespoke edition offers a one-of-a-kind fashion statement with your personality as its driving force. Whether you choose Malabar, Wenge, Elm or Walnut, the car’s veneers come from one tree, ensuring a flawless match throughout the interior. Adding to your design choices, the Phantom is offered as a glamorous coupe or exciting coupe convertible. Exclusive Zenith editions are available in limited numbers.

The 2017 edition makes comfort a priority just as the 2016 edition did. Careful engineering finds more space for each position in this large sedan. For instance, the flat rear floor offers legroom and knee room as if you were in a living room. On either row, large, well-cushioned seats can be power-adjusting, power-heated, and power-ventilated. If you want more room, the extended wheelbase Phantom is just the ticket.
