Here’s a 2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom that I saw at Rolls-Royce Tampa Bay in January of 2020. The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII is a luxury sedan that’s been in production since 2017 (the first model year was 2018). The engine is a 6.75 liter N74B68 twin turbo V12 that produces 563 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. This car does 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. This car weighs 5,644 pounds since the chassis is an aluminum spaceframe. The starting price of the Phantom is $450,000.
Today’s car of the day is this 2005 Rolls-Royce Phantom that was at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. It’s from the seventh generation, which was made between 2003 and 2017. The Phantom was unveiled at the 2003 North American International Auto Show. The engine is a 6.75 liter V12 that produces 453 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic. This car weighs 5,479 pounds since the body is aluminum and the chassis is an aluminum spaceframe. This car does 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 149 mph. This Phantom was auctioned off for $104,500.
