What is it?

A Rolls-Royce with sporting pretentions? Dash and blast it, what the bally Moses do those cads think they're doing? If it wasn't so dashed fantastic I'd take my stick to them.

Driving

The Rolls Coupe handles. Really, it does. We understand why you’re sceptical – it is slightly longer and wider than Dorset after all – but the steering and ride have been firmed up and there’s even a ‘sport’ button. A sport button! In a Rolls! We’d actually be angry if it wasn’t so damn good.

Rolls-Royce’s legendary 6.75-litre V12 provides the power here: all 453bhp and 531lb ft of torque of it. Which means a sub-six second 0-60mph sprint and a top speed in excess of 150mph. In a car with roughly the same kerbweight as a cruise liner.

On the inside

Unsurpassed. You could happily spend a day poking around all the glorious detailing on the Phantom Coupe – the suicide doors, the umbrellas that pop out of the front wings, the thick carpet, the switchgear – but you’d probably rather just go and drive the thing, right? It's practical in the way that having a personal, highly-paid assassin is practical.

Owning

It costs over £300,000. We think you can guess the rest.
