Rolls-Royce Drophead review

Published: 13 Jan 2015


What is it like to drive?

You don't drive a Phantom like a racing car, because it takes up so much road space. But the steering is accurate and the reactions faithful. It's fun to be brisk in; just don't bother being fast.

The 6.75-litre V12 is more than adequate, graceful and buttery-smooth. And well able to overtake when it's fitting to do so. Auto kickdowns can be a bit jerky though, and there's no tiptronic over-ride.
