The Top Gear car review:Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe
What is it like on the road?
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.
