Until recently the world’s elite only had one choice when it came to ultra-luxury coupes, the Bentley Continental GT. Rolls-Royce is planning to change that with the introduction of their Phantom Coupe at the Geneva Auto Show.

Until recently the world’s elite only had one choice when it came to ultra-luxury coupes, the Bentley Continental GT. Rolls-Royce is planning to change that with the introduction of their Phantom Coupe at the Geneva Auto Show.

Previewed by the 101EX concept, the new coupe shares the wheelbase and design of the Phantom Drophead Coupe. Power is delivered by a BMW built 6.75 liter V12 engine which produces 453 hp and 720 Nm of torque. A strong single piece roof unit allows for the deletion of unsightly B-pillars, while the use of lightweight components and an aluminum chassis combine to provide a lively driving experience.

The interior is virtually identical to the convertible with the exception of rear boot space, which is now 395 liters. Carrying over from the 101EX concept are the simulated “star lights” which are mounted to the vehicle’s ceiling.

The $400,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe will go into production this summer.
