Ever since the all-new 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom was revealed, we’ve been anticipating the day we’ll see one on the road. One lucky Phantom enthusiast will have a chance of a lifetime next year as they will be the first in the world to own the ultra-luxurious vehicle.
The very first 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom will be auctioned off in Naples, Florida USA at the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. Not only will the highest bidder receive a vehicle, they will also receive numerous gifts and an opportunity to participate the 2019 ROBB Report Car of the Year.
Taking place from the 26th to the 28th of January, the organizers of the event will donate all the proceeds to the Naples Children & Education Foundation.
What makes this 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom so special?
Besides rolling out of the factory first, this particular luxury saloon is coated in Belladonna Purple while the interior is perfectly finished in Arctic White with Tailored Purple accents. Once sold, it’s rightful owner will also take pride in showing off their unique door sill plaque demonstrating the vehicles build number.
Power remains to be drawn from a silent V12 twin-turbo 6.75-lite driving the rear wheels. Thanks to an eight-speed satellite aided automatic transmission, the ultra-luxurious 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom elegantly glides to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds before hitting a top speed of 250 km/h.
To ensure all occupants inside are not disturbed by any road noise or other noise motor cars, Rolls-Royce has installed 130 kgs of sound insulation materials and enlarged cast aluminium joints.
UAE customers can pre-order their 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantoms right now and can choose between the standard wheel-base or an extended one. However, there is a certain stigma attached when it comes to owning the very first Phantom.
