Autotrader Find: Brand New 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe


Although there are still a few straggler brand-new 2017 models currently listed for sale on Autotrader, there are only one or two brand-new 2016 models. This particular Rolls-Royce is one of them: a brand-new, never-titled 2016 Phantom Drophead Coupe. It’s currently offered by Braman Miami, the Rolls-Royce dealership in the area, for $579,575.

If you know the Rolls-Royce lineup, you’ll know a new Drophead Coupe is no longer available, as Rolls-Royce has redesigned the Phantom — with a newly redesigned convertible model surely on the horizon. As a result, this is probably the last new Phantom Drophead Coupe until the next-generation model comes out — and you can buy it.

Interestingly, this Phantom Drophead Coupe is listed with 5,176 miles, meaning it’s not actually “new” in the sense that it’s never been driven. However, the Carfax report confirms it’s never been titled, meaning it’s “new” in the sense that it’s never had a previous owner. It’s likely this was a Rolls-Royce press vehicle, or perhaps a dealership demo car that’s now being sold.

So, rather than calling it a “new” car, the technical term may be a “never-titled” car — meaning you won’t get to put the first few miles on it, but you’ll still be the original owner. And you’ll look ever so stylish, wafting down the street in your black Rolls-Royce with its red interior.

  1. I thought about buying a 2017 Toureg new a few weeks ago but decided against it. They were taking around 20k off, which ironically I thought still wasn’t enough! At some point even if it’s not titled they need to sell it like a used car. 

  2. Full price for a Rolls-Royce with 5000 miles? That is a lot of use for this type of car. Not to mention that if you have half a million to spend on a Rolls-Royce do you really want one that was driven around by commoners? This thing probably already has a 20K service bill waiting for the first owner. CP

    • I think the wheels look meh for that much money. I’ve seen nicer on a $70k X5. You can buy a seriously nice house near me for that money.
