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.
