2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom: Overview

What’s New for 2017?

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom is unchanged save for a new "Zenith Edition" model as the Phantom enters its last year before a predicted redesign for 2018.

What We Like

Amazing presence; tremendously powerful engine; wide array of high-end features and equipment

What We Don’t

Hugely expensive, even for a Rolls-Royce; interior feels a bit dated; massive depreciation


The 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom is one of the ultimate luxury cars on the market. Offered in four different versions, it’s often considered to be the last word in high-end opulence among modern cars, as you might expect given its enormous price tag.

Speaking of price, let’s start there. A base-level Rolls-Royce Phantom sedan — which, believe us, is anything but basic — starts around $420,000 with shipping. Upgrade to the 2-door Phantom Coupe and you should expect to pay around $440,000 including destination. The convertible Phantom Drophead Coupe and the long-wheelbase Phantom Extended Wheelbase are even pricier: Expect to pay around $480,000 before options.

Yes, that’s right — even at more than $400,000, you don’t get everything standard. In fact, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is offered with a wide array of high-end features and options, ranging from a rear-theater entertainment system to a rear bar, a rear humidor, a refrigerator, a twinkly Starlight Headliner and much, much more. For 2017, there’s also a new limited-production "Zenith Edition" model that marks the end of the current Phantom, before an all-new model reportedly arrives for 2018.

So what does come standard? Every Phantom features a series of luxurious items like a power-closing trunk, a slew of exterior cameras, front and rear parking sensors, 21-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front and rear seats and more. There’s also a 6.7-liter V12 that makes an impressive 453 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque.

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom isn’t for everyone, but for a lucky few buyers who want to enjoy the best in high-end luxury, it’s hard to outdo Rolls-Royce’s flagship model.
