About the car
This car was manufactured by Rolls Royce Motor Cars as part of the seventh generation of the Rolls Royce Phantom series. The production line for the seventh generation was launched in 2003 with the full-sized luxury 4-door saloon that lasted until 2017. The Phantom Extended Wheelbase (EWB) was presented in 2005 at the Geneva Motor Show.
This stretched Rolls Royce is 9.8 inches/250mm longer than the standard model Phantom. With these additional dimensions, aesthetically the vast height and width appear more in proportion. Mechanically, the Phantom EWB is equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.7 litre V12 petrol engine which accelerates to 62mph in 6.1 seconds with a maximum speed of 149mph.
It was assembled at Rolls Royce’s Goodwood plant in Chichester, England. This car was assembled with the unique coach doors where the door hinges are at the rear of the door as opposed to the conventional front. The EWB comes in a variety of colours, the one in particular is Twilight purple.
