About the car
This car was built by Rolls-Royce, the first of which in 1968, with the majority of the coachwork being designed by one of Rolls-Royce’ subsidiaries, Mulliner Park Ward. They were usually produced in a luxurious limousine form, with the exception of the rare few landaulets made.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom VI was the last of the high-end brand to have a separate chassis including coil springs in the front, leaf springs and live axle in the rear and drum brakes on all four wheels. Despite this increasing the weight of the vehicle, it did make it easy for styling individual bodies to tailor for client’s specific aspirations and preferences. The car’s power ranges from a 6.2 litre engine to a 6.75 litre engine which it increased to in 1979. This, coupled with an automatic transmission box, provided a quiet, smooth-running car journey.
Only 374 Phantom VI’s were built until the production line came to an end in 1991. Two of the Phantoms in particular are standouts in the group of cars used by Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal family in the UK, one of which presented as the Silver Jubilee Car. The Phantom VI comes in a wide range of colours, this one specifically in red and black.
