West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this one owner 2005 Rolls Royce Phantom VII 6.75 V12 sedan with 62K original miles. The Phantom VII was introduced in 2003 as the first all new model produced by Rolls-Royce after BMW bought the company. It was intentionally designed to settle the question whether Rolls-Royce still owned the luxury market and is an ultra-luxury exotic large sedan built in England. It transports up to 5 passengers in the lap of luxury.
It features a handcrafted interior, suicide-style rear doors, and an aluminum spaceframe chassis. It is powered by a 453 hp 6.75-litre V12 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and is rear-wheel drive. Safety features include front and side airbags, traction control, and stability control. Drawing inspiration from the companys heritage, the Rolls Royce Phantom was unveiled in 2003 to great fanfare and acclaim and was the first model produced under BMWs ownership.
The design and the engineering team spent four years to develop the new Phantom with the result a vehicle that was obviously inspired by the legendary originals, retaining the traditional design cues, but built on a unique platform with a body made mostly of aluminum. The Rolls Royce factory located in Goodwood, West Sussex used robots to produce the Phantom, but with the final assembly completed by hand as was traditional for both Rolls-Royce & Bentley. The cars were further unique in being custom built, as had been the legacy of the original Rolls-Royce's, with the body, paint color, wood, leather, all options and specs, to be built specifically according to the customers individual specification.
Hand-assembled by the Rolls-Royce technicians in Goodwood, the heart of the new Phantom was a naturally aspirated 6.75-liter V12 engine. The unit was mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and developed a massive 720 pound-feet of torque, with the luxurious and huge Phantom reaching over 60mph in an astounding 5.7 seconds! Inside, simplicity defined the Phantoms interior. The rarely used controls were kept out of sight and even the multimedia screen was hidden behind a revolving panel placed in the center of the dashboard. The most advanced and modern of technology available was combined with traditional hand-craftmanship, offering a both unique and luxurious feel. The rear cabin was equipped with picnic tables and 12-inch monitors linked to a six-DVD changer, besides allowing to view digital television.
The over $400,000 price tag was high but not out of line, as this is a phenomenally well built car, unlike any other in its class. This 2005 Phantom is a single owner car which we recently acquired from its original owner of Lake Tahoe, NV. It was always garaged and driven in Nevada since new and the mileage is just under 63,000 miles. The condition far exceeds any expectation even from the low mileage. The paint and body are simply excellent, if not flawless. The interior retains an incredible new-car smell and shows virtually now wear. Chrome wheels highlight the elegant 'Black' paint and the 'Ivory' interior is an excellent complement to the exterior. The vehicle is equipped with a means of anticipating and/or detecting unwanted vehicle intrusion and an ignition disable device.
You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this seventh generation hand built 2005 Rolls-Royce Phantom VII with only some 62K original miles and a wonderful opportunity to own an original owners example of the continuation of the proud legacy from a time when Rolls Royce and Bentley were truly building the world's finest motor cars.
