2002 Rolls-Royce Phantom Pre-Production Prototype

This Phantom is a pre-production prototype used during the late development and testing stages of the first new Rolls-Royce created since BMW acquired Rolls Royce automobiles, what is arguably the most famous brand name in the world, in July 1998.

The production Phantom is over 19 feet long and powered by a 6.75 liter V12 engine. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and can reach 149 miles per hour. The Phantom is the result of a four-year design and engineering project that has created a totally new car, built in a totally new manufacturing plant in Goodwood, West Sussex, England, near where co-founder Sir Henry Royce once lived.

BMW took over Rolls-Royce production from Volkswagen. Volkswagen built its last Rolls-Royce in August 2002, ending nearly sixty years of Rolls-Royce manufacturing tradition at the Crewe, England facility.

The Phantom was formally introduced to the United States in January, 2003 during the Detroit International Auto Show.
