I recently had the chance to spend a few minutes in the back of the new Rolls Royce Phantom, as we were driven back from the NY Auto Show. I only spent enough time to realize that, even though I was sitting behind the driver, I could stretch my legs all the way out and I still had about six inches between the soles of my sneakers and the front seatback. I also had the chance to play with the power sun shades to block out the poors that were walking on the sidewalk next to me.
Since that quick ride, though, I’ve been dying to get in the back of another one so I can play with more of the hilarious features. Thankfully, Doug DeMuro recently tested the new Phantom and walks us through its “Quirks and Features”, as he does.
In most DeMuro videos, he goes through a cars interesting features but most of them are features that already exist on most cars and aren’t that unusual, he just goes over them for those that don’t know. But if you’re going to watch any of his videos, this is the one to watch because seeing the attention to detail and level of craftsmanship the folks at Rolls Royce provide is an experience in itself.
Just in the back seat alone, there are an absurd amount of features, including power picnic trays with power screens behind them, automatically closing rear doors, black-out curtains for the power sun shades, lambs wool carpets and not a single piece of plastic. At all. It’s genuinely remarkable just how well built and well thought out the new Rolls Royce Phantom is. And that’s literally just the back seat and I didn’t even list all of the options back there.
I won’t list everything here, because it really is worth a watch. The Rolls Royce Phantom is absolutely the best luxury car in the world, maybe the history of the world. Seeing the inside and what it has/can do is remarkable.
