The Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead has been awarded five stars by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson in his weekly newspaper column.
Commenting on the model in his Sunday Times piece, Clarkson suggested that the design of the car makes it seem like it is something from the future.
“Everything, from the unpainted bonnet to the backwards-opening suicide doors to the rattan carpets and … even the teak Sunseeker-style decking on the back, makes it look as fresh and as futuristic as tomorrow morning’s papers,” he said.
Clarkson went on to say that the car is built “to arrive” – a conclusion he came to having received a positive reception after taking the vehicle to a recent party.
In October, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced that it was going to develop its Goodwood headquarters and manufacturing facility.
One of the reasons cited for this necessary growth was to deal with “unprecedented customer demand” for its Phantom family of cars.
