Referring to a Roll-Royce as a car would be disrespectful to the handful of skilled workmen that envisaged them to perfection. There are hardly any cars that can live up to the luxury and premium standards of a Rolls Royce and the new Phantom is one of the flagships of the brand in this category. Not only is it an epitome of luxury, but is also the elegant beast that walks the roads with its British manor. RR is not the kind of brand that refreshes its products too frequently, for the style and exuberance which it dictates is already ahead of its time when naive.

Overall Rating


The epitome of luxury and opulence the Rolls Royce Phantom sedan is truly a land prowling yacht. With no radical change for the 2011 model year, the Rolls Royce Phantom is available in two wheelbases i.e., standard and extended, and gets a host of luxury features as standard. Deriving its power from a big 6.7-liter V12 capable of producing 453 horses and 513 pound-feet of torque. Thus, with nil changes, the Rolls Royce Phantom for the 2011 model year can be bought at a starting MSRP of $385,000. Although the Phantom presents its class, it still locks horns against the likes of the Bentley Mulsanne and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Pricing and Features

9.9/10

The new Rolls Royce Phantom is available in a single trim but two body styles, a regular and one with an extended wheelbase. The base Phantom would set you back by $385,000 before options and customizations while extending the wheelbase would be charged with an additional $70,000. Optional amenities are plenty and are more inclined towards unraveling a customized buying experience.

The Phantom in itself is a pretty large car similar to a yacht and it's best to opt for the regular wheelbase model and spend the additional money on customization of the car. 

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Engine and Performance

9.9/10

The Roll-Royce Phantom gets a meaty 6.7-liter BMW sourced V12 engine which produces a strong 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and the power is sent to the rear wheels only. Despite the large dimensions and heft of the car, the V12 does a great job of propelling the car to 60 mph from standstill in just 5.5 seconds, whereas it covers the quarter-mile in just 14.3 seconds, not that anybody is going to take it to the drag strip.

The Bentley Mulsanne is not only more affordable than the Rolls Royce but also offers a more powerful engine and thus a superior performance. The Mercedes S-Class too has a superior engine output and is also the quickest amongst the lot, thanks to the lower weight. But neither of these cars are bought for their outright acceleration performance and yet all the three would put any other luxury sedan to shame. 

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Fuel Economy

6.0/10

Fuel efficiency isn’t the priority of somebody who plans on buying a car of this stature. Nevertheless, the EPA has rated the 2011 Phantom for 11 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, whereas the combined fuel economy is rated for 14 mpg. The large 26.4-gallon gas tank makes life easier for the chauffeur, extending the Phantom’s driving range to 350 miles of combined city and highway driving.

The segment in general isn’t frugal and all three participants are true to that fact. The Bentley Mulsanne has a higher fuel consumption rate than the Phantom and also employs a smaller fuel tank which together translates to a lower driving range. The S-Class, on the other hand, has a similar fuel economy to that of the Roll-Royce but then also features the smallest fuel tank in this comparison. 

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Interior

9.9/10

The interior of a Roll-Royce is what separates it from the rest of the world. There is not even a single strip of plastic to be observed inside the cabin as for all its entirety, the space is embraced in soft-touch leatherette. Opulence and elegance are way more than one would find in a private jet or even a 5-star hotel suite. There is enough space for all the occupants but one can also opt for the EWB model that opens up more space at the back. The materials are extraordinarily affluent judging by just a touch of a finger, and the quality of handcrafted panels is something that will make you fall in love with the RR. Add to it the endless customizations that and it is inevitable to escape the charms of the Phantom.

At the front, the Mercedes has better legroom but lacks in terms of headroom, whereas there is no compromise in any aspect in the Rolls-Royce. Rear seat comfort and space are also the best in the latter. Moreover, it also features a large 16.2 cu-ft trunk which is similar to the ones found in the Mercedes or the Mulsanne.

  • 9-way power-adjustable heated front bucket seats w/adjustable lumbar, adjustable head restraints, and memory function
  • Rear bench seat
  • Leather seat trim
  • Power adjustable leather-wrapped tilt/telescoping steering wheel w/memory
  • 4-zone auto climate control w/rear seat controls and active carbon microfilter
  • Leather and wood interior trim
  • Keyless remote entry w/remote start

How is the 2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Sedan’s infotainment system?

The infotainment system is similar to BMW’s iDrive infotainment unit. The signature mouse-like controller of the infotainment system hides in the center console when not needed while the LCD screen itself hides behind a classic analog clock. The design is pretty neat and clean and looks perfectly appointed. The list of standard features is long, but the list of options is longer. 

  • Infotainment system
  • 15-speaker Harman/Kardon stereo system
  • DVD navigation system w/video monitor
  • Rolls-Royce Assist telematics service
  • Voice commands
  • Remote 6-disc CD changer
  • Hands-free telephone

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Exterior

9.0/10

The exterior of the Phantom is similar to all the other Rolls-Royce models. It is bold, long, and makes a mammoth appearance. Anywhere you go around the world, people would have their eyes on it. One might have to keep additional security just for the car. The prominent C-pillars keep the VVIPs away from the limelight, whereas the rear-hinged coach doors provide elegant ingress and egress. Plus the signature umbrellas nicely tucked in the doors are a tasteful addition to that which is known by all.

The Phantom is a much larger car than the Bentley and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and is thus heaviest in comparison. The ground clearance is decent at just under 6 inches, but the long-wheelbase even on the basic model requests for a watchful eye on the broken set of roads to keep the car from scraping the bottom. 

  • Projector-beam bi-xenon headlights w/auto-off, dusk sensor, and headlight washers
  • Power-folding heated power-adjustable color-coded auto-dimming mirrors w/memory
  • Rain-sensing variable intermittent wipers w/heated washer jets
  • Power trunk pull down & release
  • 21-inch aluminum wheels with w/partial wheel covers
  • Run-flat tires

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Safety

9.9/10

There is no chance that either the NHTSA or the IIHS would perform a crash test on a certain number of Rolls-Royce Phantoms just for the sake of rating them for their crashworthiness. But Roll-Royce ensures the safety of its occupants in its ways. It offers a wide range of active and passive safety features to provide a haven for anybody who steps into the lavishes of the Phantom

  • Stability control and Traction control
  • 4-wheel anti-lock ventilated disc brakes w/assist
  • Front-impact and side-impact airbags w/occupant sensor
  • Front/rear side curtain airbags
  • Front/rear active head restraints
  • Cruise control
  • Front/rear parking distance sensors

2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Final Verdict

Roll-Royce is the epitome of luxury and elegance, and the Phantom is one of its finest products to date. The car has innumerable ways to be personalized and the performance is such that it would put sports cars to shame. It isn’t just any ordinary car that one can just go to the dealership and buy, but if you are one of the few who can afford one, it should provide you the experience of a lifetime.
