One day it’s raining, the next it’s sunny and hot making you forget about the rain, the next it’s raining again – and this is the vicious cycle of the British summer at the moment. This is why if you’re getting hitched, or having a big celebration in the coming weeks left of summer, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé is definitely the ideal ride.
Being the convertible version of its father the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the Drophead Coupé is like that rebellious teenage son who got his father’s good looks and wants to show them off to the world in a loud, proud and exciting way. A full four-seat two-door beauty, the Drophead Coupé is a simple stunner yet nothing about the car is simple at all. It is the epitome in excellence when it comes to luxury cars, with a young, fun and sexy swagger which is unmatched by any other car.
With a hood that goes down, this is the perfect weather for hiring the Coupé. For your wedding, this car will be a stunner whether it’s raining or shining outside, as with hood up or hood down it makes a massive impact wherever it goes. You’ll definitely enjoy riding in it too, as the Coupé is one of the most luxurious, smoothest and quietest rides you will ever have.
If you’ve got a big event, wedding, party or other celebration coming up then this is the car for you! Call us today and make use of the Phantom Coupé while this weather lasts. We’ll be waiting for your call!
Wowaweewaa! We do love to see a good customised Rolls-Royce here at Phantom Finder and when we saw this next one, we don’t lie when we say our eyeballs nearly popped out of their sockets! This customised Rolls-Royce is every bling lover’s dream with a capital D!
Swarovski, a massive company known around the world for their quality and unique cut of crystal that go into making their fantastic jewellery and range of other products, have not only gone ahead and customised this 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud turning it from a silver dream into a sparkly, spangly, stunning crystal dream. The classic beauty has been adorned with around 1 million of the Swarovski cut crystals making it shine with a million colours from all directions, and is definitely a work of art that will make people stop and stare in its tracks.
We’re used to hearing about wealthy millionaires splashing the cash to customise their massively expensive Rolls-Royce cars to stand out even further from the crowd, so we were surprised and impressed to hear that Swarovski have beautified this luxury car even further all in the name of charity. This Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 1962 is to be auctioned over the next few months in support of the ‘Help in Motion’ charity which helps drug addicts. Until then, it is on display at the Four Seasons Hotel in Munich, Germany and if you’re in the area then we definitely recommend for you to go along and pay it a visit!
Swarovski have blown us away with this masterpiece and we know whoever becomes the owner of this dazzling beauty will be one very lucky bling King or Queen indeed! We’ll be sure to keep you updated on what happens next… We’re dying to find out ourselves!
We all knew it had to be coming, but finally we know it’s true: Rolls-Royce have been hard at work producing the new Rolls-Royce Ghost Coupéwhich is set to debut, it is rumoured, in 2014.
Whilst being test-driven in Germany very recently, the paps managed to get a few pictures of the disguised luxury sports car and even under its cover, some of its key features were easily recognisable as a Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The rear-hinged doors are of the same design as the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, the two-door version of the luxurious Phantom. Arguably, the giveaway is the shutline at the leading edge of the door, which arcs down the bodyside and back along the door sill in a graceful way that is only captured this way by Rolls-Royce.
The by-product of the Phantom Coupé amalgamated with the Ghost also revealed the Ghost’s sport proportions with a streamlined windscreen and flowing roofline; all on all, giving off a much more dynamic and aggressive look than the Phantom Drophead Coupé.
With a wheelbase reduced by around 150mm and a rear overhang that is much tighter gives the impression that the Ghost Coupé will be just over five metres long.
At Phantom Finder, we love both the Rolls-Royce Ghost and we love the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé which is why we’re very excited for when Rolls-Royce will officially unveil their new undoubted beauty upon the world. Until then we can only imagine and we guess we, along with the rest of the world, will just have to wait and see!

Wow! Even we’re in shock here at Phantom Finder, coming across the news that a Rolls-Royce car has been sold at almost a record-breaking, ground-shaking five million pounds! Sheeeeesh, that certainly is a lot of money for a purchase. Let’s look at how and why…
The unique Silver Ghost dates back 100 years, and there is no other car of its type still around. Being sold back then for around £1,000, the car went under the hammer at the Bonham’s sale at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in an auction that has been described as “pure theatre”. The sale was long and drawn out as the two bidding enthusiasts went up in inclinations of £100,000 at a time, as standers-by and lookers-on watched with drawn breath in hushed tones. Finally the sale came to a rest at a whopping £4,705,500 making this Silver Ghost the most expensive Rolls-Royce ever sold at auction!
Sold after the death of its previous owner, the famed US collector John O’Quinn, the vintage type vehicle is still capable of cruising at 50 or 60 mph and still has its headlights, carriage lights, rear lights, inflatable tyres and still runs practically silently. The car fetched way more at auction than even experts predicted, with them being confident it would take at least two million pounds. However, no one even though it would nearly hit the five million mark so this is massive news.
Back in the days when this Silver Ghost was made, coach builders would be employed to build the bodywork and coach line while only the engine and chassis was sold by Rolls-Royce. The first owner of this Silver Ghost hired only the best coach builders at the time which has helped in this car lasting to the present day; other Rolls-Royces of this age have lost their coachwork over time. The quality that the Silver Ghost has retained is so great that a toy was made based on it in the 1960’s giving this car the nickname ‘The Corgi Rolls-Royce’.
Its history is rich interesting and its future looks set to be even more so! This Rolls-Royce will be celebrating its centenary with a brand new anonymous owner and who knows, another hundred years may pass and it may be selling for triple or more of what it did this week. Long live The Corgi!
Once again, the brunette beauty who is famous for, well, who knows what exactly, is making all the headlines! Firstly for her new found love affair with rapper and producer, Kanye West, and now for her brand new ride… Yes, Kim Kardashian has just bought herself a brand new gloss black Rolls-Royce Ghost!
Making the purchase only last week, the world quickly found out about it via social networking site Twitter, the starting point from which all gossip seems to leak out to the universe nowadays. Ditching her old white Rolls-Royce Ghost, Kim opted for this brand new two-toned and gloss black model and we have to say, it actually kind of suits her!
A shop known for servicing celebrity cars, Platinum Motorsports, did the exterior of the Rolls-Royce and this is the same company that matted Kanye West’s Lamborghini. Clearly Kim K’s been taking tips from her new boyfriend and they’ve certainly paid off as this black Rolls-Royce Ghost is gorgeous (although we would say that because we are pretty biased when it comes to Rollers).
While we’re on the subject, Kim recently treated her new flame to a new ride too, a $750,000 Lamborghini Aventador (which Kanye has already had altered by the way). It must be quite difficult for them as a couple trying to decide which car to ride in to wherever it is that celebrity couples go to on dates… Whatever they choose, both these rides are definitely HOT and Kim gets a massive thumbs up from Phantom Finder for her great taste in cars! We’re now just anticipating her next one…
