‘Five-star Car’ ac­co­lade for new Rolls-Royce Phantom

The Corkman - - SUMMER MOTORING 2018 -

THE New Rolls-Royce Phantom has been pre­sented with a ‘Five-star Car’ ac­co­lade at the Au­to­car Awards 2018, which cel­e­brates the best cars pro­duced in the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try over the past year.

In­tro­duced over 80 years ago, the fa­mous Au­to­car road test re­mains one of most thor­ough and ex­act­ing as­sess­ments to which a new car can be sub­jected. The New Phantom is one of just two cars to be awarded five stars in 2018.

In nam­ing the new Rolls-Royce Phantom a ‘Fives­tar Car’, Au­to­car wrote, ‘ The eighth car to carry the Phantom name­plate dis­plays stag­ger­ing tech­ni­cal com­plex­ity yet func­tions with im­mac­u­late re­fine­ment, pol­ish, com­fort and grace. It has a sense of oc­ca­sion far in ad­vance of any­thing else on four wheels and is now bet­ter to drive than ever be­fore. As our road testers con­cluded, the world’s great­est and finest lux­ury car is now also the very best.’

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars, added, ‘Our en­gi­neers and de­sign­ers made in­cal­cu­la­ble ef­forts to re­de­fine the no­tions of com­fort and lux­ury when they de­vel­oped the Phantom. The most silent and re­fined car on the road, the Phantom demon­strates a true de­vo­tion to lux­ury, man­i­fested in beauty, power and be­spoke crafts­man­ship. We are hon­oured to re­ceive Au­to­car’s ‘Five-star Car’ award as a tes­ta­ment to the skill and pas­sion which em­bod­ies Rolls-Royce’s tire­less pur­suit of per­fec­tion.’
