Top Gear Magazine name Rolls-Royce Phantom as Car of the Year

new-phantomThe coveted BBC Top Gear Magazine’s ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ has been awarded to the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Naming Phantom its Luxury Car of the Year, Top Gear Magazine wrote, “For a car of such generous size and weight, the Phantom is so quiet it’s almost an anechoic chamber”

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, commented, “Phantom points the way forward for the global luxury industry. It is a creation of great beauty and power, a dominant symbol of wealth and human achievement. It is an icon and an artwork that embraces the personal desires of each of our individual customers. That this is recognised by Top Gear Magazine and the rest of the world’s media is deeply gratifying and a reflection of the skill and passion of everyone who created this truly unique example of pinnacle luxury.”

Recently launched on the banks of Lake Lucerne in Vitznau, Switzerlanthd and referred to by the cognoscenti as ‘the best car in the world’, the eighth generation Phantom continues to please the world’s most prestigious and discerning car critics.

This much sought after award comes after statements that Phantom “Is the pinnacle, the epitome, of motoring luxury”  from Autocar, “Is an all-new version of the finest car in the world” from The Independent, “Utterly defines luxury” from PistonHeads and “Has changed what a car can be”  from GQ Magazine.

Phantom, which is the oldest nameplate in automotive history, still represents Rolls-Royce’s unrivalled pursuit of perfection.
