The iconic Phantom I hit the market in 1925 as a follow up to the Silver Ghost, its other 40/50 hp model. The car set the bar for performance and luxury, and was equipped with an OHV inline six-cylinder engine that was more than strong enough to pull the vehicles heavy frame. Since its creation, the Phantom I has been the definition of elegance and luxury, and still is an automobile synonymous with wealth and status. The 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom I comes with either a three or four-speed manual transmission, depending on whether it was manufactured at the Springfield, Massachusetts, plant or the original factory in Derby, England. Another difference between American and British Phantoms is the size of the long-wheelbase models. The British version is actually 4 larger than its American counterpart. With that said, there are no major differences between British and American Phantom Is when it comes to performance and quality.
