The Rolls Royce Phantom or New Phantom as it was called when it premiered to carry on the theme of the mythic Silver Ghost. It was then as now a bold example of the larger Rolls Royce catalogue. With a supped up engine at 2750 RPM compared to the Ghosts 2250, it roars like the decade of its birth. When the U.S version was produced in 1926 it would retain some small difference from the U.K. version with a 3-speed transmission rather than a 4 speed, a longer wheelbase, and other slight differences. Like most Rolls of the time, the Phantoms performance and appearance can vary depending on the coachwork, which could have been done by any of several companies depending on the customers tastes. This is very different from the more uniform cars we have today with every Phantom having its own distinct character from a plucky Coupe de Ville to an almost regal Limousine.
