Luxury Living: Test Driving The New Rolls Royce
It is the car used by royals and heads of state. This is the 100th Year Anniversary of the Rolls Royce.We'll take you for a test drive in tonight's Luxury Living report.
(WSVN) -- There are cars....and then there is the Rolls Royce.... the ultimate riding machine.
Say hello to my little friend the 2004 Rolls Royce Phantom...
James Hondrosof Braman Miami says, "This car offers the ultimate in luxury, style, class and safety as well and technology..."
For example -- press a button and close the door.
"I gotta do that again..."
"That is sick..."
"Ok, ok one more time..."
Press another button and start the car..
"Is that crazy..."
No this is crazy -- an umbrella built into the door.
Only 600 of these Luxury Living vehicles will hit the road worldwide..the price tag --- 320 grand a pop..
"320-thousand for the car is how much a month you can do 1k a month but you're looking at a 30 year mortgage..."
Even if you could afford one you're still out of luck.
"We will be getting 20 in Miami in South Florida and they are all spoken for ..."
That's right Braman Miami is already sold out...so we decided to roll out the test model..
"Is it me..."
"Wendy's, how may I help you?"
"Hi, would you happen to have any Grey Poupon...make a face..."
56 hundred pounds
A V-12 engine
6 speed automatic transmission
453 horespower --- whatever it's so smooth it's like a magic carpet ride.
And the radios not bad either.
"It is the ultimate automobile in the world.."
I'll vouch for that....
