Encounter: The Rolls-Royce Phantom at Baselworld

A few weeks ago, while at Baselworld 2013, we ran into some magnificent automobiles. One that definitely caught our attention —due to its elegance and beauty— was this Rolls-Royce Phantom parked next to the Press Center. This particular contrast paint scheme in Diamond Black and Silver, is one of our favorites. Just a perfect match for our Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is hand-built at the home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood,  England. From seamstresses to surface finish technicians and French polishers, it takes sixty pairs of hands to design, craft and construct a Rolls-Royce before it's ready for its new owner.

Powered with a V12 direct injection engine and 21" alloy wheels, this car has a power output of 463hp getting from 0 to 60mph in just 5.7 seconds. Definitely a powerful car and the comfiest ride on earth.

This Phantom with seat piping and contrast paint scheme has a sticker price of approximately $420,000 USD. For more info on the Phantom click here.
