The 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom Limelight Is Built For People That Matter


Meaning, not you.

Only 25 of these have been produced and, not surprisingly, Rolls-Royce is having no trouble selling them all. This is the 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom Limelight Edition, part of the most personal collection ever made by the marque and the subject of our latest review. This is not your ordinary Rolls-Royce. No, this one was designed specifically for royalty, celebrities and, because why the hell not, the occasional dictator. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 6.75-liter V12 with 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque.

Yes, it can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds but you need to understand something: this is not meant to be a high-performance sedan. Yes, it has that V12 but the Phantom Limelight's focus is on its rear seat passengers.

The driver, more than likely, is nothing more than a paid chauffer. Step into the rear through those coach doors, aka suicide doors, and what you'll find will make the creature comforts of your home suddenly seem, well, bland. Heck, the inside roof is lined with over 1,000 hand-woven fiber optic lights that purposely resembles a star-filled sky. It's all just too mind-boggling. Special thanks to Los Gatos Luxury Cars for letting us film the car.
