The 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé looks like only one other car on the road, the Rolls-Royce Phantom sedan. Despite this, there are significant differences. Every exterior panel is different, and the Coupé is shorter overall than the sedan. It shares the distinctive (and controversial) Rolls-Royce front end treatment. It also has a cloth top, odd considering that hardtop convertibles are almost the norm today. Particularly noteworthy are the rear-hinged doors. Yes, those are massive chrome door handles you see under the side mirrors. We can’t think of one practical reason why you’d want the doors to hinge to the rear, and that’s exactly why they’re perfect for a car like this.
