Article by Christian A., on May 15, 2017

If you have plans to purchase a new factory-fresh Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe, it is much better to hurry up. This is because the only remaining it is the newest and the last Phantom VII Drophead Coupe to roll off from the carmaker’s production line, as confirmed by a certification from the Rolls-Royce factory.

Rolls-Royce introduced its Phantom family as early as 2003. The first to be launched was the sedan in 2003, and it was followed by the convertible four years later in 2007. Then in 2008, Rolls-Royce introduced the coupe version of the Phantom VII. Now, a decade since the open-top Phantom VII was born, the “Last of Lastedition -- the sole remaining example of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe -- is now up for sale by at the Seven Car Lounge in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. According to the listing, this Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe is a fresh output of the carmaker’s Goodwood assembly facility, which is in now being retooled to prepare for the production of the model’s future successor.

As a proof that this Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe – with Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of 12345 -- is still fresh from the factory, the “Last of Last” edition has zero miles traveled since it was rolled off from the production line. Its core is served by a powerful 6.5-liter 12-cylinder V12 petrol engine, which delivers 460 PS of max output and 720 Nm of peak torque. This high level of power is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. The powertrain is accommodated in body frame that is made from pure aluminum components. By using such material and construction, Rolls-Royce was able to make the casing as light as possible while making it stiff and strong.

Meanwhile, the short front overhang, long rear overhang, the signature long bonnet and the wide-sized wheels are beautifully complemented by a special exterior design that takes inspiration from the Riva Aquarima speedboat. The exterior is wrapped in white and turquoise finish with brushed chrome treatment on the aluminum grille and the bonnet as well as on the windshield surround. This exterior styling is also reflected in the interior, with the cabin featuring white leather and turquoise accents, as well as carbon fiber trim. Its droptop is finished in gray.

Seven Car Lounge didn’t disclose publicly how much a buyer would have to shell out to acquire this Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe “Last of Last” edition. However, interested clients could inquire about the price online (by request). It is expected that this Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe “Last of Last” edition would cost much more than the convertible’s base price of around $500,000.
