UK buyers can now get the new Rolls-Royce drop-top, if they pay over the odds
3 August 2007

The Phantom Drophead Coupe is now officially on sale in the UK, and dealer Tom Hartley has got the first car for anyone not on the waiting list.It comes as no surprise that this metropolitan blue model, complete with optional teak deck and aluminium bonnet, comes at a premium. A premium of over £100,000. The £400,000 that Hartley wants may seem an extortionate sum for a car with a list price of £260,000, but it's likely that he'll get it.As the first model on sale, and with roughly £35,000 of extras included, we're sure there will be plenty of buyers willing to shell out for the 6.5-litre V12 soft-top.Now where's that loan application?
