Watch Goodwood's new £285k two-door in action: CEO Ian Robertson interview
4 March 2008

The covers came off the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe at the Geneva motor show earlier, a car that will broaden the appeal of one of Britain's best-known car brands to a new, younger, keener driver - and you can watch this incredible new gentleman's GT in action in Autocar's exclusive Phantom Coupe video.The footage shows this £285,000 two-door floating down British B-roads. It also contains an exclusive interview with Rolls-Royce CEO Ian Robertson, in which he explains what's so great and unique about this new Rolls Coupe, and who will buy it.Rolls unveiled its new Phantom Coupe to an expectant Geneva crowd. "Having released pictures of the car two weeks ago, we didn't expect such a big turn-out for the unveiling," said Rolls PR man Jon Stanley. "We don't tend to take orders at motor shows, but so far, the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.""This car should bring in a new type of customer for us," he continued, "the sort of owner who like the idea of a Rolls-Royce, but wouldn't opt for a limousine or a convertible. We expect two thirds of Coupe buyers to be new to the brand but, since they're likely to be the sort of people who own five or more cars, we're unlikely to be calling those 'conquest sales'."
