2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2013 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

With the exit of Maybach from the global stage, the Bentley Mulsanne is the only direct competitor to the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Like the Rolls-Royce, it's a German-owned example of British heritage, and like the Phantom, the Mulsanne offers similar opulence, in a similar package, at a similar price.

At this end of the market, the question isn't why should you buy the Phantom instead of the Mulsanne, but, rather, why not own both?
