2014 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2014 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Bentley Mulsanne is the only remaining competitor, if you could call it that, for the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Both offer similar levels of opulence, at a similar price, in a similar package, and both are now-German examples of British heritage.

However, when you're spending this much on a car, the question becomes less of "which one," and more of "why not both?"
