2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The only real competitors to the 2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom are the Maybach sedans, the 57 and 62.

Built by Mercedes-Benz and derived from the S-Class sedan, the Maybach duo offers a constellation of fit and finish choices to a body that’s less conservative, and less appealingly traditional, than that of the Phantom.
