2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The only real competitors to the 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom range are the Maybach 57 and 62, and even these can only compete with the Phantom Sedan.

They are built by Mercedes-Benz and are technically just as polished as the Rolls-Royce models, but unfortunately their styling is too similar to the much lesser S-Class on which they share a platform.

In a segment where owners typically wish to be seen, the design of the Maybachs can be perceived as too conservative.

The Bentley Continental Supersports and the lesser Continental GTC Speed are a bit left of center when it comes to the world of ultra-luxury, but their prodigious amounts of power, prestige, and exclusivity are worth a look.

Note that unlike the standard Continental models, the Supersports only have two seats.
