Introduction

Whether Rolls-Royce continued to build the 'best car in the world' by the late-1960s was very much open to debate. But one thing that's unquestioned is that the Phantom was the roomiest, most recornisable, most regal car you could spend your money on.

When the Phantom V metamorphosed into the Phantom VI in 1968, it would remain the limousine of choice for the British aristocracy. And because of that, it would remain in production – to special order only, and pretty much unchanged – right up until 1992. Despite this, and its V8's capacity boost to 6750cc in 1978, it was fitted with drum brakes right until the end.
