The Rolls-Royce Phantom has received the UK Car of the Year Awards’ prestigious ‘Best Luxury Car’ honour. Drawing on votes from a jury of 27 leading motoring journalists, the awards highlight the best new cars on the market for UK customers.
Since its inception 113 years ago, creating bespoke motor cars has been at the marque’s core. ‘The Gallery’, Phantom’s unique space to exhibit art, offers the most discerning patrons of luxury an innovative canvas on which to express their tastes, lifestyles and passions. This unique attribute was recognised by critic Nargess Shahmanesh Banks: “The Phantom is the pinnacle motor car, and the latest iteration not only delivers an out-of-this-world sense of luxury, it offers novel elements, such as ‘The Gallery’, for that extra touch of exclusivity and personalisation.” Another critic, Alisdair Suttie, summarised, “The pinnacle of luxury motoring has just been pushed that bit higher with the Phantom.”
Torsten Müller Ötvös, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Phantom is the longest lasting automotive nameplate in the world and has defined luxury motoring for almost a century. It represents Rolls-Royce’s tireless pursuit of perfection and remains a truly dominant symbol of achievement. We are delighted that this has been this recognised by the critics of the UK Car of the Year Awards.”
