Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe Sold Out For 2008
Sorry dude, but all 200+ examples of the forthcoming Roller Coupe already have buyers. Pretty nifty when you consider the $400,000 Phantom two-door isn't even at dealers yet. Hell, us auto journo slobs haven't gotten our greasy mitts on the dang things either. Equally flabbergasting, according to Motor Authority the Phantom Drophead Coupe is sold out through the middle of 2009. And they've already moved 250 of those teakwood-decked convertibles. CEO Ian Robinson also wants you to know that two-thirds of the Phantom Coupe's customers are newbies to the ultra-high end car market. Rolls-Royce is therefore poised to smash last year's sales record of 1,010 units sold. How can we account for such growth? Well, either the rich are getting that much richer, or Rolls is building a highly desirable product that consumers in their target demographic actually aspire to. We're thinking a little from column A, a little from column B. We're also dumping all our Maybach stock, post haste.
