Rolls-Royce Motor Cars launch the new Phantom in France today at the 2004 Paris Motor Show exactly 100 years after the first Rolls-Royce made its debut at the Paris Salon of 1904.

Karl-Heinz Kalbfell, Chairman and Chief Executive of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, 'We are delighted to announce the opening of a new showroom in such a wonderful city. Rolls-Royce has a long and celebrated history in France, and we are particularly pleased to be able to announce our new Paris dealership during our celebrations of 100 years of the marque.'

Featuring as part of the standard specification of the Euro 75 million luxury yacht Utopia, the Phantom is carried on the helipad, lifted into position by the yacht's own crane. For longer sea passages or during inclement weather the Phantom has a fully enclosed garage in the bow of the vessel.
