RR Phantom Coupé   The new Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé made its European debut at the Geneva motor show this week. Production of the new model will begin at the company's UK manufacturing plant at Goodwood in the summer.

The two-door, four-seat convertible is a less formal interpretation of classic Rolls-Royce design than its four-door stable mate, the Phantom. Using the lightweight rigidity of an all-aluminium spaceframe, it marries modern technology to a sleek, streamlined convertible body.

Hand-built using the finest quality materials to the exacting standards of Rolls-Royce, the new Phantom Drophead Coupé is exciting customers around the world.

Speaking ahead of the Geneva show, Graeme Grieve, Sales and Marketing Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, "The reaction to the Drophead Coupł has been phenomenal. This year's production has already been allocated and there are currently only a few build slots left in 2008. We are delighted that more than half of the orders are from customers who have never owned a Rolls-Royce before, so the new model is significantly expanding the appeal of our products."
