Ultimate Christmas Gift: Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
I was recently telling somebody that I didn't think giving somebody a car for Christmas was all that cool. I don't know why, it just seems somewhat impersonal. I mean, it's only transportation; sort of like a washer and dryer are only about doing laundry.
Well, here's a car that is way beyond transportation. And way beyond cool. The 2011 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé is listed at $552,515 (plus that pesky HST). Its features include a crisp Arctic White finish; hand-sewn, fawn brown leather interior; sleek mahogany and teak finishes; rear-hinged coach doors; 21" wheels; and front wing-hidden umbrellas for the west coast rain.
The only place you'll be able to purchase one in western Canada is at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Vancouver. The exclusive car boutique is located at 1717 West 5th Avenue (at Burrard).
If you don't want to go for the Drophead Coupe pictured above, there's the Phantom and the Ghost. The showroom features both new and pre-owned stock.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
