The most fabulous two-door cars in existence.
The Phantom Coupé and Drophead Coupé receive a few minor updates this year. They forgo the previous six-speed automatic transmission for a more-fuel-efficient eight-speed. LED headlights and a 360-degree parking camera system become standard. These two-doors are still sexier and more attractive than the Phantom sedan. The exquisite detailing begins with a stainless-steel hood and windshield frame. Drophead models have a tonneau cover made of teak. The doors are rear-hinged and can be closed with the push of a button. Leather, wood, and chrome are hand-crafted and of matchless quality. If you want to be seen, pick the Drophead. When its canvas top is retracted, bystanders have a clear view of this luscious convertible’s occupants. The Coupé model can simulate the open-air experience, thanks to an optional headliner that twinkles with artificial starlight. A 6.7-liter V-12 provides 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an ultra-smooth eight-speed automatic transmission. The drivetrain can propel the Coupé from rest to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and on to a governed top speed of 155 mph; the Drophead Coupé is limited to 149 mph. Of course, we’d recommend slower velocities so everyone can see you in what might be the most fantastic, most beautiful two-door cars on the planet.
