Those words, "the best car in the world", are now seen as prophetic, and remain linked to Rolls-Royce to this day. Of all the Rolls-Royces ever made by engineering genius Henry Royce, none can be more deserving of that title than his masterpiece, the Phantom II Continental.
By 1925 the Silver Ghost chassis, designed in 1906, had almost reached the limits of its development, but a new chassis had not been built so the car was upgraded by the installation of a new engine and christened the New Phantom. The six-cylinder overhead valve engine was similar in many ways to Rolls-Royce‘s other current model, the Twenty, but was of 7,668 cc
