Written by David Ross on

Rolls-Royce may be owned by BMW, but the Phantom is both individual and feels every inch the pinnacle of British-built luxury. Its appearance is certainly imposing - indeed it's too heavy-handed for some - but it travels with an unmatched elegance and style. It's a 'motor car' in the great Rolls-Royce tradition with a long list of options with which to personalise the vehicle, it has a surprising turn of speed and can be controlled with a level of precision that belies its size.

If you want the best car in the world - and can afford it - we couldn't argue against choosing a Phantom.
