Rolls-Royce and off-road, this does sound a bit awkward and unusual! If you can afford to a Rolls-Royce why don’t you buy an SUV for the off-road. However, everyone doesn’t think in the same way!
Some people recently inspired by the Rolls-Royce’s heritage and decided to go off road with Phantom II. Regarding to the heritage, Rolls Royce cars in early 1920s were driven off road and some were turned into tanks. However, at those times everywhere can be considered as off road, so it is not a very good representation of ideal terrain for Rolls-Royce.
Owner of this Rolls-Royce Phantom II pushed the limited on wet grass for an off road experience. Wet grass is one of the most slippery surfaces a car can face. Literarily, there is no traction at all and any electronic gadget became useless. Despite this fact, Rolls-Royce owner wasn’t bothered with this problem and did some serious off road! By the way, Phantom II did a great job despite its weight very close a public library :)
Rolls Royce Phantom II is powered by 6.75-lt V12 engine with 460 HP and 720 Nm of torque. The engine is coupled with 8-speed automatic gearbox and there is no equipment for off road driving, except traction and stability controls. And the Rolls-Royce Phantom II weights 2,6 tones!
