Feature Flick: Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Gets Stuck in Rain, Gets Soggy

We’re freely going to admit that this video is a bit hard to watch: it’s a clip of a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, with the top down, parked in a rainstorm. Ouch.

We say ouch because the title suggests that this bit of rain could have caused $100,000 in damage to the pricey drop-top. Between the leather on the seats, the wool on the carpets, perhaps a bit of the cashmere lining on the softtop, the 15 Lexicon speakers, and any wood trim, there’s a lot of things on the inside of the car that probably shouldn’t get wet--and a lot of things that did. There’s no telling exactly who the unfortunate owner of this car was, but considering that he/she owns a Phantom Drophead, the repairs may be viewed as a mere drop in the bucket -- although the soggy clothes he would have at the end of a ride home would be annoying.

This being a situation involving a Rolls-Royce Phantom and rain, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that, unfortunately, this Drophead is one (land) yacht that doesn’t get better when you get it wet.

At least the teak decking on the boot will be ok.....sorry about the rest of the interior.
