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.
