The Abu Dhabi police fleet has recently added a brand new ride to the already impressive collection, a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Besides the Dubai Police force, which is already using some very expensive and rare supercars which include the Bugatti Veyron, the Aston Martin One-77, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and vehicles such as the Lamborghini Aventador, the Audi R8, the Nisan GT-R, the Ferrari FF, the BMW M6 GranCoupe, the Bentley Continental, the Lexus RC F and even a Renault Twizy, the Abu Dhabi one is not negligible either. Now, the car lineup is getting even larger with the addition of a brand new Rolls-Royce Phantom, which will be displayed in the most important touristic attractions in the city and it won’t really be used as a police car.
The current generation of the Rolls-Royce Phantom has been in production for the last 12 years, in the same form, since 2003. This is produced in the Goodwood plant, Chichester, West Sussex, England, and it is offered in three body styles, a coupe, a sedan and a drophead coupe (convertible). The Phantom is the first model introduced during the BMW era and rumor has it that it will receive a replacement by the end of the decade. The Phantom has a 6,75 V12 engine under its hood, which is capable of producing a total output of 454 HP (338 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission signed by ZF.
