Insurance for Rolls Royce Cars
The takeover of Rolls Royce by BMW in 2003 raised concerns that the UK luxury car manufacturer would lose direction, with new models just becoming "upmarket Beemers". Instead BMW’s influence appears to have been positive, helping Rolls to ramp up technical innovation whilst retaining their world-class reputation for design excellence.
Rolls Royce cars still offer the same quality hand built craftsmanship, luxurious fittings and superb engineering that have made them a British icon.
The successful launch of the Rolls Royce Ghost – a slightly smaller and less expensive version of the Rolls Royce Phantom, is case in point. The UK insurance group for Rolls Royce motor cars is not included in the standard 1-50 banding.
The 6.6 litre V12 engine fitted to the new Rolls Royce Ghost provides near supercar acceleration. Despite its enormous weight (2400Kg) the Ghost completes the 0-60 sprint in just 4.9 seconds and reaches 155mph as a top speed, making it quicker than many top sports cars. Rolls Royce insurance is offered by prestige car insurance companies in the UK including www.directline.com.
Perhaps the most indulgent luxury car on the market, the Rolls Royce Phantom (available as a Drophead Coupe) has massive interior space thanks to an extended wheelbase and an impressive 150mph top speed with 453BHP on tap from a 6.7 litre V12 for effortless 0-60 acceleration of 5.7 seconds. Lavish options on the Phantom even include a rear glass cabinet and DVD/TV movie theatre for rear seat passengers!
