Rolls Royce Phantom Series II goes off-road [video]

Drifting a 5,600 lbs car

The driver of a Rolls Royce Phantom Series II has gone for a little off-road adventure.

When it comes to going off-road, a Rolls Royce is certainly not on the top 10 list but nevertheless in this clip posted on YouTube by TaxTheRich100 we see the recently facelifted Phantom doing just that. He spins, drifts and slides the vehicle as if it were a proper rally car.

The Phantom Series II is powered by a V12 6.75-liter engine that generates 453 hp (338 kW). It can be connected to a 6-speed automatic gearbox from ZF or a new 8-speed auto that lowers fuel consumption by 10 percent. The car weighs a hefty 5,600 lbs (2,540 kg) and has CO2 emissions of 347 g/km.

Thats not a way to treat a Rolls;) If I could afford a Roll Royce i would treat it to a life of luxury hahaha. Like i understand cars are meant to be driven but honestly I would never do this, looks fun though...

Who ever doesnt like what I said should really read properly, and ask yourself if you could afford a Rolls Royce would you do this to your car? No!
