It's the Rolls-Royce of well … Rolls-Royces. A Hong Kong tycoon has placed the single-largest order ever of custom Phantoms to chauffeur uber-rich guests who will stay at his hotel-casino, which is set to open in Macau next year.
Stephen Hung placed the $20 million order for the 30 luxury vehicles for the Louis XIII, which boasts on its website that it will be an "unprecedented, luxurious hotel and entertainment destination." Rolls-Royce Motor Cars helped design the hotel's driveway and will train the chauffeurs on driving and handling of the vehicles. The Rolls-Royce Phantom is the epitome of luxury. Various versions take the top three spots on Autobytel's list of most expensive luxury cars, costing $433,000 to $475,000. The car is hand-built in England. The interior can take weeks to stitch. Its 12-cylinder engine, sourced from parent company BMW, runs a smooth 0-to-60 in less than six seconds.
