you join me in the back of a rolls-royce phantom we’ve picked up this extended wheelbase than the Goodwood Factory and we’re heading to West squee in their rolls-royce owners go in the Windsor portion of our France and we’re doing it properly like a Rolls Royce owner would or as they’re known in the brand a patron of luxury so I’m dressed like an oligarch son the booze cabinet is full and I have a chauffeur because I’m pretty sure that being back here is the way to travelling to see go up straight to ecstasy go down he’d go up now Rowan has this all wrong because if you own a phantom you want to drive the fact only drive is too crude a word for what you do in a phantom you fingertip it this is such a genteel Placid calm car that you never think about anything so crude as ride and handling instead you just sit here the time passes of distance party and then you get to wherever you’re going and you’re just as you were at the start so we’re a couple of hours in now and I am still fresh as a daisy the Phantom has always been the Nexus of luxury and basically the death star of opulence and there is so much back here to keep you entertained under this gorgeous wood paneling I have all the controls to my entertainment press this punt and the table lowers and then the screen pops out so I can watch films do some buying on QVC check my stocks and shares I can also do it while having a cigar if I choose or getting drunk whiskey down here or special occasions champagne your divorce has gone through you succeed in a new business you bought an island or something if you’re in a Rolls Royce you’ve kind of made it especially an extended wheelbase oh thanks oh but if you want a ball in the big leagues you define four-spoke something unique and we have that see we’re the only people in the world who fit as a ski rack to the back of a rolls-royce phantom and not just any ski rack but a ski rack that can hold a pair of 50,000 pound speeds after eight thousand year old Chinese BOGO and 24 karat gold bindings because it’s a rolls-royce and we’re going to cost about so we’ll see you on the slopes row and connect the rich kid in the back all he likes but it doesn’t change the fact that they don’t do first-class toilets at French service stations Rouen that’s disgusting yes we can’t take him anywhere so with 500 miles in now and a long way from Goodwood this morning and the Eurotunnel and I’ve had a long time to think and I am still in the best seat in the Rolls Royce because there’s a hundred thirty kilos of sound deadening around me six millimeters double glazing it is so quiet elegant and relaxing and while all he’s been doing a bit of this and a bit of this with his feet I’ve been chilling out I’ve read a newspaper about money I bought some Bitcoin completed candy crush across the continent that’s efficiency and oh you can’t do that behind the wheel can you so you want to be here so of course Val that was 15 hours in the back of the car which I think in any other car on the world I’ve been pretty much dead by now but it is incredibly comfortable I feel amazing relaxed for it we’re in the Six Senses in course around which is where all greasy type people’s stay at this time of year apparently so I’m gonna go do rolls-royce e type people things I think that means raclette and maybe some wine oli clean the car please the next morning I thought I’d do a bit of shopping unbelievably there are nearly as many diamond shops and course from our ski shops but there’s also the lalana hotel so on the most luxurious places to stay but also doubles up as a rolls-royce pop-up shop all you got to do is swing in choose your spec whether you want the 20 grand hamper sign a big cheque and you bought yourself a rolls-royce for people already have this week right that is quite enough shopping for one day time to go for a drive now there are thousands of corners around here and that every single one of them you sort of have to prepare the rolls-royce sorry rolls-royce for what’s coming so way before you even get to a corner you find yourself applying just a little bit of steering lock just to give it fair warning and to get the car ready then when you do get to the corner and turn in something quite surprising happens you discover that actually has a really good grip and holds its line quite nicely that’s a surprise what’s less of a surprise is that there is very little steering feel and the steering is very very light I wouldn’t say this is exactly fun to drive but it is quite satisfying hustling it up a difficult road satisfying but maybe not very becoming we’ve probably had enough of this Rouen isn’t it about time you went and had a skip while cruising around on my planks of ancient Chinese Babak I had time to think over what can only be described as a first world problem see if you have spent over half a million quid on your new rolls-royce phantom where do you sit in it well to be honest with you it doesn’t matter if we’re in the front or the back it’s such an exquisite and well engineered piece of luxury that it’s just a joy to be around just in this cabin soaking it all up as for the lifestyle unfortunately I’ve got to paint that in but not for one more little tree fancy race back to London Olli you
