Big-bux hotshots who've missed cruising along the Corniche in a true Rolls ragtop will be just ecstatic to see these photos of the new Phantom convertible. And speaking of Corniche, that model β€” last seen on the forecourt in 2002 β€” was the last convertible Rolls produced, as well the last car built at its Crewe plant built (before BMW took over). Now, the Phantom β€” based on the 100EX Centenary concept the company unveiled in Geneva β€” will be the first BMW-era convertible for the company. Will it live up to the Corniche's hand-built standards? Only the Greenwich, Connecticut Chamber of Commerce will know for sure.
