The Phantom V was an ultra-exclusive Rolls-Royce model from the 1960s. A total of 516 were made. The engine was a 90 degree V8 with a capacity of 6,230 cc and twin SU carburetors with a 4-speed automatic transmission. The car had drum brakes and a wheelbase of 3,683 mm. The Phantom V was in production from 1959 until 1968, based on the Silver Cloud II sharing its V8 engine and the automatic gearbox of General Motors Hydramatic design. From 1963 onward the 7% more powerful Silver Cloud III engine was fitted and new front wings incorporating quad headlamps were feature of later models too.
Other famous owners included Queen Elizabeth II, one of whose models can now be viewed in the special garage aboard HMY Britannia in Leith, Edinburgh, and her mother, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Those owned by Elizabeth II were official state cars, adapted for that purposed with a flag staff and illuminated heraldic shield above the windscreen.
