Established in the car hire industry for over five years, Mr P. Khan decided to take the next step to introduce Europe’s first Rolls Royce Phantom limousine.
Rolls Royce has never built a Phantom limousine, which prompted CEO of Phantom Limo Hire Ltd., Mr Khan to purchase a Phantom from the UK and ship it to Europe to get it modified. Mr Khan explained: “Its unique and something never done before. They basically chopped it in half and converted it into a limousine”.
The Rolls Royce brand generally carry a lot of weight amongst the elite and can cost anywhere from £80, 000 and go up to £200, 000. Undefeated American pro boxer Floyd Mayweather has been named as the second owner of a Rolls Royce Phantom limousine. Mr Khan explains: “Floyd Mayweather is a big time player. He’s got one and I’ve got one. The only difference is, the specifications on my vehicle are better.”
Mr Khan has spent around 7 months working on the car and it has cost him close to £60, 000 for alterations. He explains why: “I can count about 20 Rolls Royce Phantoms around me- they go on hire from as little as £400. Once upon a time, these cars would go out- chauffeur driven- for about £1000 for a wedding. I didn’t want to be competing with so many other companies, so I decided to do this project and set the bench mark for a whole new concept style car.”
Phantom Limo Hire will be targeting the wedding market as well as the corporate clients. “It’s not a party bus. I’ve re-designed it as Rolls Royce would build it,” says Mr. Khan. Wedding hire will start from £1,000.
Nothing mechanically has been modified- just the structure of the vehicle. It seats up to 6 people, whereas traditionally a Rolls Royce only seats two people. The vehicle has bespoke specifications including wifi which can connect up to 6 devices. “It’s got TV screens, mood lighting, a piano black bar and USB ports. You feel like a boss!”
A perfect companion to a red carpet event- without a doubt.
