Rolls Across South America Mini-series Ends Without A Hitch

By Gunnar Heinrich

SOME writers just get all the cool gigs.

CAR magazine’s Jeremy Hart and Setanta TV presenter Warren Pole have concluded an epic, yes, epic 14 day, 5,000 mile voyage across Argentina to Chile and back again in a Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Taking some great pics and doubtless some awesome memories, it seems that the Rolls worked its imperial magic on the journalisti.

“Clearly, the Rolls limo is a most comfortable way to cross a continent, but then we could have told you that at the start. More impressive was just how pampering it was, the reaction it sparked, the depth of engineering and thought that’s gone into it. Such qualities don’t necessarily bare themselves on a short test drive. We absolutely loved it,” Mr. Hart wrote.

He also explained that not once in more than 5,000 miles of driving through various climates, mountain ranges, and the roughest roads possible, did the Phantom suffer so much as single technical glitch.

  1. I think the Phantom is just sensational. Mind you, at over $AU1million a piece, it wouldnt want to break down…
