Johnny English Reborn Phantom V16 Coupe comes to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manchester
The true star of Johnny English Reborn is available to view at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manchester from 23rd-29th November 2011!
We are delighted to annouce that the Johnny English Rolls-Royce V16 Phantom Coupe will be available for public viewing at our showroom on Manchester Road, Knutsford from Wednesday 23rd to Tuesday 29th November.
In a recent interview, Rowan Atkinson spoke about the car and said, ‘All filming is smoke and mirrors and we could have put a plastic cover on to make it look like a V16, but I thought that wasn’t the way to go. Rolls-Royce didn’t want to do that either because it smacks of a lack of integrity. I asked them if they would be so kind and they got the engine out and put it in the car.’
When talking about the performance of the car and how it was to drive, Rowan said, ‘Unbelievable it reminded me of that old cliché, it’s like the Hand of God has grasped the back of the car and gone, “Whoosshh…”’
You can come and visit the showroom to look at this showstopping car and our other beautiful motor cas from the Rolls-Royce model range Monday-Friday 9am-5pm or on Saturday 9am-1pm.
