As the first edition of Rolls-Royce's long-running line of luxury sedans, the Phantom I set the standard for high-end automobiles upon its release in 1925. Famous for its smoothness, speed and reliability, Rolls-Royce's flagship model boasted a level of craftsmanship and a quality of materials that have helped to maintain the Phantom's legendary status into the present day. However, as its name implies, a seat behind the wheel of this classic car can be quite elusive — the going rate for a 1925 Phantom I in today's market is estimated at a cool $1.2 million.
