How To Drift A Rolls Royce
I had the opportunity to drift a Rolls Royce Ghost during an event that was
being put on with several Ferrari owners. I was asked by Rolls Royce of NA
if i could drift the Ghost to put on a show for the group. The video was
taped by a friend who was watching. I was afforded no practice runs before
the demonstration, and this was my first time driving a Rolls Royce Ghost.
The car drives fantastic for its size and weight. It was one of the most
fun experiences I've had driving a car. I put the video together with
background music because there really wasn't much to hear. The car runs so
quiet, you couldn't hear engine noise. And the tire screech was just that,
tire screech, not too impressive.
In the video, the first full slide through the corner was just that, my
first attempt. Then at the end of the video is part of my second attempt. I
only did these two passes, then we parked it.
The approach speed to the corner was roughly 75mph, I know, it doesn't look
like it, but it was. To initiate the drift all it took was heavy braking,
this took some of the speed off, and transferred weight to the front of the
car, taking it off the rear tires making it easier to spin. Them. An
aggressive turn of the steering wheel to the left, about 1/4 turn, and put
the throttle to the floor and she started to slide. Steer the steering
wheel to the right to catch the slide, eyes ahead, foot to the floor and
ride it out. At the end of the video you will see, if you watch closely,
that I actually threw the car into the next right hand turn too :-) but it
was out of video range.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a saloon automobile made in England by
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a BMW subsidiary. It was launched in 2003 and is
the first model introduced during the BMW era. The Rolls-Royce Phantom
Drophead Coupé, and the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, are both based on the
2003 Phantom. It also won the Top Gear Car of the Year Award for 2003.

Car has a power reserve dial indicating how much of the engine's power
is left available to the driver. This is to provide a sense of tremendous
power in reserve, and to hide "crude" underlying mechanicals from its
owners. The instrument cluster is not shared with any other vehicle. Doors
are remote operated.
The rear doors are rear-hinged, a style commonly referred to as suicide
doors, but called 'coach doors' by Rolls-Royce. Because of the rear-seating
position in relation to the rear inner-door handles, buttons are mounted on
both C-pillars which operate hydraulic motors in order to close the rear
doors. An electronic lock prevents the doors from being accidentally opened
when moving. The car will automatically brake to a walking speed if a coach
door remains open when driving off. The rear doors also house umbrellas
that are stored within the doors, and can only be accessed when the front
or rear doors are open. The fabric of the umbrella is coated with Teflon to
assist in shedding water when the wet umbrella is stored within the door.
The traditional Spirit of Ecstasy ornament has an automatic electronic
retraction mechanism to prevent theft and protect pedestrians in the event
of an accident. It may also be retracted by the driver at the touch of a
button, and retracted when the alarm is armed. The base contains a sensor
which detects movement, and will retract if tampered with.
The 'RR' logos on each of the wheel hubs are independent bezels in
order to always remain upright while the wheel is rotating.
