Watch a rallying Rolls Royce!

What's the perfect spec for a rally car?  300bhp, 4 wheel drive, 1200kg, straight cut gears?  Nope - the perfect rally car is now a £300,000 Rolls Royce Phantom.

The Phantom's spec sheet doesn't look ideal for rallying - 6.75 litre, V12 with 453bhp via an 8 speed automatic 'box.  Never mind that it's rear wheel drive and weighs 3000kg.

But, as this video demonstrates, it makes for a sensational rally machine.  Sebastian Loeb eat your heart out - this is how to tail slide.
