Gas guzzler: Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe

10 big-time gas guzzlers for the 1 percent
2012 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe
  • 2012 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe

  • Price: $408,000
  • Mileage: 11 mpg city/18 mpg highway

Either the sedan or convertible versions of the Phantom could have substituted for the coupe on this list; all post the same mpg numbers. Rolls-Royce is so pleased with the Phantom that it made no changes to it for 2012.

A 453-horsepower 6.7-liter V-12 engine uses an eight-speed automatic transmission to send output to the rear wheels. Getting to 60 mph from a stop requires less than six seconds.

Real wood, yards of supple leather and fancy accents fill the spacious cabin. A multimedia interface, hard-drive navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity are just a few of the creature comforts in this gas guzzler.
