WESTHAMPNETT, UNITED KINGDOM - The international monthly men's two-letter acronym magazine, GQ, has an army of award-winning writers, concentrating on style, fashion, and culture for gentlemen. GQ is based in New York, New York, releasing its first issue 87 years ago as Apparel Arts, and re-branded as GQ in 1967. Since its launch in 1988 in Europe, GQ, has become the UK's most highly-respected men's magazine, providing material from some of the world's best photographers, and writers. The Rolls-Royce Phantom has received the prestigious GQ Car Awards for offering the ‘Best Supernatural Driving Experience.'
The New Phantom, the quietest automobile in the world, was awarded by an independent judging panel at British GQ, Jason Barlow, one of British GQ’s jurors, said, “The New Rolls-Royce Phantom embodies a number of qualities GQ looks for: as well as being an artful re-imagining of the entire Phantom concept, it also features numerous interior flourishes that are a testament to the unparalleled creativity of the company’s design team. It’s also a magnificently well-engineered motor car in the grand Rolls-Royce tradition. In fact the New Phantom sits somewhere beyond being a mere car, and has become a unique experience.”
The British GQ wrote, “Rolls-Royce’s millennial reboot, the company airily declared back in 2003, was ‘the last great automotive adventure.’ The all-new Phantom doubles down on that and then some – simply put, this beautiful machine does nothing less than reinvent the concept of car travel.”
Torsten Müller Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Our engineers and designers put in incalculable efforts to make the Phantom the most silent car on the road. From its self-levelling suspension, to its noiseless 6.75-litre V12 engine, the Phantom represents Rolls-Royce’s tireless pursuit of perfection and remains a truly dominant symbol of achievement. We are delighted that its supreme levels of refinement have been recognised by British GQ.”
