Video: Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead left topless in the rain


Owning a convertible is ace, especially a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead. You have the freedom to feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face whenever you want. There is a tiny flaw with them, though – when it rains you're a bit stuffed.

Your car will turn form pleasurable driving experience to very expensive bath rather quickly, until you find somewhere to pull over and pop the hood up, that is.
However, if you leave the roof off while you nip into a shop and the weather changes your car could end up like this Rolls-Royce – very, very damp indeed.

Now consider the owner dropped well over £330,000 on this and you should begin to feel his/her pain. It may have been arrogance in thinking the sun would stay out or maybe the roof was only supposed to be down for a few moments while she/he visited a shop. Either way, that Phantom is now a very, very expensive paddling pool. Imagine the repair bill.
