If you haven’t gotten around to watching Iron Man 2, we suggest you do so at the soonest possible time. Not only was it awesome in every sense of the word, but it’s also the only movie - as far as we can remember - that actually got away with destroying not just one Rolls Royce Phantom, but two of those luxury cars. Yeah, we can imagine the brand’s founders rolling around in their graves right now.

This is an especially bitter pill to swallow given that a) each car costs a staggering $438,000, and b) Rolls Royce Phantoms are built by hand from the ground up. Just imagine if you were one of those people who spend your nights burning the midnight oil to build a Phantom and some movie just ends up destroying it, including one that was literally cut to pieces, for entertainment purposes.

You wouldn’t feel too good either.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

They really crushed it into pieces! I don’t know how much it would cost to destroy such kind of vehicles.

I agree, so what are they going to do with the Phantoms? Are they going to send this to the scrap yard?

I believe this only a garbage to all of the expenses and they destroy on the Iron man 2 movie, so I guess this is already paid but regret this sweet and lovely royce phatoms.

Well, I guess with the Iron Man 2 success the cost of two phantoms are well paid off.
