UK-based Express reports that Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud will present each of the players with the Phantom himself when they return from Qatar. The victory saw the people of Saudi coming to the streets for celebrations, while Arab news suggest that the King announced a celebratory holiday in the country.

So just how much of a big deal is it for Saudi Arabia to win against Argentina? The latter is one of the strongest teams in the championship with both countries separated by 48 places in the world rankings. Argentina is also led by one of the biggest football players in history, Lionel Messi, and is a favourite among the football aficionados the world over. Prior to the win against Argentina, Saudi Arabia had only won three world cup games.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom then, is just the perfect way to show the government’s appreciation for its players. The flagship offering from the marquee British brand is hailed as the epitome of luxury on wheels. The Phantom Series II was unveiled earlier this year. The car packs a 6.75-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine that develops 555 bhp and 900 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The Phantom VIII is quick despite its mammoth size and can sprint from 0-100 kmph in 5.1 seconds.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom comes with an adaptive suspension that aims to deliver the most comfortable ride while the cabin is covered in the best of leather, wood, and metal accents for an opulent feel. It also comes with a host of driver assistance systems. The Phantom is one of the most expensive cars in the world and prices in India are north of 8 crore (ex-showroom) before the customisation options kick in.
