The III is powered by an Aluminium-alloy V12 engine of 447(7.32L), having a bore of 3.25 inches (82.5 mm) and a stroke of 4.5 inches (114.3 mm). It is 7338 cc with 4-speed manual gear.

The car plays an important part in the storyline and can be seen in several scenes. Filmstar Bond’s first encounter with the car is at Stoke Park Golf Club after he beats Goldfinger in a golf match. Bond puts a tracker in the Rolls, which allows him to follow Goldfinger to Switzerland using the advanced tracking device in his Aston Martin DB5 (Note that in the novel Goldfinger (1959, Ian Fleming), the car used by Auric Goldfinger is a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and Bond drives an Aston Martin DB Mark III.) In Switzerland, Bond discovers that Goldfinger smuggles the gold by melting it down and incorporating it into the bodywork of the Rolls, which he takes with him whenever he travels.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom III used in Goldfinger also still exists and has appeared at some recent events and exhibitions. On September 21, 2012, Day 5 of the Bond Blu-Ray Relay Tour, the car returned to Stoke Park and was joined by Bond girls Eunice Gayson (Sylvia Trench in Dr. No and From Russia With Love), Tania Mallet (Tilly Masterson in Goldfinger), and Britt Ekland (Mary Goodnight in The Man With The Golden Gun) and actor Richard Kiel (Jaws). On October 23rd, at the SkyFall World premiere, Bond producer Michael G Wilson arrived in the Rolls at the Royal Albert Hall. The car returned once again to Stoke Park on the first official James Bond Golf Day on June 28, 2013. In 2014, the car is part of the Bond In Motion exhibition in the London Film Museum.
