Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown made a huge entrance to kick off the team's official 2015 activities at training camp. Brown pulled up to Steelers camp, which takes place at Saint Vincent College, in a custom Rolls-Royce Phantom worth $500 thousand!
The black Phantom features a yellow stripe down the middle and a huge rendition of Brown's signature on the side. A Steelers logo is featured on both the driver's and passenger's side mirrors and the car also has a custom grille. The Phantom's color wrap was designed by 3M Graphics and installed by Wrap Colors.
Brown pulled up in this promotional loaner from Rolls-Royce and waited a few minutes before he got out to build up the drama of who was inside. The car was driven by Antonio's brother, but we cannot confirm if he was blasting the song "Black and Yellow" by Wiz Khalifa or not. Brown said that he arrived in the car as "something fun" to kick off training camp.
Antonio Brown led the NFL in both receptions and receiving yards last season. Although he had to give the car back to Rolls-Royce, Brown should be able to afford almost any luxury car he wants after he signed a five year, $42.5 million contract with the Steelers in 2012. He has been a beast on the field and holds records for being the first NFL player to have 1,000 yards returning and receiving in a season and for being the first NFL player to have at least five catches and 50 receiving yards in 32 consecutive games. Brown was also ranked #8 in the 2015 Top 100 Players in the NFL.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a flagship model for the luxury car company and was named Top Gear Car of the Year in 2003. It features a 6.75 liter V12 engine that can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.9 seconds, which may or may not be faster than Brown. Special editions of the Phantom include the Centenary Edition, 80th Anniversary Edition, Pininfarina Hyperion, Spirit of Ecstasy Centenary Collection, Year of the Dragon Collection, and Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection, and now the Antonio Brown Black and Yellow edition.
