Rolls-Royce. The pinnacle of the Luxury Automotive world for over 100 years. The Phantom. The long standing Flagship car for the famed brand. For the last 13 years the seventh generation phantom as remained the king of luxury sedan platform. As with other great icons, this one needed to evolve. Enter the Phantom 8. A car built in your image, not for your image.
The new phantom takes everything that made its predecessor a legend, and made it better. The 6.75-liter, V12 turbocharged engine now puts out 563bhp, and will reach 60mph in 5.3 seconds. Upon reaching that speed this generation Phantom is 10% quieter thanks to sound dampening and tighter body lines.
This will also likely be the smoothest car on the road. Aided by the following,
1. A Rolls ZF 8-speed gearbox aided by satellite makes impeccable shifts at any speed.
2. A 100-percent original and new chassis designed and engineered to sustain the exact weight (5,862 pounds for the short wheelbase; 5,948 pounds for the longer version) and motion of the Phantom VIII, which improves propulsion, traction, and, by 30 percent, the car’s overall rigidity.
3. Four-wheel steering similar to that of a new Lamborghini, which increases agility and stability around corners.
4. A complex camera system that automatically adjusts the suspension for the road ahead.
One of the most important evolutions is the design. With new modern touches both inside and out, this feels like a fresh take on a familiar icon. But enough talk of specs. We’ll let the photo’s do the talking. If you have interest in commisioning your own Phantom 8, you can contact any of the three O’Gara Rolls-Royce Locations, Beverly Hills, La Jolla and Westlake.
There are two size options available for the Phantom 8. Standard as well as Extended wheel base.
