These are the first images of the new Rolls Royce Phantom, a reference in the world of superlux that has just been renewed after its launch in 2003. It is a brand new car, although it maintains its style with respect to its predecessor , But that offers the latest technology and maximum luxury in a vehicle with which it is speculated that can be around 500,000 euros.
After the purchase of Rolls Royce by the German BMW, it was in 2003 when the legendary British brand launched its first new model, the Phantom, a super-luxury vehicle, a grand saloon descended from some of the most opulent models of the History of the automotive industry.
As far as the Phantom is concerned, the first generation of this emblematic British model was presented by Sir Henry Royce in 1925, and since then always, throughout its evolution, has been the car chosen by kings and chiefs of Been around the world. And for years it has had the best car award in the world.

Aesthetically this new Phantom, the eighth generation of the model, looks very similar to its predecessor due to its exterior style and dimensions, but is actually completely new. The test is that it uses a new platform, much lighter thanks to the use of more aluminum in its construction, new suspensions or a completely renewed direction. The result of all these changes is a marked increase in stiffness.
From the inside I will tell you little because I think it is very easy to see the images of our album and realize better than it can be to travel inside. Just comment a little of the seats, which in Rolls Royce is defined as a Business Class, with two seats configurable in every way with which the two back passengers can travel in full comfort.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing is that the opening of the rear doors is made back, which allows a much easier access to the interior. In addition, the fact that the rear seats are delayed with respect to the pillar of the door gives a differentiating aspect and a better habitability in those later places.
As for its mechanics, it maintains the engine of twelve cylinders and 6.7 liters of capacity with double turbocompressor that provides 571 horsepower. The best thing is that compared to its predecessor, it has gained in driving pleasure, offers more torque to many less laps and has also managed to reduce consumption. Actually a buyer of a Rolls Royce will not be very aware of the consumption although the emissions may make him be a little more careful, because of his image.
When making public the photos of this new model, which will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the British brand has not provided a vehicle data sheet, so no official data measures. Of course, it has already been commented that there will be two body lengths, the normal one that could be around 5.9 meters, and above an elongated body variant that could be placed around 6.25 meters.
