Few months ago Rolls Royce start testing new 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom which marked the beginning of the eighth generation. Only a three month later, we saw a new aluminum architecture and camouflaged interior. The new architecture will significantly reduce the length of the vehicle and to be a pledge for the future other models. In addition to reducing the weight of the new architecture also resilient to extreme weather conditions.
Camouflage is present all over the body which is characteristic of the early stages of testing. However, some things can be seen and it seems that there are no significant deviations from the current model. The biggest change could be the new platform as well as possibly a more powerful engine. Probably from under the hood remains the same W-12 gasoline engine but receive better performance due to platform and maybe more horses and torque. Promotion expect only about 2018. Until when we will inform you about recent news.
2018 Rolls Royce Phantom Spy Shot, Exterior
First look at camouflage vehicle clearly suggests that it is far from beginning manufacturing. On front can notice extremely flat fascia which is a clear bait. Below the headlights missing driving lights while corner vents and air dam also missing details. Seems front are little taller which delivers less downward slant for hood. On back, the rear fascia act also flat without details. Even the exhaust outlets can not notice. Only visible is rear deck lid act more aligns crease inter body and glass. Especially suspicious act taillight which does not face the current. This may be a new baits or redesign existing. The only side view does not indicate any concerns. It is clearly visible traditional Phantom styling with same body lines, glass and mirrors.
2018 Rolls Royce Phantom Interior
Made the first teaser interior image brings covered console, center stack and door panels with black cloth. This is where we expect to see serious progress compared to outgoing generation. But do not expect revolution just evolution of current style. The choice of materials will certainly be increased or it will not significantly affect the functionality. But given that this is a luxury sedan will give it more inside elegance. Perhaps the biggest castle should expect in terms of high technology.
New 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom should include LED ambient lighting, bigger screen and next-generation infotainment system. All-digital instrument cluster should also mark new generation, and maybe same can said for gesture control which began to benefit BMW in their 7 Series. With the new infotainment system will come improved connectivity and more fun for rear passengers. The main competitor would be Bentley Mulsanne.
2018 Rolls Royce Phantom Engine Rumors
The British manufacturer has released to the public exterior and interior teaser image but around the drive units are not advertised. The assumption is that the engine remains the same but to get more. We are talking about 6.7 L W-12 engine with 453 horses and 531 lb-ft of torque. New 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom expect to go around 550 horses and 600 lb-ft of torque. Current motor provides acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) for 5.7 seconds and maximum speed up to 155 mph (250 km/h). Next Phantom generation brings lower acceleration although stay without power bump due to lighter architecture.
