Rolls Royce is a brand with sheer luxury and ultimate grandeur. Placed well under the BMW Group, it is the all-new Rolls Royce Phantom that is all set to catch all the eyes around. The 8th generation Rolls Royce Phantom is unveiled and you’re probably at the right place to know more about it.
In terms of technology, this new Rolls Royce Phantom would be the most advanced Rolls Royce till date. It gets a double wish-bone front axle and a Self-Leveling Air Suspension minted with the Five-link rear suspension. The new Phantom can adjust the stiffness according to road conditions ahead with a new camera technology. Also, the car has Quad-Wheel Steering which controls movement of all the tyres as per the rotation of steering wheel.
With even more increase in sound insulation, the ambient noise transmittance to cabin has decreased a lot. The doors could be shut down right from outside with just a swipe on door handles. This technology is much different than the ongoing one in which users have to press a button from inside to shut the doors. This new features is termed as “The Embrace” as per the Rolls Royce nomenclature.
The new Rolls Royce Phantom is underpinned by an indigenously designed aluminum space-frame. This new technology provides upto 30% more rigidness to the new vehicle as compared to the ongoing version of the vehicle. The new Phantom stretches close to 20-feet in overall length in the extended-wheelbase version.
It is powered by a new 6.75 Liter V12 engine that is majorly updated too. This Engine now churns out 565 Bhp and 900 Nm of peak torque. This V12 motor is mated to a 8-Speed ZF gearbox which is guided via satellite. What this means is that the gearbox and vehicle will react accordingly as per the road conditions ahead.
Moreover, out of many unique features to look-out for, one thing that caught our eye was the “Gallery”, which is a single piece of glass that spreads across the length of the dashboard. The Gallery is highly customizable. For the driver, it shows the driving data and the instrument cluster. Coming to the center, the Gallery sports a massive 12.3” HD TFT screen which is retractable. The opposite end of the Gallery can be customized and designed as per your needs.
