Rolls-Royce has revealed the New Phantom, A £350,000 work of automotive art. The Flagship Rolls-Royce Phantom is designed to whisk the world’s wealthiest around in near silence. Inside, passengers can recline in the height of luxury, surrounded by high gloss and ‘exquisitely tactile’ wood. Its powerful all-new 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine gives a top speed electronically restricted to 155mph. The new Rolls-Royce Phantom also has sports car acceleration, getting from 0-62mph in just 5.3 seconds.
The quietest and most technically advanced Rolls-Royce Phantom ever was launched in London last month. The new Phantom also paves the way for a future all-electric Rolls-Royce, ready to comply with Government moves to ban the sale of new ‘conventional’ petrol and diesel vehicles from 2040.
The launch was hailed as another big vote of confidence in Britain – with the big Roller exported around the globe and considered the pinnacle of British automotive craftsmanship
Bosses at Rolls-Royce’s parent company BMW – which earlier this week announced they were building an electric Mini in the UK – said the new Phantom demonstrated that they remain ‘fully committed to the future of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’, based at Goodwood, in West Sussex.
