2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom

• Phantom is the most enduring name in Rolls-Royce’s history, with the first Phantom Is rolling out of the factory nearly a century ago. Typically, Phantoms are the largest and most luxurious cars in Rolls-Royce’s catalogue, and in certain eras the company would only sell Phantoms to its most distinguished clients.

• The Phantom is currently in its eighth generation, which was introduced in 2017 and is still considered among the very best luxury automobiles on sale today. This 2020 model, located in Vancouver, Washington shows just 31 miles (50 km) on its odometer and is finished in two-tone Midnight Sapphire and Silver with a contrasting interior of Seashell and Navy Blue.

Design

• The Phantom VIII's styling has been described as an evolution of the Phantom VII's as it bears most of the design features of its predecessor. Like its predecessor, the Phantom VIII has a short front overhang and upright front end, a long bonnet and set-back passenger compartment as well as a long wheelbase and a flowing rear end. It also uses rear-opening "coach doors". For the first time on a Phantom, Rolls-Royce's trademark "Parthenon" radiator grille is integrated into the surrounding bodywork.

• The interior is fully bespoke and personalised to the clientele like previous and current Rolls Royce models offer. It has the BMW iDrive infotainment system with 3D camera view. They also have "The Gallery", a display section in the vehicle in the front seat veneer with experimentation of different materials and artwork to be integrated with the vehicle and all the options are limitless.

Performance

• Prodigious power is provided by a silken 563-hp twin-turbo V-12 paired with an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive. Acceleration is brisk, but Rolls-Royce's claimed 5.1-second zero-to-60-mph time isn't anything you'd appreciate your chauffeur trying to replicate. The Phantom is better suited to easing along lazily; delicate inputs to throttle and steering are what it likes best.

• To say that the ride is smooth would be an understatement—imagine being carried aloft on a fluffy cloud. The Phantom practically levitates over the road; it features a pothole-spotting camera that helps the suspension adapt to road imperfections in real time. It's a library-quiet, sensory-deprivation cocoon.

Production

• The Phantom is assembled by hand at Rolls-Royce's plant in Goodwood, West Sussex, England.[39] Customer deliveries commenced in January 2018.[40][41] According to own Statement of BMW AG, Rolls Royce and similar institutions, this generation of automobile with combustion engine has a preview to an end until 2030, due the company only producing electric models.[42]
