After remaining dormant for a decade, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars launched the seventh generation Phantom in 2003. It was the first new Rolls-Royce introduced after BMW assumed control of the brand from Volkswagen Group in what was one of the most bizarre business deals in recent memory.
Rolls Royce, the iconic British carmaker that is now owned by BMW, unveiled the latest version of its most luxurious car, the Phantom.
Instead, engineers concentrated on the all-new aluminium spaceframe platform which underpins the new model. This platform will also be used on every future Rolls-Royce, the company says. It’s around 30 per cent more rigid than the platform on the predecessor, helping with ride, acoustic comfort, interior space, and driving dynamics.
And you won’t have any issues cruising along, being pushed where you’re going by a 6.75 litre V12. So very Rolls Royce.
It’s safe too, and high tech, with lane guidance warnings, pedestrian alerts, night vision, all round camera and so very much more.
