Rolls-Royce Motor Cars launched the Phantom Series II in India. Phantom Series II is the latest evolution of the pinnacle, super luxury car, first launched in 2003 establishing itself as the benchmark for the segment. Today, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars continues to embrace the finest principles of its founding father, Sir Henry Royce who famously urged employees, “to take the best that exists and make it better”.
The Phantom family has been thoughtfully updated with contemporary yet timeless design enhancements that frame the introduction of cutting-edge technologies which significantly improve the car’s drive-train, ease-of-use and connectivity.
Rolls-Royce now offers fully-LED headlamps as standard for Phantom Series II. As well as delivering a characteristic whiter light, augmenting safety and preventing driver tiredness, these allow for the introduction of new technologies that better control lighting.
Curve light functionality, for example, uses electronically-controlled reflectors to focus headlamp beams in the direction of travel, providing greater illumination of the road ahead when cornering. Adaptive headlamps change the cone of light projected onto a road – effortlessly of course – in response to different driving speeds.
New driver assistance technologies and a modern user interface with re-designed multi-media controller, have been designed for Phantom Series II. new driver assistance technologies and a modern user interface with re-designed multi-media controller, have been designed for Phantom Series II.
Front, rear and top-view camera systems further augment ease of manoeuvring. When reverse parking, for example, rear path prediction automatically deploys on the screen.
A new 8-speed automatic gearbox and rear differential enhance already exemplary driving dynamics perfectly complementing the V12 direct injection engine. Fuel consumption improves by 10 per cent on the combined cycle and, as a result, CO2 emissions fall from 388 to 347 g/km.
Phantom is considered the ultimate automotive canvas for the Rolls-Royce bespoke programme. A selection of 44,000 external paint hues, limitless wood veneer options, leather styles and colours are available – allowing for personalisation that is practically endless.
A team of bespoke designers, along with talented craftsmen and women, produce cars that are ‘built to order’ by Singaporean customers. 90 percent of all Rolls-Royce Phantoms that come to the Asia-Pacific region are bespoke.
