Rolls Royce is one of the top luxury car manufacturers. So much so, that it doesn’t want to be compared to any of the other companies, and doesn’t use the word “facelift” for their new Phantom. Instead, they named it the Series II.
The Rolls Royce Phantom Series II comes in four models: the Phantom Saloon, the Phantom Extended Wheelbase limo, the Phantom Coupe and the Phantom Drophead Coupe Cabriolet.
The most important modification that the British brought to the new Phantom is the new LED position headlights. They are placed under the main headlights as two horizontal stripes, and replace the round fog projectors. Other minor changes to the exterior design are also there, but not worth mentioning.
The engine will remain unchanged, and we will still get the 6.75-liter V-12 that delivers 453 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque. The transmission, however, gets an upgrade. The Phantom Series II has an 8-speed automatic ZF transmission and a new limited slip differential in the rear. The fuel consumption drops by 10%, and CO2 emissions decrease from 385 g/km to 347 g/km.
The interior is fitted with a better human interface thanks to the new 8.8-inch central display, that gives the driver footage taken with the cameras on the outside (in the front, rear, and on the roof), and info from the 3D navigation system.
The base price will be revealed by Bentley soon in Geneva.
