Ultimate Luxury - The new Rolls-Royce Phantom
|   Sunday, September 03, 2017
Well, now we know one thing for sure: there are luxury cars and there is Rolls-Royce Phantom.
The new Phantom is the most opulent car in the 92-year history of the model. Its predecessor was released in 2003 and kept on the market for 14 years and it seemed that nothing could overcome it. And now the new Phantom just raised the bar even higher, at an unattainable level by competitors.

The new Rolls-Royce Phantom is built on a new aluminum platform, which will be the basis for all the new models that will be launched in the future.
Thanks to it, the new Phantom is lighter and the body is 30 percent more rigid.

The pneumatic suspension has been revised to provide complete comfort, thanks to the millions of calculations it makes in a second and thanks to the new stereo camera that “sees” the road misalignment and adjusts the suspension accordingly at speeds of up to 100 km / h.
This chassis will be found under all the new models of the company (even under the new SUV), leading to an improved driving dynamics on every Rolls-Royce. Still, do not think that if using an aluminum chassis, the Phantom becomes a slender sedan. In the expanded version, the car is more than 6 meters long, almost 2 meters wide and weighs over 2,700 kg.

Rolls-Royce has made sure that the new Phantom is the world's quietest car. The measures taken in this regard are impressive. The windows have 2 layers and a thickness of 6 mm, and each copy of Phantom is equipped with 130 kilograms of soundproofing material. Certain areas in the structure, such as the floor, include a 2-layer alloy, between which foam and insulating materials have been introduced. Rolls-Royce has ordered special tires for the Phantom, which reduce the rolling noise by up to 9 db because they have a layer of foam inside. The result is a 10 percent quieter machine than the previous model.

The majestic Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII includes, in terms of quietness and supreme refinement, a new V12 with a displacement of 6.75 liters. Unlike former V12, the new engine is supercharged with two turbines. It delivers 563 hp (420 kW), and a massive torque of 900 Nm, available from 1,700 rpm.
The engine's resources are controlled by a 8-speed ZF transmission, which also benefits from satellite assistance (which means that it pre-selects the right gear depending on the information received from the navigation / GPS system).

For now, the British builder does not give us figures on the performance of the limousine. Instead, the media present at the launch of the new model cites a starter 0 to 100 km / h in 5.3 seconds for the standard-wheelbase version and 5.4 seconds for the long wheelbase variant.
The 12.3-inch multimedia display system is retractable, and appears in the middle of that spectacular board. The new Phantom is also the most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce in history, with four video cameras offering panoramic visibility around the car.

Also we have a 7x3-inch head-up display, WiFi hotspot, the latest navigation system, Night Vision and Vision Assist, Active Cruise Control and autonomous braking system with pedestrian detection.

The price of the new Rolls-Royce Phantom can easily reach 1 million dollars, because of the different options and works of art inside. Only customer imagination can limit this Rolls-Royce's posibilities.
