The Majestic Rolls-Royce Phantom

The Flagship Rolls-Royce

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is the factory’s flagship model. The model first hit the streets in 1925 and has now reached the eighth generation.

Although the predecessor was produced for 13 years, you will not see this extraordinary car parked on every street corner. Something you as a gentleman will be more than grateful for when you have to transport the woman of your life around to shop.

Rolls-Royce’s dedicated Architecture of Luxury

The New Phantom is the first of a new generation of Rolls-Royces to benefit from the creation of the Architecture of Luxury. The Architecture of Luxury has been designed and engineered from the ground up in such a way as to be scalable to the size and weight requirements of future Rolls-Royce models, thus underpinning the long-term future product roadmap.

What’s new in the Rolls-Royce Phantom?

Technically, the car is built on a new and lighter platform. The saved weight of the car has made it possible to use 130 kg of extra noise insulation. This means that the noise level at a speed of 100 km / h is 10 percent lower than in its predecessor.

It is possible to turn the large electronic screen in the instrument panel 180 degrees at the touch of a button.

With the digital instruments set as classic watches from the 1950s, the illusion of a 50-year-old Rolls-Royce is complete. The idea is to make the cabin more timeless.

The most silent motor car in the world

Incalculable effort was expended to create ‘the most silent motor car in the world’ including coating 6mm two-layer glazing all around the car, the largest ever cast aluminium joints in a body-in-white for better sound insulation, and use of high absorption materials.

Acoustic insulation from road noise has been helped by the employment of double skin alloy on areas within the floor and bulkhead of the spaceframe. This is a feature unique to New Phantom. Further noise insulation from inserting dense foam and felt layers between these skins provide sound insulation not witnessed before in the car industry.

In addition, high absorption layers within the headliner, in the doors and in the boot cavity have further aided insulation and reduced reverberation. Rolls-Royce also worked closely with its tyre supplier to invent ‘Silent-Seal’ tyres – which feature a specific foam layer placed inside the tyre to wipe out tyre cavity noise and reduce overall tyre noise by 9db, meaning that conversation within the car is completely effortless.

The Architecture of Luxury, ‘The Gallery’, The Embrace, The Art of Movement, the best possible materials in the world and peerless Rolls-Royce design and engineering; the New Rolls-Royce Phantom resets the benchmark not only as ‘the Best Car in the World’, but as the world’s leading luxury item
