Images of one of the most iconic models of Rolls-Royce has been revealed. The eight generation of the Phantom has been shown by some images, and it is going to be available by 2023. At first, it looks like this new generation is very similar to the previous one, but the images come with a text that say “a new expression”, so we can expect some changes.
The new car’s physiognomy is very similar to the previous version of this model, but we can see a change in the front end, it gets a horizontal line above the strakes of its Parthenon-inspired grille that the brand has said “it gives a new and assertive modernity, reflecting driver-focused character”. They have responded to those customers that have been demanding for darkened finishes, with the ability to specify a blackened trim for the grille bezel. And the buyer can order two different wheels, one having a milled stainless steel finish, and another inspired by the wheels that the brand used in the 1920s.
The English automaker has not made much mechanical changes, it has the 563-hp twin-turbo V-12 that have characterized this model and have worked so well. Rolls-Royce has said about the style: “Self-evidently, there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Phantom client. Spanning the ‘poles of luxury’, they may be ever-younger or older, modern or traditional, self-made or from long-established wealth. Their commissions reflect a full spectrum of interests and influences. At one extreme, Phantom takes on a subversive, almost rebellious character–youthful, dynamic and daring. At the other, Phantom transforms into an ode to luxury grandeur and timelessness.”
At the moment, the date of the launch of this 2023 Phantom has not been revealed, neither the price, but the 2022 version has been priced in 460,000$, so we can expect this price more or less. Until this new version with those novelties is launched, the Rolls-Royce fans have the 2022 version to get funny.
