Rolls-Royce has refreshed the eight-generation Phantom with new tech and equipment updates. Called the Phantom Series II, the refreshed luxury sedan gets subtly updated exteriors, new wheels, and a longer list of bespoke options and features. It’ll also be available with an extended wheelbase variant, and a new Phantom Platino version will also be on offer. 

What’s new in the Phantom Series 2?

The facelifted Rolls-Royce Phantom gets an illuminated front grille and the new Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament. The grille is now visually smaller – it features a straight horizontal chrome strip at the top edge that separates it from the body-coloured bonnet top. The headlights are the same as before, but they feature laser-cut “stars” that give the same effect as the star light headliner inside the car.

While the overall shape and size of the vehicle remain identical, the Phantom Series 2 sports a new set of steel wheels with a triangular design and milled, 7-spoke effect.

Alternatively, buyers will get to opt for a full disc wheel that resembles the Rolls-Royce luxury cars of the 1920s.

Inside, the Series 2 Phantom features a similar layout as the Phantom VIII introduced in 2017. But Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective has made it even more of a blank canvas for specially chosen intricate design elements, trim and upholstery options. Another subtle change is the steering wheel that’s now slightly thicker for better grip.

Rolls-Royce has also given the Phantom an updated Rolls-Royce Connected suite for connected car features. The features that include location, health status and security status can be accessed using the Whispers smartphone app. The app also allows users to easily contact Rolls-Royce support and get updates on upcoming events.  

As before, the Phantom is powered by a 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 petrol engine that makes 571PS and 900Nm.

The Series 2 Phantom will be available in an ultra-luxury, bespoke Phantom Platino variant equipped with fabric interiors. That’s right – the carmaker is moving on from leather to explore different materials that are even more luxurious. Only the front seats will be upholstered in “Rolls-Royce fine leather”. The rear seats feature two different fabrics, one from an Italian mill, and the other derived from bamboo fibres.

Going with the white and silver theme, the Phantom Platino will offer a bespoke dashboard clock with a surround made from 3D printed ceramic. The headliner will still have a night-sky effect, but it’ll have shooting stars that flow in an arc from the front of the cabin to the rear to draw attention to the rear of the car.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Series 2 is expected to be launched in India later this year. It’ll likely command a premium over the current Phantom eight, with a price tag upwards of Rs 10 crore (ex-showroom).
