Last February we saw the final unit of the seventh-generation Rolls-Royce Phantom roll out from the factory. This means the eight-generation Phantom is underway, with the launch expected in no less than a month’s time.
Prior to launch, Rolls-Royce dropped two hints of its latest luxury barge: the iconic front grille and signature “Spirit of Ecstasy”. Another image reveals the dashboard with an analogue clock right in the middle.
The new Phantom rides on an all-new aluminium architecture, which means it will be inherently lighter compared to its predecessors. It could get the same V12 engine as the Dawn and will feature four-wheel steering.
The new Phantom will be showcased alongside its predecessors at the “The Great Eight Phantoms” event in Mayfair on 29 July.
