4 Things To Know About The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom

2018-rolls-royce-phantom-11

The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom has been spotted testing on public roads. This only confirmed that the seventh-generation Phantom, first launched in 2003, is finally on its way to the market.

Here are the things we learned about it based on a report:

1. It Will Have a New Aluminum Spaceframe Architecture

For the 2018 Phantom, Rolls developed an all-new aluminum spaceframe architecture that will be the basis for the entire lineup of the new Phantom.

The British auto company said that architecture is variable in size and ride height because it has to consider a list of other models, which will include coupes, sedans and yes, even an SUV.

The new frame will be lighter than the previous one, which was also an aluminum spaceframe. This means that the Phantom will have better dynamics compared to the outgoing model that weighs over 5,600 pounds.

The new architecture is expected to be considerably lighter than the previous one, also an aluminum spaceframe. Less weight should aid the new Phantom’s dynamics, given that the outgoing model weighs in at over 5,600 pounds.

2. Its Exterior is More Muscular

This new Phantom’s design will be evolutionary because the designers made it more muscular than the current car, and compared also to other models in the same segment. This muscular design is especially obvious at the rear, as well as on the modern touches such as LED headlights (rumored to be laser lights) and front bumper air curtains.

3. Its Interior is the Same as a BMW

Based on the spy shots, the interior elements of this new Phantom are test units similar to the BMW Group parts bin. The round air vents and leather-bound lower center console, however, are new items.

4. It Will Not Have a Hybrid Model

Because of it will have less weight, Rolls will be setting aside plans of an expected plug-in hybrid model, which would have to feature a large battery.
