All-new Rolls-Royce Phantom spotted testing

All-new Rolls-Royce Phantom spotted testing

The all-new Phantom is slated to arrive by 2018 and Rolls-Royce has already put the new car to rigorous testing. The camouflage seems to be reducing a bit revealing more about the new Rolls luxury limousine.

The Roman front grille is not going anywhere but it seems to lean back by whisker. The grille though is equally big and imposing. The front bumper gets a sporty touch especially with the inverted-L like slit that splits the air dam into two. The lower half gets honeycomb mesh grille across the face. The horizontal LED strips on the Series II have probably been given a miss. Which means the headlamps might get a more prominent LED signature than the current Phantom.

With heavy camouflage on the sides intact, it would be difficult to comment on the changes. The prominent shoulder line that starts from above the headlamps all the way to the tail lamps will be carried forward. While it is evident from the pictures that the rear is squatting, we still feel the shoulder line runs lower near the boot as compared to the Series II. The new contour that goes low takes us back to the Phantom and the Silver Cloud from the 60s and we love it. 

While the overall look of the Phantom will not change drastically, there will be small tweaks all around. The biggest change would be underneath the skin with the new aluminium infused space frame chassis that will debut with the new Phantom. The car would certainly be lighter but will offer better ride and handling.
