Rolls-Royce Phantom successor spied

Rolls-Royce Phantom successor spied

Rolls-Royce is getting ready to introduce a successor to the 12-year-old Phantom sedan, its flagship model. Here are some spy shots of the ultra-luxury sedan from the German-owned British brand.

The company’s next flagship, which may not be called the Phantom, appears to be just as big as its predecessor. In terms of looks, it will use similar rectangular headlights along with a squared off front end with a taller grille. The side shows the c-pillar being comparatively thicker than the Phantom.

The ultra-luxury sedan will be considerably lighter because it will feature a brand new modular platform made mostly out of aluminium. The parent company BMW’s vast expertise in the field of carbon fibre will mean the engineers will be able to further reduce weight. Inside sources say that the coupe and convertible variants of the current Phantom will be axed because they haven’t been strong sellers.

Rolls-Royce will continue its tradition and launch its flagship model with a new V12 engine designed with input from BMW. The next Phantom could get a plug-in hybrid drivetrain a little later in its production run.

Rolls-Royce is expected to introduce the Phantom’s successor sometime next year. The Rolls’ upcoming flagship will allegedly carry the same base price of roughly 3,70,000 Euros (Rs 2.7 crore) as the Phantom.
