Starting at Rs 9.5 crore, each Phantom is built bespoke as per the client’s specifications and includes a glass band to display art
Since 1925, the Rolls-Royce Phantom has been the mode of transport for some of the world’s most influential and powerful. Setting a new benchmark in luxury, the new Rolls Royce Phantom takes centre stage in India’s super-luxury arena.
Yadur Kapur, Managing Director for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, New Delhi, and CEO for Select Cars Pvt. Ltd. said, “Phantom is the ultimate mark of success in India, the pinnacle of not just the automotive arena but of the luxury world. There is nothing else like this on the market in India. Phantom combines world-class technology and handcrafted quality.”
The car features cutting-edge innovations like the exclusive ‘Architecture of Luxury’, an all-aluminium spaceframe designed to underpin every future Rolls-Royce. The spaceframe is lighter but still 30% more rigid than its predecessors. Furthermore, the car comes with a next-generation four-corner air suspension system, state-of-the-art chassis control systems, 130 kg of sound insulation, double-laminated glass and dual-skin alloys across the bulkhead of the vehicle.
An all-new, 6.75 litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine delivers an effortless 563 hp and 900 Nm of torque from just 1,700 rpm. The car goes from 0-100km/hour in 5.3 seconds with its 8-speed, Satellite-Aided transmission. The new Phantom is also equipped with the ‘Flagbearer’—a stereo camera system integrated into the windscreen that sees the road ahead and adjusts the suspension proactively.
The headlights are equipped with the latest laser light technology, providing a 600-metre range of light at night.
The main attraction of the car is ‘The Gallery’—a reinterpretation of a motor car’s dashboard and instrument panel area. An application of glass runs uninterrupted across the fascia, a possible space to commission art. The feature has been added with the understanding that the marque’s patrons are increasingly collectors of fine and contemporary art.
Each New Phantom is expected to be bespoke. A Rolls-Royce customer can choose from 44,000 exterior colours and can request personalised designs from the company’s team of bespoke designers.
The Phantom starts at Rs 9.5 crore in India; Phantom Extended Wheelbase will cost you Rs 11.35 Crores, including a four-year service package and regional warranty, 24-hour roadside support. Pricing depends on customer specification, since all Phantoms are built bespoke.
