Rolls-Royce has just launched the Phantom Series II, which is set to offer a new ‘light-touch’ visual and aesthetic enhancements after client requests and feedback. Let’s learn more what new changes has been done for the Phantom Series II at below.
Bringing a new expression
Rolls-Royce decided that only subtle change is being made on the new Phantom. Firstly, a new polished horizontal line between the daytime running lights above the Pantheon Grille has been applied to distinguished from its predecessor. Next, the Pantheon Grille receives a minor geometric change to allow the ‘RR’ Badge of Honour and Spirit of Ecstasy mascot more prominent when viewed from the front. The grille is also illuminated like its Ghost sibling. The headlights receives a new intricate laser-cut bezel starlights to match with the Starlight Headliner inside, and adding further surprise and delight to Phantom’s night-time presence.
There are new wheels on the Phantom Series II featuring a 3D, milled, stainless steel wheel with triangular facets is available to commission in a fully or part-polished finish. You also can add disc wheel which is produced in both polished stainless steel and black lacquer, perfectly encapsulating the sense of flight on land.
Darkened chrome grille surround, black bonnet reins, windscreen surround and side frame finishers may now be commissioned after previous Phantom clients requested.
For the interior, Rolls-Royce confirmed that it remains almost unaltered with the exception of the steering wheel has been made slightly thicker for more connected and immediate point of contact for the owner-driver.
The Phantom Series II will consist of two models: Phantom and Phantom Extended. Phantom is now predominantly favoured by the ever-increasing number of clients wishing to be in the driving seat themselves. For those preferring to command the road from the rear seat, Phantom Extended offers the definitive super-luxurious chauffeur-driven experience.
The launch of the latest Phantom also includes the debut of ‘Rolls-Royce Connected’. This enables the owner to send an address directly to the motor car from Whispers, the Rolls-Royce private-members’ Application, providing seamless navigation to an event, restaurant, dealership or even the Home of Rolls-Royce itself.
‘Rolls-Royce Connected’ also displays the motor car’s location, security status and current ‘health’ condition on Whispers; at the touch of a button, the owner can contact a preferred dealership for any servicing requirements or information about the car.
In conjunction of the introduction of Phantom Series II and to illustrate Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke capability, the marque has created a new Bespoke masterpiece, Phantom Platino, named after the silver-white finish of the coveted and precious metal, platinum.
The Phantom Platino’s front seats are finished in fine Rolls-Royce leather, while those in the rear are upholstered in fabric. Meanwhile, the interior has beautiful tone-on-tone thanks to a combination of two differing fabrics; one created in an Italian mill for its durable yet luxurious appearance, the other derived from bamboo fibres, selected for its lustrous finish.
Both materials share an original repeating pattern based on an abstract interpretation of the Spirit of Ecstasy. In the silken textile, the design is smaller and woven into the fabric to create a more visually stimulating finish. It also appears in Phantom’s Gallery, right in the occupant’s line of sight, and on key touchpoints such as the armrest and centre console. The bamboo fabric is embroidered with larger icons, presenting a tufted appearance commonly found in interior design. This more resilient material is placed on the lower elements of the interior where they will need to withstand most contact.
The same design also appears on Phantom’s dashboard timepiece. The surround is made from a 3D printed ceramic, a truly contemporary execution of a traditional material. Set into an iced finish woodset, the tonal properties of the interior take Phantom to a beautiful and unsurpassed level of opulence.
The largest canvas in Phantom is the Starlight Headliner. In a unique design created especially for Rolls-Royce Platino, the ‘stars’ are placed to draw the eye rearwards, with whimsical shooting stars following the sweeping arc of the pattern.
