As a vision of luxury, beauty, success, and achievement, Rolls-Royce became an icon around the world through their brilliant automotive masterpieces. As one would expect, the latest Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II is no exception. Exhaustive efforts have been made to listen to the desires of their discerning clientele, and bring what dreams are made of into reality. All of the elements that made the world fall in love with this vehicle are still present in the Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II, with their focus on raising the monumental bar already set, rather than re-inventing what many would argue was already perfect.
Production began on the Phantom Series II in June; however, you can see that the updates in store have been long in planning. As you approach, you notice visual updates to the grille and newly designed bumpers, polished steel and chrome finishers, new options in wheels and finishes, and as a hint of the technological advances to be seen on the interior, a cutting-edge adaptive LED headlamp system which changes automatically in response to cornering and driving conditions.
Continuing the technological upgrades, inside the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II, you will find further proof that this isn’t just a car, but an extension of its owner. A new, larger, 8.8 inch control centre display and updated audio control panel, smart phone interface capability through standard USB and Aux-in connections, and a 6 disk multimedia changer along with USB connectivity for direct media storage on the system’s hard disk further improve the connectivity between driver and car. Navigating these new systems will feel like second nature with a new rotary controller allowing the driver to easily utilize these functions with one hand and minimal effort. Also standard on all new models in the Phantom family; two front-side cameras, a rear view camera, and 2 top view cameras provide an all-encompassing vantage point with reverse path prediction and obstacle detection through the new control centre display.
Powertrain improvements in the new Rolls-Royce are just as impressive, once again melding luxury and performance seamlessly. A new eight speed gearbox mated to a new rear differential provides improvements in fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions while providing enhanced drive dynamics and maintaining the serene driving experience that is a Rolls-Royce signature. As a welcome addition to those seeking even more performance in ride and handling, a dynamic package is now available in the Phantom to provide sport suspension and transmission tuning, further enhancing the capabilities of this brilliant machine.
This artistic expression of engineering mastery will surely be the epitome of automotive aspiration, and as an added treat, you won’t have to wait long to see it with your own eyes. Launch events are being scheduled for later this year, and we encourage you to check back often as we announce the coming events to experience this masterpiece first hand with Park Place in Dallas.
