2018 Rolls Royce Phantom interiors spied
It is a well-known fact that the next-gen Rolls Royce Phantom was to receive major updates. The new Phantom has been caught on test well-disguised, but what we have here today is set of spy images emerged on the internet that give us a sneak peek into the interiors of the car. Rolls-Royce calls it the new-gen Phantom VIII and in their words the new model is contemporary, having evolutionary design language and is equipped with cutting-edge technologies. The 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom is expected to debut in 2018.
The first change that can be seen is a smart-looking dashboard having a prominent digital instrument panel. The new Phantom lets go the traditional dials that have been dominating the cabin for ages now, you will instead find a new large screen. Apart from the digitized interior, the new Phantom will be seen flaunting BMW’s technological advancements such as autonomous driving, gesture controlled infotainment systems and many more. Apart from this, the luxury sedan will offer different trim levels, enhanced luxury options and above all numerous customisation options. The outgoing model is based on a steel monocoque platform while the new model runs on the new aluminium spaceframe architecture, which will henceforth underpin all the Rolls Royce models.
The spaceframe platform brings down the kerb weight, increases structural stiffness that leads to better refinement also reducing the ride and noise levels. The Phantom VIII on the exteriors will feature sloping roofline, softer lines and refreshed rear bumper; however the big front grille and signature rear-hinged doors will continue adorning the new model. On the technical front, the luxury sedan will feature the tried and tested V12 engine, a plug-in hybrid borrowed from the to-be-launched Cullinan SUV is expected to add to the line-up. What we are certainly going to miss is the Drophead and Coupe versions which will be killed off with the seventh generation.
