Rolls-Royce releases new teaser images ahead of the official reveal of the Phantom VIII.
In a build up towards its official unveil, Rolls-Royce has revealed new teaser images of its upcoming Phantom VIII. The uber luxury car maker will take the wraps off its all-new flagship model, the Phantom VIII on the 27th of July, 2017.
Rolls-Royce officially stopped production of the Phantom VII in 2016 in preparation of the next generation model. The company had later revealed a teaser image showcasing part of its C-pillar, B-pillar and roof that revealed the new model will not get a revolutionary design change but rather an evolutionary one.
The new Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII will be underpinned by an aluminium architecture that should make the car considerably lighter than its predecessor. The latest teaser images showcased here reveal the trademark tall Rolls-Royce grille with the Spirit of Ecstasy mounted top centre. Around the edges of the grille though you can notice the revision in design surrounding the head lamps. The second image reveals part of the interior trim around the top of the dash board which appears to be an intricately detailed panel of wood with the silent analogue clock located at the centre of the dash.
Rolls-Royce has managed to successfully keep all details about the car to themselves until the very end before the unveil. But we can expect the car to be powered by a V12 petrol engine as always. Reports surrounding the new Phantom to feature four-wheel steering and a hybrid powertrain are expected to become a reality at a later stage from the July 27 unveil.
The unveil will be an exotic exhibition that will showcase eight RR Phantoms from the past in London. Stay tuned for all information about the new Rolls-Royce Phantom at autoX on June 27!
