The new Rolls-Royce Phantom has received a few subtle changes, mostly aimed at raising the car's already commanding presence.

14 May 2022 | International News : U.K.


Rolls-Royce has updated the Phantom.

The 'New Expression' as the firm calls the changes, have been light, all done to gently raise the car's commanding presence. Up front, a new horizontal line now connects the head lights to the Pantheon Grille, for more assertive authority.

The front grille of the Phantom is now illuminated, while the head lights now sport laser-cut bezel starlights
This grille is also now illuminated, and has been altered just enough to make the 'RR' Badge of Honour and Spirit of Ecstasy mascot more prominent when viewed from the front. Those head lights meanwhile, are now graced with intricate laser-cut bezel starlights, creating a visual connection with the Starlight Headliner inside.

Rolls Royce states that the Phantom may now be commissioned with darkened chrome grille surround, black bonnet reins, windscreen surround and side frame finishers.

Two new rim designs are also being offered on the car. The first is a milled, stainless-steel wheel with triangular facets which is available to commission in a fully or part-polished finish.

Alternatively, the Phantom may be graced a disc wheel, that recalls the romance of 1920's Rolls-Royce motor cars. This disc wheel can be had in either polished stainless steel or finished in a black lacquer.

The bespoke Phantom Platino features fabric seats at the rear, echoing the cars from Rolls-Royce's formative days
To mark the introduction of this new Phantom and to illustrate Rolls-Royce's Bespoke capability, the marque has also created a new bespoke masterpiece, Phantom Platino, named after the silver-white finish of the coveted and precious metal, platinum.

On the inside, the Phantom Platino takes an exploration into the use of fabric interiors, with its front seats finished in fine Rolls-Royce leather, while those in the rear are upholstered in fabric, echoing the cars from the marque's formative days

The car also utilises two fabrics made by combining the first from an Italian mill for its durable yet luxurious appearance, with another derived from bamboo fibres, selected for its lustrous finish, in order to create the tone-on-tone finish seen in the Platino's interior.

The Phantom Platino also sports a special dashboard timepiece that utilises the same design. Its 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.
