Unveiled at a private event held in the UAE’s capital premier Rolls-Royce showroom, the 2018 Phantom has made its official Middle East debut and is as spectacular as one could imagine.
During the event, onlookers took time to appreciate the models new bolder front grille, 22-inch alloys with the iconic weighted wheel caps, laser headlights and jewel inspired rear light graphics.
Inside, luxury oozes out as soon as any of the four doors are opened. Completed with all-new front seats, two 12.3-inch displays and a bespoke analogue clock, to go along with the rest of the impressive features, the 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom is the luxury car to rule them all.
What powers the 2018 Phantom?
Power is drawn from a massive yet silent new V12 6.75-litre petrol engine. With two turbochargers firmly attached, 563 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque is channelled to the rear axle via an 8-speed satellite aided automatic transmission. Although you won’t be buying one for its 0-100 km/h sprint time, for those interested, the model sprints to 100 in an impressive 5.3 seconds.
Continuing the tradition of “The Most Silent Car in the World” Rolls-Royce has elegantly attached 6mm of two-layer glazing across the model, 130 kilos of sound insulation properties and larger cast aluminium joints in order to keep the cabin as quiet as possible.
2018 Phantom ultra luxurious saloon cars are available to pre-order and enthusiasts can choose between a standard and long-wheelbase. You can expect the models to go on sale later this year or early 2018.
