Spied: 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom caught testing
Earlier in the year, Rolls-Royce had made headlines by announcing to stop the production of its current seventh-generation flagship Phantom. Now we have spy shots of the new 2018 Phantom with a sneak peek of the interiors as well.
It is too early to comment on the styling of the vehicle as the company might be using the old body shells under the camouflage. Otherwise, the overall design looks very Rolls-Royce with short front overhang and a large wheelbase. The rear lights now seem to have a circular profile. On the interiors front, an all-new digital instrumentation panel along with a centre screen are revealed by the photos. The air con vents seemed to have moved a little lower and now sit at the elbow level of the driver, similar to that in the Ghost. A circular selector knob similar to BMW's i-Drive sits in the central console, and the gear selector lever is still positioned behind the steering wheel.
This eight-generation Phantom will use an all aluminium platform which will be used in all other Rollers from 2018. The expected work horse is supposed to be the traditional V12 until Rolls-Royce has a magic trick tucked up its sleeves. Keep tuned to this space for more updates.
