Think of a luxury vehicle and surely you’ll think the name rolls Royce. From their top notch innovation to the extreme attention to details, the rolls Royce brand is meant for the elite in the society. The brand new Rolls Royce phantom VIII offer such luxury at its extreme.

The Phantom VIII is the first car to sit on newly developed Rolls-Royce aluminum space frame which Rolls plans use beneath all of its upcoming models, including the crossover known as the Cullinan. The phantom VIII comes in a shorter wheelbase than its predecessors but that didn’t affect its elegance and sheer excellence in interior decor and comfortability. The car is designed to have as few visible joins as possible and appear like a solid block of aluminium.

The grille, for the first time, is integrated into the surrounding bodywork for a cleaner, more modern design, and it’s taller than that of the Phantom VII, with the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot mounted half an inch higher. The Phantom is available in two wheelbase lengths.

The Extended Wheelbase Phantom is 220 millimetres (8.7 in) longer than the standard model. The phantom also features and air suspension which comes up immediately you turn on the ignition. Four wheel steering system was also reintroduced into the phantom. This reduces the turn radius of the phantom,ensuring easier cornering on bend at a low speed and a more stable ride at speed above 40mph


As it is always with the brand,the new Rolls Royce interior is built from the back seat to the front and offers more luxury to passengers at the back. From its well trimmed high-end custom-made leather seats which were stitched by hand to the exotic feel of quietness once the door is closed.

The phantom VIII dashboard features another impressive component in its added glass cover which Rolls said will serve as an art gallery. Customers can easily turn their car dashboard into an art exhibition screen.

The rear seat is curved inwards to make discussion with other passengers easier without straining your neck. Go for the fixed rear centre console and you get a drinks cabinet with whisky glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and coolbox.

The car is also designed to make its occupants feel cocooned through “The Embrace”, a feature that closes the doors automatically at the touch of a sensor.


The roof of the phantom VIII is lined with LEDs set into the ceiling to resemble a star constellation or shape of the customer’s choice. Like its predecessors the phantom VIII still came with the standard analogue clock on the dashboard which Rolls claims to be the loudest thing you’ll hear inside the cabin when the doors are shut. The infotainment system in the phantom also received an upgrade. There’s integrated camera system with a 360 angle video capacity.


Engine and Transmission

Coming to the drive train, the new phantom is powered by a new twin-turbocharged 6.8-liter V-12, an improvement to the 6.6-liter on the Ghost. The new engine produces an impressive 563hp and 664 pound/feet of torque. The top speed is at 155 mph, and it’ll hit 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.

This is marshaled through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and sent exclusively to the rear wheels. To ensure that things don’t get too exciting, the torque output is limited in first and second gears. Phantom VIII ZF 8-speed gearbox is aided by satellite technology to make impeccable shifts for the road ahead at any speed, isn’t that impressive?

The engine and transmission ensures a smoother ride than you can get from any car of its kind.

You’d love to have one of these beauties I suppose. It’ll only be a wish unless you can cough out at least $450,000 for its base model and notably more cash on the custom models.
