Rolls-Royce has updated its range-topping Phantom sedan with a series of subtle tweaks aimed at keeping it competitive against rivals from Mercedes-Maybach and Bentley.
Key tweaks include a slightly reworked front grille, which features a more prominent badge and dark finish and is now illuminated – like on the smaller Rolls-Royce Ghost.
A new polished horizontal line between the daytime running lights has also been added and gives the car a “new and assertive modernity, reflecting its driver-focused character”, according to Rolls-Royce.
The Phantom’s lights also get an upgrade, with laser-cut star-shaped patterns added for added nighttime presence.
There’s also a new set of stainless steel wheels, with triangular detailing, but 1920s-style disc wheels are also available.
Inside, a thicker steering wheel has been installed but the rest of the cabin remains unchanged.
However, owners can opt for a new silver-white interior color scheme called Phantom Platino, which brings bamboo-derived fabric for the rear seats, while leather is used for the front seats.
No other changes have been made, so the Rolls-Royce Phantom continues with the same twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V12 engine it’s used since its arrival in 2017.
Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: “We are very aware of the esteem and love that our customers have for their Phantoms. They felt it could not be improved; but while naturally respecting this point of view, we believe that it is always possible, even necessary, to go slowly further in our quest for absolute perfection.
“The subtle changes we have made to the new Phantom Series II have all been carefully considered and meticulously executed. As Sir Henry Royce himself said: “Little things make perfection, but perfection is not a small matter”.
