Phantom VIII Extended Wheelbase

Simply incomparable: a new benchmark in space and luxury.

The new Phantom is the eighth generation of Rolls-Royce flagships and, like each of its majestic predecessors, it sets new standards in refinement, luxury and comfort.

That’s especially true of the extended wheelbase version, which embraces its occupants in a meticulously-crafted interior that’s designed to make every journey a memorable experience.

Overview

Phantom VIII Extended Wheelbase

From the curved edges of the Pantheon grille to the elegant, sweeping lines from nose to tail, the form of the new Phantom conveys poised assurance. The rear window is more steeply raked than that of its predecessor but the scalloped roofline ensures that even the tallest of rear-seat occupants can stretch out in comfort. A single polished stainless-steel strip distinguishes the Extended Wheelbase Phantom from its stablemate.

Entry and egress are all part of what Rolls-Royce describes as ‘the embrace’; a chauffeur or attendant simply needs to touch a sensor on the door handle for it to close smoothly and silently. Alternatively, rear seat occupants can control this function from their seats.

Once inside, passengers can savour an interior that’s contemporary, uncluttered and full of tactile delights. Technology remains hidden until required, spaces and surfaces are clean. Occupants are encircled in beautiful and authentic materials, such as high-gloss veneers and flawless leather. The sweep of wood panelling across the back of the front seats draws inspiration from the iconic Eames chair, while above the passengers’ heads is the largest Starlight headlining ever created for a Rolls-Royce.

Seating choices include lounge seats, individual seats with occasional armrest, individual seats with fixed centre console and the newly-introduced sleeping seat. The centre console includes a drinks cabinet, while picnic tables and theatre monitors can be deployed or retracted at the touch of a button. Naturally, the seats can be heated in cool weather – and the heating extends to other areas the arm might touch, including front door armrests, front centre console lid, lower C-Pillar, rear side armrests and rear centre armrest.

Technology

Phantom VIII Extended Wheelbase

The Phantom VIII features Rolls-Royce’s innovative aluminium body structure, which they’ve named the ‘Architecture of Luxury’; it’s lighter, stiffer and quieter than that of any previous Rolls-Royce. All glass is 6mm two-layer glazing, there’s over 130kg of sound insulation and the tyres feature a new ‘Silent-Seal’ technology. For these and many other reasons Rolls-Royce claim that it’s the most silent motor car in the world.

Propelling this extraordinary motor car is a new, turbocharged 6.75-litre V12 that’s as powerful as it is unobtrusive, developing 900Nm of torque from just 1700rpm. Transmission is satellite-aided to predict when it would be helpful to hold a lower gear (just before a steep incline, for instance). The The latest-generation air suspension features the ‘Flagbearer’, a stereo video camera that scans the road ahead and adjusts the suspension in anticipation of dips and bumps. The result sets the seal on over a century of relentless perfectionism in pursuit of the famous ‘magic carpet’ ride.
