A Rolls-Royce for the 21st century.
The interior of the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom has been caught on camera for the first time.
Partially covered by camouflaged, the redesigned cabin has an evolutionary design but it adopts a new digital instrument cluster. The model also has a larger infotainment system, revised switchgear, and a redesigned center stack. We can also see a new dashboard, a more traditional steering wheel, and an updated infotainment controller.
While the cabin is taking a step into the 21st century, the exterior styling is instantly recognizable as the model has a prominent grille and modestly revised bodywork. Styling details are hard to make out but we can see rectangular headlights, a relatively flat roof, and a sportier four-tailpipe exhaust system. The model also has coach doors and thick C-pillars which help to increase privacy for rear seat passengers.
Rolls-Royce hasn't said much about the model but the company has already confirmed the Phantom will ride on an all-new aluminum space-frame architecture that will enable the car to be lighter than its predecessor while still maintaining a "magic-carpet ride" quality.
The 2018 Phantom will be offered in two different wheelbases but the Phantom Coupe and Phantom Drophead Coupe won't be making a return to the lineup.
