The 2011 Phantom carries on Rolls-Royce's traditional, conservative shape but with thoroughly modern mechanical components co-developed with BMW.
2016,The Phantom is powered by a 6.7L V12 engine that has direct injection, variable valve control, and variable valve timing. It makes 453 horsepower and 531 ft-lb of torque, delivered though a 6-speed automatic transmission. As such, it can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and on to an electronically limited 149-mph top speed. According to Rolls-Royce, 75% (398 ft-lb) of its torque is available at only 1,000 rpm for effortless and quiet acceleration, and the engine is matched with an especially quiet exhaust system that has special "whisper-valves" to make it almost silent when stationary or moving slowly away.
2016,The Phantom is built on a hand-welded aluminum alloy spaceframe. With a double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear arrangement, combined with air springs and a continuous electronic damping system, the body is kept level and the ride is kept smooth while allowing responsive handling. On command, the suspension can be raised by an inch at low speeds for more clearance.
2016,Michelin PAX run-flat tires are standard; Goodyear's Extended Mobility Technology (EMT) run-flat tires are also available. Both tire systems can be driven at 55 mph for up to 100 miles without inflation or a spare. The standard wheels are also distinctive, with weighted center caps that always stay right-side up.
2016,The Phantom is available in four primary models--standard-length and Extended Wheelbase (EWB) sedans, drophead coupe and coupe. The EWB sedan gains nearly ten inches in rear legroom over the standard wheelbase, and rear entry is made easier with the rear-hinged rear doors. On either sedan model, the rear doors can be automatically closed with a button from inside the car. The trunklid has powered, soft-close operation and is finished in black wool or teak and features two hidden lower compartments.
2016,The Phantom coupe features traditional rear-hinged doors with Art Deco door handles. The trunk incorporates an innovative tailgate, which can hold up to 330 pounds and with 13.9 cubic feet of storage space inside the trunk, four sets of golf clubs are no problem.
2016,The drophead coupe and coupe are aimed more at affluent individuals looking for a leisure vehicle to drive themselves, while both the sedans are considered by Rolls-Royce to be better suited for formal occasions--preferably with a driver.
2016,The Phantom's instrument panel mixes old and new, with a very traditional-looking set of gauges and central clock, but the clock folds away to reveal a display--one similar to that used by parent company BMW--to access some functions, especially those for entertainment.
2016,Luxurious appointments are expected inside; outside of the expected audio/video entertainment systems, standout options include a drinks cabinet, theater seating, a curtain divider, a picnic table, front and rear camera systems and various wood veneers for trim. On the outside, the Phantom is available with a monotone look, or the hood, roof, trunk, or sides can be painted in a contrasting tone.
2016,To help power all the Phantom's electrical accessories, there are two liquid-cooled alternators, a main battery (for accessories and entertainment systems) and a dedicated starting battery.
