Rolls-Royce has updated its pinnacle model the Phantom giving it a “new expression”. The Phantom Series II now features a revised front fascia, a new set of wheels, and a longer list of bespoke options and features. There’s also a new variant available called the Phantom Platino, aside from the long-wheelbase version. The Rolls Royce Phantom Series II is expected to launch here in India later this year, post which, we can expect it to be pricier than the Phantom VIII which retails here at ₹10 crore (ex-showroom).The subtle tweaks on the outside start with the Phantom’s Pantheon grille. It gets a new polished chrome line that separates the grille and the body-coloured hood. Furthermore, the grille also gets illuminated, a feature that debuted with the Rolls Royce Ghost. The headlight design has remained the same, but in the Phantom Series II, it further gets laser-cut bezel starlights. This small little feature gives the same effect as the Starlight headliner found inside. Furthermore, the ‘RR’ badge on the front is more prominent than before.The Spirit of Ecstasy is also the new model that Rolls-Royce developed for the upcoming Spectre EV. While the car looks the same from the side, the Rolls Royce Phantom Series II will get new 3D, milled, 7-spoke effect wheels that can be had in either fully or part-polished finish. The Phantom Series II will also get a new disc wheel design option that resembles Rolls-Royce from the 20s. Catering to client requests from before, Rolls-Royce is now also offering darkened chrome grille surround, black bonnet reins, windscreen surrounds, and side frame finishers, as commission options.As for the interior, the layout of the coach remains similar to the Phantom VIII, except for the steering wheel which is slightly thicker than before for better grip. However, Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collection is deliberately keeping the Phantom Series II coach a ‘blank canvas’ to cater to its diverse clientele’s diverse commissions.Furthermore, to mark the Rolls-Royce Phantom II’s launch, the marque has also introduced a new variant called the Phantom Platino. This will be a ‘bespoke masterpiece’, and the interior will be made up of two different fabrics. While the front seats of the Phantom Platino will be finished in leather, the second row will be made up of a unique fibre that combines Italian mill and bamboo shoot fibres. As for the dashboard, it will be surrounded by a unique 3D printed ceramic, which will be further flanked by an iced finish wood set. The Phantom Series II also gets the updated ‘Rolls-Royce Connected Suite’ the brand’s on-car connectivity feature. The feature shows the vehicle’s location, health status, and security status. Owners can access this feature via the Whisper app. As for its powertrain, it will be powered by the same 6.75-litre V12 engine that produces 563 hp and 900 Nm of torque.
