Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII teased
While it might not be the most revealing image, Rolls-Royce released the first official photo of its upcoming Phantom VIII 4-door due to sometime in 2018. This all-new generation will be based on a new all-aluminum structure that also will underpin all future Rolls-Royce models. Additional details on what Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, calls the “the flagship of global luxury" are limited, but it’s expected to continue on with V12 power. Less certain is whether that it will be a revised version of the naturally aspirated 6.75-liter engine used in the Phantom VII or the new 6.6-liter twin-turbo unit from the recently introduced Rolls-Royce Dawn.
Speaking of the Phantom VII, Müller-Ötvös said demand for that vehicle continues to be strong and that while the line is still set to shut down on December 31, buyer interest remains high and the factory is “developing highly-individual cars which will be offered in order to satisfy demand well into 2017.” He further noted that all 50 units of the unique Phantom VII Zenith Collection have been sold.
