2018 Rolls Royce Phantom Price, Release Date
Anticipate the coming of 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom if you really want to see how Rolls-Royce defines a luxury car. It will come out with some modifications and that is what we heard from many rumors about this British automaker. It will be a future car that is prepared to give you high level of comfort and best driving experience. Everything was started from their public announcement for the test mule they done for sedan segment. It sounds that this version will be released sometime in 2017. It was spotted with more different features without losing its identity although it is totally under a heavy camouflage and it is still in the development stage.
Don’t think that they will change everything totally; they will keep the iconic details for its heritage. So, 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom gives you the old structure language but we glad that the company offers it with the more advanced technology. You will see the use of carbon fiber and aluminum for its chassis in order to improve its performance. Besides, rumors said that the car will get new rear-wheel-drive platform that has been modified from BMW 7-Series. On the other hands, rumors mentioned that there will be a new platform presented by Rolls-Royce that is constructed with aluminum sub-frames and central carbon for both end. At the front, it has two new intakes that are backed up the makeshift exhaust system at the rear. With the use of lightweight carbon fiber for its most parts, the car can improve its dynamic performance. For the weight, it reaches about 5,600 pounds and it would be more if we calculate with the large battery. We also don’t expect to see much change in this car with its stylish and elegant design.
No much thing we can reveal for the cabin side but we hear that the car will borrow some parts from BMW 7 Series for its testing, not for its production. Therefore, it is not easy to reveal this part. What we can expect is that 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom has more modern features inside to give high excitement.
Hybrid configuration is quite possible to offer and it might get a new rear-wheel-drive platform from BMW. A new powertrain is also expected since we see that the test mule features come with two new intakes for its front and this system is backed up with the makeshift exhaust system for its rear. It is also possible for the company to offer the standard V12 unit. So, here are the possibilities:
First, it might go with V16 engine and 9.0 liter with sixteen-cylinder. Second, it can be BMW 4.4 liter V8 or 6.0 liter V12. Third, it can be Rolls-Royce Ghost 6.6 liter and V12. Diesel unit is also possible for 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom.
Its release should be sometime in 2017 to complete the battle in 2018. 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom is expected to come with the base price not more than $420,000.
