rolls royce send ghost to finish school by 2023. What’s back is the Series II, which Rolls itself recognizes as a “subtle” evolution of the iconic super-luxury sedan. To commemorate the occasion, the company commissioned a one-of-a-kind model called the Platinum (for “platinum”), pictured below.
“The subtle changes we have made to the new Phantom Series II have been carefully considered and meticulously executed. As Sir Henry Royce himself said: ‘Little things make perfect, but perfection is no small thing,'” he said. Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten. Müller-Ötvös in the official announcement of the company.
The Phantom Series II received what Rolls-Royce described as a “light touch” aesthetic update. The grid is only slightly more vertical and is now illuminated (a borrowed sign from the Ghost) and the headlights now feature a laser-cut pattern designed to mimic Rolls-Royce’s signature “Starlight” roof lining inside the Phantom. Two new wheel options have been added. The first is a 3D milled stainless steel wheel with triangular facets; the second is the 1920s-style disc, available in a stainless or black lacquered finish.
Inside, nothing has really changed, but you’re unlikely to notice one way or the other, as no two Phantoms ever really look alike unless deliberately commissioned that way. Rolls-Royce says the steering wheel is the only notable interior update; it got a little thicker. The infotainment system has also been upgraded to incorporate Rolls-Royce Connected, which talks to its digital concierge smartphone app, Whisper. That allows owners to monitor the Phantom’s vital signs, send destinations to the navigation system, or schedule service.
The Platinum Phantom (the white one above) is a perfect illustration of what we said earlier about no two Phantoms looking the same. Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke individualization program is busy virtually 24/7, crafting one-of-a-kind creations for its super-rich clients. The Platinum’s cloth rear seats are a nod to the early days of Rolls-Royce, when the front seats were trimmed in leather but the rear was covered in upholstered cloth.
