    2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom launched at Rs 9.5 crore

    Rolls-Royce has launched the 2018 Phantom in India at Rs 9.5 crore for the standard wheelbase version and Rs 11.35 crore for the extended wheelbase version, making it the most expensive car currently on sale in India (prices, ex-showroom).

    Build on the all-new aluminium spaceframe platform, the new eighth-generation Phantom is lighter and 30 percent more rigid than the previous car. The spaceframe platform will also underpin future Rolls-Royce models including the brand’s first ever SUV, the Cullinan. The new platform on the Phantom has helped to further improve ride quality and refinement levels over the older model.

    Doing duty under the hood is a 6.75-litre, twin-turbo, V12 petrol motor that churns out 571hp at 5,000rpm and a humongous 900Nm of peak torque at 1,700rpm. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

    The standard Phantom is 5.7m long, while the extended wheelbase version is nearly six metres (5,982mm) in length, with a wheelbase of 3,772mm.

    Being a Rolls flagship, the Phantom boasts a high level of bespoke customisation options, the highlight of which is the Gallery – a single piece of fixed glass that spans the width of dashboard and is a customisable canvas on which its ultra-rich owners can commission art of their favourite artists or choose from the composition that Rolls-Royce offers.

    Other creature comforts include the Starlight roof, that can be set to replicate a night sky, a champagne chiller and flutes, buttons to open and close the doors and, of course, extensive use of sound deadening in a bid to make this the quietest car in the world.
