Rolls Royce Teases New Phantom, Confirms 2018 Debut

Rolls-Royce has announced that the all-new Phantom will hit the market in two years and released a teaser image of its new all-aluminum hi-tech chassis.

Development of the next big Rolls has entered an “advanced stage” according to the company while demand for the current model remains strong since the announcement of its production ending in this December.

All 50 of the final Phantom Coupe and Drophead Coupe Zenith Collection models have been sold out while customers are still placing their orders for further bespoke and one-off versions of the Phantom limousine before the production line closes on December 31.

Rolls Royce says that the remaining capacity is enough to satisfy demand “well into 2017” with highly-individual cars.

“The huge level of demand for Phantom VII, which we will fulfill well into 2017, clearly demonstrates that the Rolls-Royce customer and patron of true luxury will accept no compromise when considering the purchase of a super-luxury motor car, and will not be seduced by mass-luxury brands”, said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Rolls-Royce CEO. “I am proud and excited to confirm that a new Phantom is on the way – and it will be a contemporary and beautiful Phantom befitting of its role as the flagship of global luxury.”

Does this mean we get to have another go in the current Phantom?
