Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB’s “Privacy Suite” Offers Total Isolation From The Peasants

As a brand that has some of the world’s most influential people as customers, Rolls-Royce takes pride in ensuring they have not only a smooth and quiet ride, but also a discreet one. The company has always been proud of the fact that the rear compartment of a Rolls-Royce affords its customers the “luxury of privacy.”

From now on, that luxury will become even more obvious as Rolls-Royce has introduced at the 2018 Chengdu Motor Show today the “Privacy Suite” for the new Extended Wheelbase Phantom.

Essentially, the new option allows the front and rear cabins to be visually separated at the touch of a button thanks to the integration of Electrochromatic Glass. Rear occupants have the option to see through the glass and on to the road ahead or to instantly make the glass opaque for a superior level of privacy.

Also new are the Rear Privacy Curtains, which allow the full closure of the side and rear windows, and the Rear Privacy Glass, which extends discretion when the curtains are open.

Rolls-Royce says the Privacy Suite is a leap forward in sound absorption as well, on a car that is already considered as the quietest in the world. Furthermore, while a fully integrated Intercom System allows communication on demand, a frequency-specific compound “inhibits the transmission of conversations in the rear cabin to the front cabin.”

Should the driver want to contact the rear passengers when the “privacy mode” is on, all he or she has to do is “call” them. Obviously, they can choose to answer or reject the communication.

Adding to the strong points of Rolls-Royce‘s Privacy Suite is a large aperture controlled exclusively by the rear passenger that allows documents or other objects to be passed between the front and rear cabins. When open, the compartment is subtly illuminated to ensure passengers agree with the nature of items before receiving them.

Finally, the Privacy Suite also includes a Bespoke Rear Theatre Entertainment system, which features two 12-inch monitors linked to the car’s software, as well as an HDMI port. The system is deployed and controlled from the center console.

    Where can I get one?!!! Just imagine, one can obscure the offending views of public transport and upsetting construction sites, crumbling architecture, garbage strewn sidewalks and droves of boring Toyotas, Chevs and other ‘all I can afford’ mobiles, not too mention the sound deadening qualities which will allow one to escape the horrendous noise of deafening audio machinations escaping from the vehicle beside you at the next light! Sounds absolutely perfect!!
