Rolls-Royce launched Phantom VIII, the most grandiose car of the brand
Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII was presented to the public in London, last Friday, few days after UK announced it will ban sales of fossil-fuel cars by 2040. Rolls-Royce Phantom is only the second modern version of the flagship car that Rolls premiered in 1925.
BMW Group presented its first model of modern Phantom in 2003 and used until 2011. Phantom VIII is the version which Rolls-Royce has managed to fully update. In the years before 2003, Rolls has produced the Phantom VI continuously from 1968 and until 1990.
“Rolls-Royce will go electric in the next 10 years”, stated its chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös in an interview. “You need to have then an effortless charging situation, as wealthy clientele isn’t in the mood to spend more than a couple minutes topping up batteries”.
The new model Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII looks modern and majestic. Inside the car presents details for every component, these are so many that it takes too long to name each and one of them. This is only the second Phantom model produced by Rolls-Royce under BMW. The driving system and entertainment controls are very similar to those used on other vehicles of this brand.
