Design is more evolutionary than revolutionary; the basic shape of the outgoing Phantom more or less remains. But the new car seems lower, with a lower bonnet and roof line, and a longer rear deck. I especially like the lines starting at the grille, going over the bonnet, and then around the window.

The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom stands on a new aluminum spaceframe architecture, which will also underpin the upcoming Cullinan SUV. The Phantom will debut on the Frankfurt Auto Show in September and launch on international market in Q1 2018.

It will be powered by a new 6.75 liter twin-turbocharged V12 with about 600 horsepower. The EWB version will be over 6 meters long.
