The new Rolls Royce Phantom Series II was presented at the Geneva Motor Show today.
The Series II is a significant advance on its predecessor that was introduced in 2003.
The Phantom’s Series II V12 engine will now feature a new 8-speed automatic gearbox and rear differential to enhance the driving pleasure. Fuel consumption improves by 10 per cent on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions fall from 388 to 347 g/km as a consequence
The Phantom Series II will be the first production car to have full LED headlamps as standard, the adaptive headlamps change the cone of light projected onto a road in conjunction with the steering input. LED headlamps use less energy than their Xenon counterparts, yet offer white lighter.
Technology will take a new look through the introduction of a larger 8.8 inch control centre display, a feature underlined by eight programmable bookmarks presenting access to key functions at a driver’s fingertips. Front, rear and top-view camera systems further augment ease of manoeuvring. When reverse parking, for example, rear path prediction automatically deploys on the screen.
The multi-media controller user interface has been re-designed for the Series II. The new satellite navigation system has been fully updated with functions that include 3D maps with landscape topography, guided tours and enhanced points of interest, as well as composite route planning.
