Rolls-Royce has announced that Phantom customers are now offered a wider choice of options to individualize their motor car. Each new feature has been carefully designed and engineered to enhance the look and feel of the Phantom.
To complement the elegant exterior profile of the Phantom, a new set of 21-inch aluminium wheels are now available. Taller than the conventional Phantom rims by 30mm, the wheels add a dramatic edge to the look of the motor car and highlight the dynamic character of the Phantom. Shod with Goodyear tyres, they feature a built-in run flat system. The new tyres sizes are 255/50R21W on 8x21 rims at the front, and 285/45R21W on 9.5x21 rims at the rear.
The finest woodwork has always been an important feature of Rolls-Royce models and now customers can choose additional items to be finished in specially selected veneers. The steering wheel spokes, instrument panel and rear air vent surround can now all be specified with the wood matching the feature grain selected for the dashboard. Customers can choose from five veneers - Bird's Eye Maple, Burr Walnut, Elm Cluster, Figured Mahogany and Oak Burr. All Rolls-Royce wood components are produced by the highly skilled team of craftsmen and women at Goodwood, England.
The Phantom currently uses a wool and cashmere blend fabric for the interior headlining of the motor car. Customers may wish to specify the newly available Extended Leather Headlining as an alternative. Finished with a subtle perforation, the leather panel maintains a sense of light and space in the cabin and adds an extra dash of luxury.
A tilt and slide sunroof can now be specified. It is controlled with Rolls-Royce signature 'violin keys' situated in the overhead lighting panel. When closed the sunroof can be used to allow natural ambient lighting into the cabin or be screened off completely. Rear vanity mirrors, housed in the headlining, can also be specified as part of the package.
A number of new exterior colours and interior trim options will also be available from August this year. Previously available only via the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars' Bespoke Programme, three further exterior colours have been added to the palette - Silver mono, Platinum mono and Artic White. Interior trims for the Phantom can now be ordered in Seashell mono, Tan mono, Light Grey mono, Blue Grey mono and Seashell and Black.Published 12 August 2004
