Final Rolls Royce Phantom VII rolls off production line – Photos
The final Rolls-Royce Phantom VII, which has been in production for the past 13 years has rolled off production lines.
Commissioned by an avid Rolls-Royce collector, this final Phantom was something special. It is based on the long wheelbase version of the car and sports a list of items that ape a 1930 ocean liner. It receives Blue Velvet finish with twin coach line and an ocean liner emblem while it sits on solid silver Spirit of Ecstasy and pinstripe tyres.
True to its navy theme, the Rolls-Royce Phantom VII gets two clocks akin to a classic ship radio clock both of which are seen in a grooved bezel with 24 time zones allowing the users to rotate them in all directions. Special bespoke effect is seen on the lambswool carpets while seating is the ultimate in comfort and is seen in the plushest of while leather.
The final Rolls-Royce Phantom sees no change in engine specifications and continues to be powered by a 6.75 liter, V12 engine offering 454 bhp power and 531 lb/ft torque. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph is achieved in 6.1 seconds while top speed stands at 238 kmph.
Meant for a special customer, the company has not announced final pricing but the normal extended wheelbase models start at £373,824 (INR 3.67 crores). Following the final Rolls-Royce Phantom VII rolling off production lines, the company is set to commence work on the upcoming Phantom VIII model which is due to arrive next year with new aluminum architecture.
The new generation Phantom will be based on the same platform as the upcoming Rolls Royce SUV Project Cullinan. This new architecture will make the car even more refined, stronger, safer and luxurious. More details are due to be revealed later this year.
