The refined qualities of the Phantom are clear when you look at the speed and performance features of this sleek luxury car. The 0 - 60 mph acceleration time is achieved in less than 6 seconds. This sharp time is powered by the special engine of the luxury car which is the focus of its performance perks.
The V12 engine of the Phantom which has a 6.7 litre capacity is the foundation of the 6-speed automatic transmission that drivers ignite to power this example of motoring excellence. The automatic transmission helps the Phantom achieve a torque of 720 Nm. The performance is also pushed to another level with the horsepower thresholds of the Phantom: the car reaches 453 horsepower based on 5,350 revolutions per minute. These are stunning results for a name that lives up to its haunting name.
The Phantom's engine has a direct fuel injection system. The reason why luxury car makers like direct fuel injection is because it makes it easier for the fuel to reach the engine which creates the right platform for luxury driving. The technology of the V12 engine doesn't end there: it has 4 valves per cylinder which are engineered with variable valve timing.
Rolls-Royce understands that performance and safety go hand in hand. The safety features of the Phantom shows the English marque's dedication to giving motorists above and beyond what they expect. The first feature to capture the attention of passengers and drivers are the multiple airbags to protect everyone in the Phantom when it's in motion. These are supplemented by a complex braking system. This includes an anti-braking system, a brake assist control and an electronic hand brake.
The marque also understands that drivers want to feel safe as they are doing different manoeuvres while they are driving. Traction and stability controls are available for use for drivers who want to have total power on how the Rolls-Royce Phantom moves.
The aura of the Phantom affects everyone who sees it: whether it is the driver, passenger or a passer-by, its power to exude luxury continues to grow as more people embrace this iconic car. Find out why when you step inside the ultimate prestige car: the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
The body of the Phantom is coloured in glossy black paint which gives it an imposing look that only Rolls-Royce's designers can achieve. The body features 20 inch alloy wheels which gleam when the Phantom is taken out for morning or evening drives. Speed sensitive wipers are part of the front of the car which makes it simple for the driver to navigate where they are going.
Rolls-Royce added an extra touch of luxury with the power glass sun-roof that covers the top of the body. The electric foldable mirrors of the Phantom show off the high standards of the body of the car. They can be activated from inside the car but their polished look is best seen from outside of the luxury car.
The Bi-Xenon headlights of the Phantom are another example of how Rolls-Royce wants to ensure that the Phantom illuminates the road whenever it is in use. These Bi-Xenon headlights are powered by projector beams which ensure that plenty of light is dispersed for safe driving.
The cabin of the Phantom is an eye-catching example of how beauty and finesse comes together. There are 5 seats in the interior of the Phantom and these include the rear, front and the driver's seat. The seat for the driver is heated for extra comfort. When passengers and the driver enter the Phantom, the sumptuous leather upholstery is the perfect platform for ultimate comfort that Rolls-Royce enthusiasts expect.
Media and entertainment is a key focus of the Phantom. Passengers will adore using the separate media features such as the Sirius satellite radio which is integrated into the interior. The hi-tech satellite radio is matched by the auxiliary MP3 audio input in case people want to play their favourite tracks from their music players. The CD and MP3 options for entertainment are enhanced by the 15 speakers that accent the audio for passengers. The hands free phone makes it easy to make phone calls at any time.
The trip computer of the Phantom is the ideal tool for drivers to use to organise the most complex and simple trips. This is just one of the many features of the cabin that shows the luxurious practicality of the Phantom. Other accents of the cabin that point to the durability of this luxury car are the dual illuminating vanity mirrors and reading lights in the front and the rear.
The interior's ability to make the driver feel at ease is visible from the steering wheel. This is not your average steering wheel: the Phantom has a tilt-adjustable steering wheel that also has audio controls. The steering wheel is an excellent example of Rolls-Royce's ability to fuse functionality with sheer luxury.
Driving in the Rolls-Royce is not high pressure; it is a seamless experience based on the interior driving controls that include a low fuel warning signal. Rolls-Royce engineers know that the driver and passengers of the Phantom want to have a 360 degree driving experience as well and this is shown through the front console with a storage facility and a remote control boot release to activate the boot for long trips.
Rolls-Royce once again has proven its commitment to giving drivers more. The air conditioning of the Phantom is polished with climate control that can be adjusted. Cruise control and the full dashboard console are at the disposal of the driver where choice and luxury combine for a dazzling driving experience.
