The eighth-generation Rolls-Royce Phantom is all set to make its global debut in July.
A video and the first teaser pictures have been released, and while the murky images don’t give much away, it’s clear that Rolls-Royce new flagship will represent a step-change in terms of design.
The signature grille is now slightly curved, rather the the ‘pantheon’ style, while a shot of wood veneer with a clock, shows that there’s still room for tradition.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will stage an exhibition in July that will see eight of the rarest and most iconic versions of its 92-year-old Phantom model gather together, to mark the debut of the all-new eighth generation version, which will go on sale in 2018.
Called ‘The Eight Great Phantoms”, the exhibition will take place from July 27 at Rolls-Royce’s spiritual home in Mayfair, London.
Over the next eight weeks, Rolls-Royce will announce which great Phantoms will journey to London from around the world, telling the stories of these motor cars and the historical events they witnessed.
First up is the ‘The Fred Astaire Phantom I’, loaned to the exhibition by its owner, the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles.
