Rio Prestige

Sheer presence! New Rolls Royce Phantom 8

No vehicle has a stronger association with royalty than the Rolls-Royce Phantom. For the third time since 1968 a completely new Phantom has been unveiled!

The new Rolls-Royce Phantom is the first Rolls-Royce to use a new all-aluminum space frame named the ‘Architecture of Luxury’. It makes the Phantom lighter and stiffer than it’s predecessor and this ‘AoL’ will form the basis for all future Rolls-Royce models including the Cullinan and the next-generation Ghost, Wraith, Dawn and other coachbuilt projects.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom has always been as much about the luxury inside as it is about its stately exterior image. The Phantom VIII makes no compromises. The massive suicide doors open to rear reclining seats. Planting your feet in the thick carpets, the doors close at the press of a button. Sitting under a star studded roof lining, you find everything you need to work, relax or sleep.


A new twin-turbo 6.75 liter V12 engine is responsible for the forward momentum in the Phantom VIII. The Phantom has never been about speed or performance so the actual engine output is quite irrelevant. What is relevant is how quiet the V12 engine runs. It is one of the hallmark characteristics of any modern Rolls-Royce, it is so quiet it is not easy to tell if the engine is on or not.
