A brand new version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom is getting ready to be introduced over the next three years.
Rolls-Royce may have been producing the current Phantom for quite a few years now but the luxury car manufacturer is currently getting ready to officially introduce an all new model, which will eventually replace the current version. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but according to a recent report, published by the guys at Autocar, the model in question will most likely be introduced sometimes in 2017, and it should revolutionize the segment.
The official replacement of the Rolls-Royce Phantom is believed to use an aluminum platform and probably a carbon fiber bodyshell, considering the fact that its smaller “cousin”, the future BMW 7-Series generation, will be using carbon fiber in its structure. Despite living in some harsh times, the upcoming Rolls-Royce Phantom will not be getting downsized engines and future owners of these models will still be able to hear the roar of the V12. However, that doesn’t mean that a plug-in hybrid version might not be added to the lineup and some voices are saying that a full electric variant may become a possibility too.
