The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII might be out and about thanks to this brochure leak coming all the way from China – and this means the cat is out of the bag ahead of the official reveal later this month.
Three images – not great because they depict a brochure – have been leaked by Chinese website and these seem to legitimately showcase the 2018 Phantom VIII, as there are numerous elements in common with the spy shots captured in the meantime. While the evolutionary trend is something that has plagued the automotive late as of late, this time around with the panache and tradition behind the Phantom we can easily understand BMW Group’s decision to leave the styling on an evolutionary path. At the front we can observe the classic shiny chrome grille, flanked by full-LED headlights with a modern look – while the bumper looks brand new.
The shots present a two-tone Phantom VIII with a lovely blue upper body and color-coordinated wheel caps. Moving inside, we can see what appears to be an all-new digital instrument cluster, while the dashboard retains the same general design – albeit with numerous small changes. The Phantom VIII should come with re-positioned central air vents, a larger – but still hidden – infotainment screen, as well as re-positioned controls and analog clock. The steering wheel also appears to be all-new, with three spokes in glossy black and different physical buttons. The tip also announces an exact date for the reveal of the model – July 27.
