The modernization of New Rolls-Royce’s flagship product did not result in any overall changes to its external appearance. However, all types of revolutions are initially contraindicated by such status cars. Also, in the technology of change, more than enough, and they start with the most important – the platform.
Especially for the new Phantom, the British have developed a “Chariot” entirely of aluminum, simply called Architecture of Luxury. The modular platform, designed from scratch, will become the product of domestic consumption only and will form the basis of all future New Rolls-Royce models, including the Cullinan crossover.
The body of the New Rolls-Royce Phantom 2020, unlike the previous version, is manufactured by a carrier. It is designed in a constructive way for the universal use of aluminum and its alloys, which brings the necessary lightness and strength to the frame. Thus, the torsional rigidity has increased by 30%.
A significant gain was also observed in the weight characteristics, but only a large mass of attachments leveled it. As a result, in the equipped condition, the sedan began to weigh a little more than its predecessor – 2625 versus 2550 kg. It is curious that the sound insulation materials alone were “tightened” at scales of about 130 kg, but the benefit of their application was quite noticeable – the acoustic floor inside had improved by 10%.
The external dimensions of the eighth “New Rolls-Royce Phantom 2020” differ somewhat from the dimensions of the 7th generation bodywork. The wheelbase reduced to 3552 mm. As a result of the adjustment, it was 5762 mm, whereas it was previously 5 839 mm (difference – 77 mm).
These figures refer to the usual version of the Phantom, but there is also a long-term variation of the EWB. Its length and inter-axis distance are respectively 5962 and 3752 mm. As for the other sizes, they both coincide in both versions: the width of the body is 2020 mm (+29 mm) and the height of 1646 mm (+8 mm).
Exterior and interior design
If you put a number of seventh and eighth generation cars, the difference between them will only be taken into account if you look closely at the details. Prompt immediately to look at the falshradiator and the optics of the head. The grille, covered with vertical decks, is now part of the body and is made of polished stainless steel by hand.
It is slightly raised compared to the previous position, with its crowned , from the upper part of the grille, a thin strip of steel forms the edges of the hood and surrounds the frame of the windshield.
Updated calendar design
New Rolls-Royce Phantom’s headlights have acquired new graphics and more advanced optical fill. Beside LEDs, laser-phosphor blocks have been prescribed here, providing a brightness range of up to 600 meters.
The profile of the novelty has well-known proportions with an extended horizontal hood, a short front and long rear overhangs (with proportions of 1: 2), a characteristic corrugated elbow, a powerful rear pillar, vertical like chopped. The side glazing frames and door handles are finished with the same hand polished steel, the wheel arches have record-size 22-inch rims with 255/45 R22 rubber. Also a noticed nuance is that a special layer of foam is applied to the inner surface of Continental tires, which guarantees a noise reduction of 9 dB compared to conventional tires
Silhouette of the model
New Rolls-Royce Phantom’s 2020 Salon as a whole has retained the old architecture, but without slight adjustments, designed to refresh the interior space, still does not have. First, the front panel has slightly changed, the upper part is called the manufacturer “gallery”. It’s a combination of hidden elements under a single pane of glass, including a 12.25-inch retractable center screen of a multimedia system, and a traditional analog clock..
Architecture of the interior
Information and entertainment complex Phantom meets all modern multimedia requirements: navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, gadget integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interfaces. An interesting feature is that the system is controlled by a swivel washer installed on the armrest pad. This arrangement is similar to the novelty of the previous generation, which also borrowed the original three-spoke steering wheel, round deflectors for ventilation, a climate system block with practical temperature regulators.
The doors of the New Rolls-Royce Phantom 2020 luxury sedan are powered by an electric motor and traditionally open to each other. The buyer can choose from five variants of a double or triple row configuration. Available variants include separate recliners, classic seats with folding armrests and seats with a fixed center console.

Technical specifications of the New Rolls-Royce Phantom Ghost 2020
The heart of the new Rolls-Royce Phantom 2020 will be the old 6.75-liter V12 unit, which survived a thorough upgrade. As a result, the engine received two turbochargers and a new “stuffing” technique (pistons, connecting rods, etc.). Following the changes, the engine power has increased to 571 hp. (460 hp before) and 900 Nm (instead of 720 Nm).
The company’s engine will be an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. Such cooperation allows a massive acceleration of the sedan to 100 km / h in just 5.3 seconds, while the “maximum” of the vehicle is limited to 250 km / h. Enhanced engine 6.75 V12
The new platform involves the use of a dual-lever front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension. The chassis is equipped with adaptive dampers and air springs that can change the damping characteristics and the position of the bodywork.
Also, the active control system, called Magic Carpet Ride, sends signals to the suspension aspect based on the readings of a stereo camera mounted under the windshield. The engineers made sure to increase the handling of the car in close urban conditions by providing a rotating rear axle.
