Development of the latest luxury representative sedan business the extremely responsible, especially, so far as concerns producers of the Rolls-Royce level, a mistake to whom clients with an experience, usually, don\'t forgive.
Here, the truth it is worth reminding that the company since the beginning of a new eyelid belongs to BMW who assumed all cares on ensuring technological compliance of Rolls-Royce cars them to the status. And considering that Phantom, from this car demand special became the first product in this union once. The car on the basis of BMW-7 in a body with the E65/E66 index was constructed. From it besides a platform the sedan received the most part of knots and units, and also practically all electronic systems, including the front line for that time multimedia iDrive system.
The external type of Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII was solved in classical style, in other words, Phantom resembled restored the Westminster palace.
But ten years to modern automobile measures — age more than serious therefore producers took care preparation of the successor of this model. There is no place to hurry to engineers of the company especially. The British giant practically has no competitors. The production program of Maybach in Daimler closed as unpromising, and the only real analog is only Mulsanne from competitors from Bentley. Besides, in there we aren\'t ready to offer yet the version in a body of a coupe and a cabriolet, they will be available to clients only in some years so the reasons to hurry aren\'t present and at Rolls-Royce.
As expected, the following, the eighth, Rolls-Royce Phantom generation light will see in 2016. The novelty will be constructed on a platform preparing for release 7er which debuts in three years. It is expected that thanks to bigger amount of aluminum in structure of a body become some centners easier. To all other, a number of elements of a body at the British will be executed from composite materials. As for engines, under a cowl modernized V12 a working volume 6,75 liters, giving out about 600 h.p. will take place. It should work together with 8-step automatic shift. But the most important — besides the classical version with a rear wheel drive at Phantom will appear version with four leaders.
