Vehicle Overview

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is an ultraluxury V-12-powered sedan available in regular- and long-wheelbase body styles. This posh vehicle blends British heritage with German components and technology, as the Rolls-Royce brand is owned by BMW. The Phantom competes with the Bentley Mulsanne and Maybach Type 57. The long-wheelbase model competes with the Maybach Type 62. The Phantom Coupe and Drophead Coupe (convertible) are covered in separate reports in the Cars.com Research section.

New for 2013
The Phantom lineup gets a new front bumper design for 2013 with standard LED headlights. Technology changes include an updated navigation system with 3-D map display and an updated camera system with top, rear and split-front views. There is also a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior
The Phantom has a long hood with a short front overhang and long rear overhang. The traditionally styled front features an upright face with recessed, rectangular headlamps and prominently displayed fog lamps. The regular Phantom has an approximately 140-inch wheelbase and 229.7-inch overall length, and the extended model’s dimensions are about 150 inches for the wheelbase and 239.5 inches overall.
