Rolls-Royce is set to introduce the 2018 Phantom or the Phantom VIII which will be officially revealed at an exhibition in Mayfair, London on 27th July this year. The exhibition known as 'The Eight Great Phantoms' will narrate each Phantom model's story and its historical contribution right from the Phantom I, which has been lent by The Peterson Museum to the British carmaker for the event. Like all previous Rolls-Royce Phantom versions, the new Phantom VIII will be nothing short of pure elegance with the use of luxurious materials and high-quality wood finished panels. A side profile with the suicide doors opened also suggests space to keep umbrellas will be retained. Like the previous version, a number of analogue dials will be carried forward but may come on a fully digital instrument cluster. The clock, however, is expected to be a completely analogue unit stating the fact that this is the epitome of luxury in every way.

The new Phantom VIII will be underpinned by the company's new space frame architecture which will also be used for Rolls-Royce's first SUV, the Cullinan. The new platform will make it considerably lighter than the outgoing model which tips the scales just under the 2.7-tonne mark. Along with a four-wheeled steering setup, the new Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII will have better handling characteristics, particularly while negotiating tight turns. Although, we doubt a Rolls-Royce will be taken through congested streets, especially in a country like India, ever. Power is expected to come from the 6.75-litre V12 used in the Phantom VII or the twin turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 used in the new Dawn.

The new Phantom VIII will be teased through a series of images as well as videos of each model that has been introduced so far over the coming weeks. The British carmaker will also offer bespoke options such a paint jobs exclusive to customers along with customisable interiors. And like all previous models from Rolls-Royce, the Phantom VIII will exude elegance in every way.
