It was in 1925 that a man named Sir Henry Royce introduced an iconic vehicle known today as the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Considered by many to be the best car in the world, and many more to be the best luxury item—not just car—across the globe, the Phantom has been turning heads and dropping jaws for decades. Now, just a few years before the vehicle’s centennial, the Phantom has been taken into its eighth generation, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result.

“Phantom is the epitome of effortless style, a historical nameplate that occupies a rarefied space in the luxury constellation and conjures a rare magic all of its own. New Phantom raises a glass to an illustrious design legacy whilst forging a modern and revitalized present for the next era of Rolls-Royce design.”
– Giles Taylor, Director of Design, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
While we’d love to pour over every detail of the cabin and even the exterior of the new Phantom VIII, our words won’t do the vehicle justice like the images above will. So instead, we thought we’d dive into the most exciting information that you can’t determine just by looking at it: performance. The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII is powered by a brand-new 6.75L V12 engine.
Not only does this new engine deliver an incredible 563 horsepower, but it also generates nearly 665 pound-feet of torque at the astoundingly low rate of 1,700 rpm. Accompanied by its 8-speed Satellite Aided Transmission, the Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII delivers an enjoyable experience behind the wheel every time.
And that is true whether you are the driver, or a passenger in the backseat. We believe everyone will truly enjoy their experience inside the new Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII, no matter who they are or where they’re sitting.
