ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM VIII

CULLINAN

The Phantom, first presented in 1925, is the oldest continuously produced car in the world. Where mass producers switch out their models every few years, the luxury liner has shown incredible staying power and has gone through only seven generations. But similarly, as with Buckingham Palace, someone new will move in one day, in the Rolls-Royce factory at Goodwood, there has been a kind of Götterdämmerung. The eighth edition is now available. And with the RollsRoyce Phantom VIII, as well, things are just as they were: anything but ordinary.

Even if the thought of a Rolls-Royce on rough terrain makes you think happily of the desert journeys of Laurence of Arabia, with the RollsRoyce Cullinan, it’s less about adventure and more about the everyday. Where the Phantom and other models are used as vehicles for certain roles, the Cullinan is actually the first Rolls-Royce that one can use all the time and anywhere. But in spite of its full suitability for everyday use, no need to worry, for all its practicality, the hitherto accustomed luxury of a Rolls-Royce does not lag behind in this pièce de résistance of all SUVs.

PHANTOM EXTENDED WHEELBASE The long wheelbase version of the new Phantom can also be ordered with the Privacy Suite providing a partition between the driver and the rear seats. For increased privacy, you can dim the pane of glass at the push of a button so the rear passengers are shielded from curious glimpses from those at the front. Of course, there is a whole host of luxury as well for the guests in the back seat, such as a fridge in the centre console with champagne glasses and an infotainment system with two 12” touchscreens. Since each Phantom Extended Wheelbase is custom designed, there is no price specified for this at Rolls-Royce.

JUMP IN AND DELVE INTO A WORLD OF NOBLENESS AND TRADITION.
