The 2015 Rolls Royce Phantom Is The Best Of The Best
Titled as the world’s best vehicle, the 2015 Rolls Royce Phantom has been on top of the automotive industry for 12 years straight. It was revealed back in 2003 and ever since it remained one of the most sought after luxurious saloons ever devised by a man. Being almost 13 years on the market certainly meant that Rolls Royce developed and sold tens of different bespoke versions of the Phantom and now for the 2015 model year, the Phantom Series II continues the path of perfection laid out by its predecessors.
The Phantom Series II was introduced back in 2012 and while it did not actually become a whole new generation of the car, the Rolls Royce Phantom Series II brings a wealth of improvements and modern equipment to the world of Rolls Royce. Starting from the outside the Phantom Series II brings full LED front lights, additional chrome detailing on the rear lights, a bit more interesting decorative elements on the outside and standard 21 inch wheels. Moving on the inside the car received a wealth of updates starting with the addition of a bit different front dash, better sorted doors and slightly different infotainment system now operated over 8.8 inch touch display which is hidden behind the wooden panel at the dash.
These changes definitely bring the Phantom to the world of Internet, world of USB sticks, iPads and Bluetooth, but the elements that remained unchanged keep it well behind the lines of ultimate luxury and utmost perfection Rolls Royce is known for. As for the 2015, Rolls Royce created a number of different special edition versions of the Phantom Series II. Specially devised versions created by Rolls Royce Bespoke division are often offered only to a selected few and they employ the most perfectly crafted elements Rolls Royce is able to produce. However, even the regular the 2015 Rolls Royce Phantom Series II offers the best possible interior and exterior features.
The fact that the woodwork lasted for 18 days tells a lot. Meticulously crafted elements in the cabin are often perfected for months in advance and while only the best materials are used, Rolls Royce also makes use of the top notch leather in worrying quantities (if you like). In average, 15 hides are needed for the creation of the leather found in Rolls Royce interior (sometimes up to 20). The best hides are used and every imperfection is discarded. In total, 60 people work up to 450 hours on one car thus making every square inch of it as perfect as possible.
As before, power is provided by the 6.75 liter V12 engine developing more than 450 HP and 720 Nm of torque. As this is a rather large and heavy saloon, the acceleration to 60 is somewhere around 5.7 seconds, which isn’t that bad. Of course, it is impossible to accelerate to 60 as serene and as peaceful as in the 2015 Rolls Royce Phantom.
