The work is a maxim of its founder Sir Henry Royce - "strive for perfection in everything you do" - and the design team has spent four years developing this innovative model. Using the latest technology, inspired by the rich heritage of the company, their goal was to cut: develop 21 st century, Rolls-Royce, which would be truly worthy of the famous Spirit of Ecstasy.

The result was the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Built on a new state-of-the-art factory in Goodwood, this flagship Rolls-Royce secured its revival by combining the spirit of his ancestors celebrated with advanced technology and technology visionary.


Creating a strong identity for the Rolls-Royce Phantom was important, says chief designer Ian Cameron: "Our priority was to create a car that was obviously a Rolls-Royce from any angle, even if the Spirit of Ecstasy and the grid could not be famous to be seen. "

To identify this core essence, the design team immersed themselves in the brand and its history. It highlighted the elements of classic style, a long bonnet, wide C-pillars and discrete windows, all of which were incorporated into the design of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Its powerful, permanent and dynamic, rising profile also unmistakable Rolls-Royce.

However, advanced features like an aluminum frame and single motor gasoline direct injection pioneered leave no doubt that this is a car in the forefront of technology.

Exactly the same can be said about the unique coach back doors, which are evidence of advanced technologies available in the entire Rolls-Royce Phantom. Hinges on the back, they allow rear passengers in and out of the car free of charge and can be closed with the touch of a button.

The controls are not necessary for everyday driving are kept out of sight until needed. The multi-media, for example, is hidden behind a rotating panel in the center of the dashboard, which normally shows an analog clock round. This apparent simplicity extends to the operation of controls as well: even the very sophisticated audio system can be operated with a single button.

Formula 1 car. Entirely by hand, using about 120 meters of welding, the frame is finished as if it were a precision instrument: Each is controlled by laser to ensure accuracy in a fraction of a millimeter. The frame is placed on a platform of computer-guided machine - the largest car industry - at the critical points are machined with unprecedented accuracy.

Without the need to provide structural support, the panels of Rolls-Royce Phantom bodies are simply placed on the chassis.

Made of lightweight aluminum and composite materials, which adds a minimum weight of the car. Only the boot is made of steel, designed to facilitate 50/50 weight distribution so desirable for perfect handling.

The extraordinary integrity of the spatial structure of aluminum also offers significant advantages of security, which provide excellent occupant protection. But this is not the only area where safety is integrated into the design of Rolls-Royce Phantom. The location of the rear seat behind the pillar C, for example, is inherently safer than the traditional position next to the door and deny the need for rear side airbags. In a collision, so the effect is progressively absorbed by crumple zones designed to dissipate the force through the chassis and underbody. Of course, Rolls-Royce Phantom has been designed to pass all current safety laws.In addition, Rolls-Royce Phantom contains a number of safety systems using the latest technology and to guide the

Intelligent Safety and Information System (ISIS). ISIS takes readings from sensors located in different parts of the car, and the event of a collision, will make up to 4000 calculations, the second to establish its severity, and before the use of airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, or necessary . ISIS works in conjunction with other security systems installed by Rolls-Royce Phantom, including Dynamic Stability Control and Dynamic Traction Control.
