Rolls-Royce Reveals Its New Phantom: A £350,000 Work Of Automotive Art That It Promises Will Be 'The Most Silent Car In The World'

Rolls-Royce Phantom pro,ises to be world's most silent car
Whisper it softly, but the quietest and most technically advanced Rolls-Royce ever was launched in London tonight. The flagship Rolls-Royce Phantom, pictured, is designed to whisk the world's wealthiest around in the lap of luxury - and it comes with its own dashboard art gallery for those who can afford the £350,000 price tag. The new Phantom even paves the way for a future all-electric Rolls-Royce, ready to comply with Government moves to ban the sale of new 'conventional' petrol and diesel vehicles from 2040. Pictured is inside the vehicle, which features a drinks cabinet with whisky glasses, high gloss wood panelling and high resolution 12.3inch monitors.

On the basis that silence is golden and the new Phantom limousine is ‘a work of art’, Rolls-Royce say their new Phantom is ‘the most silent motor car in the world’ and the quietest Rolls-Royce ever made –at least for the pampered chauffeur-driven occupant in the back.
The launch was hailed as another big vote of confidence in Britain – with the big Roller exported around the globe and considered the pinnacle of British automotive craftsmanship
Bosses at Rolls-Royce’s parent company BMW – which earlier this week announced they were building an electric Mini in the UK – said the new Phantom demonstrated that they remain ‘fully committed to the future of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’, based at Goodwood, in West Sussex.

Beneath the Phantom’s smart suit lies some serious engineering. 
The new limousine’s ‘revolutionary’ flexible chassis design can also be used for a variety of future models – including ‘those with different propulsion systems’ such as an electric drive-train, said Rolls-Royce.
It will also underpin the forthcoming Rolls-Royce 4X4 – codenamed ‘Project Cullinan’ after the diamond used in the Crown Jewels – and also the next generation Ghost, Wraith, and Dawn models as well as future bespoke ‘coach-build’ projects.

The chauffeured passenger can look up to see the largest Starlight 'headliner' ever seen in a Rolls-Royce, comprising pinpricks of light in the roof.
He or she is surrounded by high gloss and exquisitely tactile' wood panelling in the door interiors, centre consoles, dashboard and picnic tables. The armrests are inspired by the classic J-Class yacht.
The sweep of wood panelling across the back of the front seats are influenced by the famous Eames Lounge Chair of 1956 which is part of the New York Museum of Modern Art’s permanent display.If you do decide to slip behind the steering wheel, the Rolls-Royce Phantom offers sports car rivalling stats, with 0 to 62mph despatched in 5.3 seconds - many buyers may choose not to opt for a purple hued steering wheel though
