What appears to be the next generation of the Rolls Royce Phantom has been spied recently near a testing location in Germany. The nearby testing location belongs to BWM. The Rolls Royce Phantom underwent the knife for a facelift back in 2012, but that has been the main alteration in quite a stretch of time. The car spied testing appears to have a few noteworthy changes.
The Rolls Royce Phantom test mule testing within range to a BMW test site could mean a hybrid powertrain is being developed. The car had four exhaust pipes poking directly out the rear and two extra intakes up front. Some are guessing that the next generation of the Rolls Royce Phantom will be based on the BMW 7-Series, but with some serious tweaks.
The current Phantom model has been around for over a decade, with minimal alterations in both the styling and power arenas. The Rolls Royce Ghost and Phantom models are typical flagship models, they have a devoted following of buyers and collectors. These types of luxury grand touring vehicles never go out of style, but after a time they must make changes necessary to compete with other brands. This theory is especially important when technology is factored into play. With brands like BMW and Mercedes-Benz integrating every possible technology into their offerings, even brands like Bentley and Rolls Royce are realizing the need to follow suit.
Overall, the next Rolls Royce Phantom could pack an all-new powertrain and slightly revised appearance. With it being a popular chauffeured vehicle, we hope to see a seriously cool influx of technology into the nice lady, too!
