    2003 Rolls-Royce Phantom

    http://www.supercars.net/PicFetch?pic=2003_rolls-royce_phantom-1.jpg Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited has revealed the all-new Rolls-Royce Phantom today at the company's new manufacturing plant and head office at Goodwood in West Sussex, UK. It is just four and a half years since BMW Group became the custodians of the Rolls-Royce marque for automotive use, in July 1998, and committed to launch a new company, a new plant and a new motor car in January 2003. Entirely new from the ground up, the Rolls-Royce Phantom captures the essence of the world's most famous car brand, interpreted in an utterly modern way. Influenced by the guiding principles of Sir Henry Royce, Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it, the design and engineering teams began with a blank sheet of paper. The result is a motor car which incorporates cutting edge engineering technology, unparalleled quality and the finest in hand-built craftsmanship. The Phantom has a light-weight aluminium space frame body, a V12 engine which develops tremendous power and torque and a style, inside and out, which is every inch a Rolls-Royce. Designers immersed themselves in the heritage and design principles which had made Rolls-Royce world famous and found particular inspiration in the Phantom I and II models of the 1930s, the Silver Cloud of the 1950s and the Silver Shadow of the 1960s. Features like a long wheelbase, a short front overhang, a deep C-pillar, a long bonnet and a particular stance, which made these motor cars look as if they were lightly accelerating even at a standstill, were fundamental design elements and were incorporated into the new Phantom - quite apart from the famous grille and The Spirit of Ecstasy mascot. On the inside, the finest leather, Cashmere trim and fitted cabinetry have been used to create an atmosphere which is simple, yet of unquestionable quality. Access is via coach doors, which open from the centre of the car (the rear doors hinged at the back) reminiscent of the classic Rolls-Royce era and which have been chosen to give easy access to the rear. Combined with a flat floor they allow passengers simply to walk in to the rear, turn and sit down. A slightly curved lounge seat helps to create a social environment. The Rolls-Royce Phantom is easy yet rewarding to drive - something which is vitally important as the majority of owners will drive themselves most of the time. The high driving position gives an excellent view. Intuitive and effortless to drive, the Phantom is beautifully refined and precise in its responses. Self-levelling air springs, electronic dampers and multi-link rear, double wishbone front suspension combine with the long wheelbase and high profile tyres to give the perfect combination of ride and handling. The large wheels and tyres have been specially developed for the Phantom: it is the first car in the world to feature the advanced PAX run-flat tyre system as standard, which allows the car to run for 100 miles at 50 mph after a puncture. On the move, the purpose-designed 6.75-litre V12 engine provides huge reserves of power and torque. The Rolls-Royce Phantom will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds (0-100 kph 5.9 seconds) and on to a limited top speed of 149 mph (240 kph). Behind the wheel, the low-down torque wafts the Phantom swiftly yet effortlessly from tick-over. Peak torque is 720 Nm (531 lb ft) at 3500 rpm, but more importantly 75 per cent of that total is developed at just 1000 rpm. Maximum power is 460 PS (338 kW). The latest in combustion technology - variable valve lift, variable valve timing and direct fuel injection - helps produce excellent fuel economy for a motor car of the Phantom's size and power. On the EU extra urban cycle it returns 25.7 mpg (11.0 l/100 km) and a combined figure of 17.8 mpg (15.9 l/100 km). As well as the main features of the Phantom, there are a number of delightful detail touches which help to make this such a special motor car - something in which Rolls-Royce has always taken pride. For example; the electrically retractable Spirit of Ecstasy, which can be lowered out of sight whenever the Phantom is parked; the wheel hub centres, bearing the interlinked double-R logo, which remain upright; and the umbrellas which will be found stowed within each rear door. Tony Gott, chairman and chief executive of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, says: For nearly 100 years, Rolls-Royce has been the icon of motor engineering and design. The name has entered the language as an expression of perfection. The new Rolls-Royce Phantom is, we believe, entirely in keeping with that long and illustrious heritage, yet is totally contemporary in its design and technology. Its name evokes the personality of the Phantom I and II models of the 1930s and reflects timeless values of quality, distinction and authority, combining the best of the past with the best modern design, engineering and technology to take Rolls-Royce firmly into the 21st century.

  3. A tycoon who owns a chain of budget hotels is suing the authorised agent of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars here over an alleged flaw in a $1.4 million Phantom limousine he bought four years ago. Mr James Koh Wee Meng, 49, the man behind the Fragrance chain of budget hotels, appointed Senior Counsel Davinder Singh of Drew & Napier to file the suit last November. In it, he claimed the car made loud thumping and whirring noises when moving out of a three-point turn when he took delivery of it on or around Dec 23, 2008. He also claimed that he felt 'significant vibration' from its steering wheel. He claimed the agent, Trans Eurokars, had failed to rectify these repeatedly, and is therefore seeking damages. http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/S...ory_759941.html
  4. Stomper Max P shared this photo of a Rolls Royce that had caught fire at Loyang Avenue this afternoon (April 13). Several other vehicles have caught fire recently, with the latest incident involving a white hatchback car that near Yishun Stadium on April 10. Stomper Max wrote in an email to Stomp: "Rolls Royce on fire at Loyang Avenue exit from PIE. Took this just now at 1.35pm. "We were passing by, not sure if anybody was injured. "At the time when we passed by, the Rhino firefighters just arrived. "Half of the backside of the car was burned and disintegrated already." Is that an old Rolls Royce? How come the rear caught fire first? Fuel leak?

  8. Only in China...everything must be long. They got long wheel base 5 series, E-class, A4, porsche panamera, etc. Maybe next will be LWB Farrari/Lambo! Now Roll Royce also must bow down to the china market and make a long wheel base Rolls. For the girl friends to kneel down more comfortably is it? http://paultan.org/2011/04/20/rolls-royce-...ket/#more-57529 Chinese bosses love legroom and want lots of it, which is why we see

    Rolls Royce in a HDB carpark

    we've seen it all. replicas and homages of cult symbols. i-clones --> iphones, RXW --> panerai Lancers/Civics --> Evo/Type R KIAS --> WRX Turbo but this one takes the cake. i saw a BIG stately car in a humble carpark at serangoon north. it is MITSUOKA GALUE. as i've never seen one upclose before, i went to it to admire it at close range. to my surprise (or utter disgust), the owner had "converted" the whole car to RR. ROLLS-ROYCE! there is a RR emblem at the bonnet, even the rims had RR wheel caps! is this paying homage to RR, or is this plain deception? can the owner be sued?

  13. The insatiable appetite for luxury cars has brought about the Rolls-Royce Ghost to a whole new level. Saying that, what exactly does it mean by a whole new level? It's like utilising the power of technology to improve a certain work of art. From The Terminator to Transformers. Or perhaps from a non-coloured Nokia cell phone to a dashing iPhone. Or it could just be from Phantom to Ghost. /center]While it's hard not to make it too big a deal, for this car, it could just be remotely related to most people's idea of it. How not to? With the price of $969,000 (as of 21 March 2010) and the world-infamous flying lady mascot on the nose, the Ghost is a heavyweight car. The all new Rolls-Royce Ghost has alternatively been described as small or baby Rolls. It's because this luxurious car is bigger than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class but slightly smaller than the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Since 2003, when the brand was transferred from Volkswagen to BMW, the line has included just one model - the Phantom and its four different variations. Needless to say, all that has changed with the introduction of the stunning new model. Nevertheless, the Ghost is envisioned more as a driver's car. It includes requisite technologies like iPod interface and automatic-distance cruise control, which also means a performance oriented bodywork, an eight-speed automatic transmission and a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12.
