Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II launched in Malaysia, from RM2.5 million

Anas Zawawi Khalid, Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Kuala Lumpur launches Phantom Series II in Malaysia

AFTER the launch of the Spectre last year, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Kuala Lumpur is debuting yet another new model to the local market, namely the Phantom Series II.

The eighth generation Phantom was introduced back in 2017 as the first Rolls-Royce car to utilise the brand’s all-aluminium spaceframe dubbed the ‘Architect of Luxury’, which has gone to underpin every new Rolls-Royce.

For the latest iteration, only the slightest of changes have been incorporated to meet the demand of the clients, who have implored Rolls-Royce not to make any major changes to an already iconic car.

On the outside, you’ll find a new polished horizontal line between the daytime running lights above the Pantheon grille, as well as a subtle geometric change to the grille itself to futher accentuate the RR badge and Spirit of Ecstasy mascot.

The headlights feature intricate laser-cut bezel starlights, while the Phantom’s side profile is further enhanced with new 3D, milled, stainless steel wheels with triangle facets that can be had in either fully or part-polished finish.

Alternatively, customers may opt for disc wheels inspired by 1920’s Rolls-Royce motor cars.

Not only that, Rolls-Royce also offers a darkened chrome grille surround, as well as black bonnet reins, windscreen surround and side frame finishers.

The Phantom’s interior remains largely untouched, save for the steering wheel, which has been made slightly thicker for a more engaging driving experience.

Under the bonnet is a 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine that is capable of making 563 hp at 5,000 rpm and 900 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm. With an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Phantom sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds.

In Malaysia, the Phantom is available in base and Extended versions, priced at RM2.5 million and RM2.9 million before tax, respectively.
