The final word in limousine luxury has arrived. That is, until the 2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom is revea

The 2019 Rolls-Royce Phantom has finally arrived in Manila, presented to select members of the media and a number of clients at the Bonifacio Global City Arts Center. An intimate gathering created a lounge like atmosphere, complete with a showcase of the history of the Phantom, spanning 93 years and eight generations.

The all-new 2019 Rolls-Royce Phantom aims to redefine the ultra-luxury segment in the country, offering new details, new technology, and a number of improvements to keep it at the top of those desiring for only the best in automobile opulence.

Designed by Marcus Syring, former head of design at MINI, the completely handbuilt Phantom is powered by a twin turbo 6.75L V12 engine that makes 563 hp and 900 Nm of torque mated to an eight speed transmission. Of course this engine is barely heard inside the cabin, despite the Phantom being deceptively brisk with a zero to 100 km/h time of around 5.4 seconds for both the short and extended wheelbase variants. The Phantom’s dimensions differ greatly between the two, with the short wheelbase offering up 5,762mm in length, 1,646mm in height, and 3,552 mm in wheelbase. The longer wheelbase variant is 5,982mm, 1,656mm, and 3,772mm in length, height, and wheelbase respectively.

Enter the Phantom and you’re immediately encased in a cocoon of silence, surrounded by bespoke materials and the highest level of detail you can find in the automotive industry. From the thick carpet to the English cowhide leather, and even the touches of curated wood and billeted metal, the cabin experience of a Rolls-Royce is elevated once more. Rear passengers have a multitude of seating options and a set of multifunction display screens hidden behind high-end materials. In fact, the technology only makes itself known when it is needed, with knobs and switches only appearing and operating when desired. This is alongside a more refined “Magic Carpet Ride” experience, with improvements to vehicle architecture, suspension, and even tires. The 2019 Rolls-Royce is now stiffer, lighter, and ultimately, still the quietest cabin experience in the world.

Naturally, as with every Rolls-Royce, the 2019 Phantom comes with a multitude of options and bespoke choices for the discerning client. The highlight is “The Gallery”, a completely customizable piece of hardened glass that spans the dashboard, that allows buyers to display anything that their heart desires. Feel like commissioning an artist to make a one-off design? Feel free to do so. The near limitless combination of materials, colors, and design choices ensure that almost every Rolls-Royce that comes off the showroom floor is essentially unique.

The 2019 Rolls-Royce Phantom is now available for viewing and purchase at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manila in Bonifacio Global City as of this writing, with pricing that varies depending on the variant and number of options.
