2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom Interior And Exterior / 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom First Look
At the front, below the headlights, there are the driving lights while the fascia will be revised. It is unclear about the styling of the air dam and corner vents. There could be a taller front end so there is less of a descending slope on the hood. But, it might changes as the production starts. There is traditional Phantom styling at the side with unchanged doors, mirrors, body lines, and the glass. There is hatchback like appearance at the back with the crease between the body and the rear glass aligns with the rear deck lid.
The interior is still a mystery including the console, center stack, and door panels but the cabin might receive tons of modifications later on. Styling will not be too radical as there will be an evolution of the current design inside. The technology department is the most important updates featuring include bigger screen, a hi-tech infotainment system, gesture control and LED ambient lighting. The latest BMW 7 Series has already featured gesture control and Rolls-Royce might follow. The instrument cluster is fully digital. The center stack features clocks as an option. All the information is provided by a big LCD screen on the instrument cluster.
