2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom

Is this truly pioneering luxury or British conservativism, pointing a reputable manufacturer design barriers? Ferdinand Piëch, who was also interested in Rolls-Royce and loves Italian design, will probably smile when he looks at how carefully BMW has to deal with the eighth generation of the Phantom since 925. But he did not get much better in his time with Bentley.

Design behind the times . . .

Sorry, but the front still has the charm of a postwar wardrobe. Only the side view can reconcile something with its barely visible joint lines. At the rear, BMW is still connecting to the phantom models of the 1950s and 1960s itself. And many trims have never been expressing particular styling, even if they are as here made from hand-polished stainless steel.

Inside the car the world is then again more than in order. Perhaps one or another will be envious at a trip with the quietestl car in the world. No, an electric car can not keep up because even the tire noise has been reduced by a special foam layer to the cavities sides.

If you limit yourself to four adults, they sit as in the lap of the gods. Everything, which is not needed, is somehow foldable away. And yet, any modernity is available, including a head-up display and an LED screen, which is not very high, but its width reaches 12.3-inch diagonal.

Further to the right, the analogue clock is not as beautiful as Daimler's. But the idea with an individual work of art on the right in the dashboard would have been a pleasure for Daimler's Maybach. In addition to the turbo-powered engine, the laser light up to 600 m is also worth mentioning.

If you own a (detached) single-family dwelling, the sale will presumably not be enough, because already the previous Phantom was well over 400,000 euro. So you do not have to worry about the effect of CO2 emissions on the environment, because in the 92 years of its existence have just been sold between 150 and 200 per year. 08/17
