The current Rolls-Royce Phantom has been on sale since 2003 and received a facelift in 2012 so it’s no wonder work has started on a successor which will likely be introduced in 2017 as a 2018 model. Seen here is a test mule with a significantly lowered ride height and two additional air intakes in the front bumper. In addition, the four exhaust pipes at the back are longer than usual and don’t fit nicely within the rear bumper.

The Phantom is a nameplate which this company uses for over ninety years. However, in modern day, this name is used for company’s flagship model. It is a full-size luxury car, which was released in 2003. One interesting details is that this model is the first car that was introduced in BMW era. It is still under production, but it made through one significant update which was done for 2012 year model. Although there is no official information, it is expected that whole cycle of this model will last for 15 years, so we expect to see a next-generation model in late 2017/early 2018 period, most likely as 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom.

It might look like just another black Rolls-Royce Phantom, but underneath the unassuming (well, unassuming if you’re a Russian oil baron) exterior lies the bones of Rolls-Royce’s next-generation super-limo.

Seen outside one of BMW’s technical centres in Germany (BMW owns Rolls-Royce, remember), this test mule sports more air intakes in the front bumper, a longer exhaust system and new interior elements.

Rolls-Royce engineers recently started public road trials of a test mule for the next-generation Phantom sedan, which we’re expecting to be launched on the market during 2017, as a 2018 model. The test mule was spotted outside a BMW technical center in Germany and features a few distinguishing features that give away its identity (a test mule hides a new car’s mechanicals beneath the body of a current vehicle and is used at the earliest stages of development).

2018 Rolls Royce Phantom Specs

The 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom is now in advanced phase of development. Company’s engineers started with test drives, so testing model has been spotted already for several times. The mule was spotted outside BMW technical center in Germany and although it still wears a heavy camouflage, we can see same of details that will characterize next generation of this luxury car. It is expected that new model will come with new powertrain, especially if we consider that test mule features two new intakes at the front, which are backed up the makeshift exhaust system fitted to the car, at the rear. Alongside standard V12 unit, it is also very possible that we will see a hybrid configuration too, especially if we consider that rivals such as Bentley, also plan to introduce new hybrid vehicles. It is expected that 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom will use BMW’s new rear-wheel-drive platform, debuting in the 2016 BMW 7-Series.

The whole body structure will be made of light materials, such as aluminum or carbon fiber, so new model will be significantly lighter compared to current, which weights around 5.600 pounds. When it’s about cars look, we expect that 2018 Phantom will continue in the same way, featuring same design language, mostly evolutional changes, instead of some radical ones. New model will keep its conventional, but also extremely stylish and elegant look. On the other side, interior is completely unknown for now. At this point, most of the parts are borrowed from BMW 7 Series, but they are used only for testing and won’t be found in production model.

2018 Rolls Royce Phantom Engine

Lightweight carbon fiber construction would certainly aid the car’s dynamics, given the current Phantom (itself using an aluminum spaceframe) weighs in at over 5,600 pounds. It would also help offset the weight of the plug-in hybrid model, which will feature a large battery. Rolls-Royce has ruled out a fully electric model, following feedback on its Phantom 102EX concept, but a plug-in hybrid option could prove popular for buyers in emission-restricted cities. It would also technologically rival Bentley’s upcoming hybrid vehicles. In addition to the plug-in model, a traditional V-12-powered version should remain.

And that could mean the replacement of the ancient naturally-aspirated 338kW 6.7 litre V12 of the current Phantom, with the twin-turbo 400kW 6.0 litre V12 of the BMW 760Li.

The vehicle seen here could feature a plug-in hybrid system sourced from the next generation BMW 7-Series upon which the new Phantom will likely be based. The flagship Bavarian model is expected to lose up to 200 kg as a result of an extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum which could also find its way in the next Phantom, thus shaving some considerably weight from today’s hefty 2,550 kg model. Such a considerable diet would also offset the added hardware commanded by a possible plug-in hybrid variant.

Another option is the use of a unique carbon-aluminium chassis, with a central carbon-fibre tub bookended by aluminium structures for the engine and rear suspension.
