Rolls Royce Launches the 2018 Phantom VIII in India at ₹11.35 Crore
Rolls Royce has launched the 8th-generation Phantom in India. The base price of the Phantom VIII is Rs. 9.5 crore, while the extended wheelbase version costs Rs. 11.35 crore (ex-showroom, India). The new Phantom is based on an aluminium space frame platform that is claimed to be lighter and more rigid than the outgoing model. The Phantom VIII comes in a familiar design package. The front end features Rolls Royce's Pantheon grille finished in chrome flanked by full-LED headlights with DRLs. The iconic 'Spirit of Ecstasy' hood ornament sits on top of the grille and is retractable. Moving to the side, the new Phantom has a bold shoulder line that runs along the length of the car. It has rear suicide doors and chrome trim around the window frames. The rear features a raked windshield and boot with a chrome garnish. The tail lamp design has been slightly tweaked and now features LEDs, while the redesigned rear bumper houses twin chrome exhaust tips.
