On the inside, the company says everything remains “almost unaltered”, with a slightly thicker steering wheel the only physical change to note.
Tech-wise, the refreshed Phantom sees the launch of ‘Rolls-Royce Connected’, which enables owners to send an address from the Rolls-Royce private members’ app ‘whispers’ to the car. You can now also see the car’s location and health, and contact a dealer if needs be.
Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: “We are acutely conscious of our clients' esteem for and love of their Phantoms. They felt it could not be improved; but while naturally respecting that view, we believe it is always possible, indeed necessary, to gently go further in our pursuit of absolute perfection.
“The subtle changes we have made for the new Phantom Series II have all been minutely considered and meticulously executed. As Sir Henry Royce himself said: ‘Small things make perfection, but perfection is no small thing’.”
