Mansory Tunes the Rolls-Royce Phantom, Speaks About Elegance and Automotive Perfection
After the rivaling Bentley Mulsanne left the car world over three years ago, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is pretty much considered the epitome of automotive luxury. The latest generation dates back to 2017 and does not have anything in common with the 7 Series or any other BMW out there.

Based on the Architecture of Luxury, which is what the automaker has named the platform, it shares some components with the smaller Ghost and the Cullinan SUV. It is the same opulent luxury land yacht that we all know, and since no other engine was suitable for it, it rocks a V12.

The twin-turbo 6.75-liter unit is normally good for 563 hp (571 ps/420 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. It takes around six seconds to sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) from stock, and that may not break any records. But don't forget that this is a ride that has a curb weight of well over two and a half tons (~5,640 pounds) in the normal configuration and more when it comes to the long wheelbase variant.

Curious how much power the one pictured above has? So are we, but Mansory hasn’t disclosed the output and thrust. Their previous projects involving the Rolls-Royce Phantom did feature more oomph, as the twin-turbo V12 was massaged to produce 601 hp (610 ps/449 kW) and 701 lb-ft (950 Nm). As a result, it is probably one or two-tenths faster to sixty-two miles per hour than the stock one.

On the outside, the British company's luxury sedan features a reinterpreted lower section of the front bumper with an apron attached to it. It has additional DRL strips, new side trim, side skirt attachments, a sporty diffuser with incorporated tailpipes, a trunk lid spoiler, and another one mounted above the rear windshield. The chrome was replaced by black trim, and it has a dark blue finish and several forged carbon elements. With a larger diameter, the new wheels wear black and have different center caps.

Unfortunately, Mansory was not too keen to fully reveal the interior in the images released on social media and shared above. However, it is clear that it has a minty touch with reupholstered seats, door cards, center console, steering wheel, lower sections of the dashboard, and likely other parts. Their logo can be seen on the headrests, steering wheel, seatbelts, and probably on other parts of the cabin, and they pretty much round off the aftermarket makeover of the otherwise spectacular car.

And if you must know, Mansory refers to it as "setting new standards in automotive perfection" by combining "style and power in perfect harmony." That's what the caption pretty much says, without revealing any highlights about this build, which may or may not be for sale.
