All cars owned by the billionaire Ambanis are expensive but this one here is the most expensive of them. This latest-generation Roll Royce Phantom Series VII Extended Wheel Base (EWB) is the most expensive non-armoured car in the Ambani’s garage, which is also popularly known as the Jio Garage. It should be noted that the Ambani garage already has vehicles like Lamborghini Urus, Rolls Royce Cullinan, Tesla Model S, Mercedes-AMG G63, Land Rover Range Rover SVR and more such vehicles.
The latest-generation Rolls Royce Phantom VIII EWB measures a massive 5,762mm, which makes it extremely long. To give you perception, it is longer than a standard Force Traveller. This is one of the most expensive Rolls Royce ever and is one of the most expensive cars in the market. The cost? Without any customisation options, it costs Rs 13.5 crore. Now we all know how much the Ambani clan love customisation and almost all their vehicles are highly customised including the colours of the cabin and the interior.
It is seldom that someone buying a Rolls Royce will not choose a few optional extras and all the options costs at least a few lakh rupees. Rolls Royce offers the largest customisation option in the world. There are about 44,000 colour options to choose and other options like seat material, dashboard material, steering, sprit of ecstasy, and more such options.
The pictures posted by Car Crazy India last year and the car was then spotted by Cs 12 Vlogs. It is an all-new vehicle that is based on a new aluminium spaceframe. Rolls Royce calls it the “Architecture of Luxury” and it is 30% lighter compared to the frame used by the outgoing model. The all-new Phantom has also become bigger in size. It is about 8mm taller and 29mm wider, however, the overall length has been shortened by 77mm to make it agiler on the roads and easy to turn.
Other features including the signature 24-slat grille the front is decorated with two sleek headlamps. The headlamps are LED projector lamps with LED DRLs that add a unique identity to the vehicle. Even the rear gets a new shape and it has become much sharper than before. The design of the all-new Rolls Royce Phantom is inspired by the yacht. It gets a dual-tone paint job that makes it look very premium.
The cabin of all the Phantom VIII is one of the most silent cabins in the world. Rolls Royce has used 130 kg of soundproofing material and insulation to ensure that no noise enters the cabin. Also, all the glasses used in the Phantom VIII are 6mm double-layered with sound-proofed glazing.
This massive Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII EWB is powered by a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces a maximum power of 563 Bhp and peak torque of 900 Nm. The engine’s torque output maximizes at a low speed of 1,700 rpm only, which means that the engine noise remains at minimal. It gets an 8-speed satellite-connected automatic transmission system that can predict the gear changes according to the upcoming turn. Being massively heavy, it can do 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds only!
