Kim Jong-Un’s new Rolls-Royce Phantom defies UN sanctions against North Korea

Kim Jong-Un, the “Supreme Leader” of North Korea, had been seen rolling off in custom-built Pullman Guard Mercedes limousines when attending special events and exclusive occasions. But just recently, Kim pulled off quite a surprise after he was seen disembarking from a new Rolls-Royce Phantom.

It turned out that Kim has been an aficionado for cars and planes ever since he was a child. This was made demonstrated well when the North Korean leader went to a meeting with United States president Donald Trump in Singapore in June this year. At the time, Kim took a peek at Trump’s Cadillac One presidential limousine dubbed as “The Beast.” This highly customized Cadillac is a nine-ton bulletproof and bombproof that features an emergency oxygen supply, steel wheels and an armor-plated fuel tank. A new version of The Beast has just been unveiled by Cadillac.

On other hand, Kim had been riding on Pullman Guard Mercedes limousines that are derived from the 2012 Mercedes-Benz S600. These limousines were used to transport North Korea’s Supreme Leader around Pyongyang and the truce village of Panmunjom. These Pullman Guard Mercedes limousines were also used in Kim’s travels abroad.

An electrified Rolls-Royce Phantom is probable due to rising demand in China

It is inevitable that there will soon be a fully electric Rolls-Royce vehicle. But it seems that a Rolls-Royce with an electric powertrain will arrive earlier than everyone thinks. We heard that the automaker anticipates releasing the first one within several years. It’s also likely that it will be launched first in China as this is where most of the demand for this type of vehicle comes from.

Head of electric powertrains for the BMW Group, Stefan Juraschek, mentioned to Automotive News that they are looking into electrifying. He also said that to penetrate the Chinese market, automakers will have to think of electrifying different models.

Having said all that, Juraschek also stated that there has not been a final decision made for this yet, and it simply is just an idea. However, other executives have given more concrete statements about the model’s chances. If you recall, CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos said last year that “electrification is the way forward.”

First-ever 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom will go under the hammer at Naples Festival

The very first of the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom has just rolled off the production line. And guess what? It will be put on auction at the 2018 Naples Winter Wine Festival. The example looks quite similar to the Phantom that we saw at the HR Owen showroom in London in terms of the colour scheme, but it looks much cooler.

The wine event will take place next month from January 26 to 28 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida. And all proceeds that will be earned from the festival will go to the Naples Children & Education Foundation.

The first example of the Phantom sits on a standard wheelbase, it is painted in a Belladonna Purple hue that contrasts with the Arctic White and Tailored Purple Bespoke interior. The model that will go on sale is what is referred to as the Phantom Ultimate Power Lot. To add to that, it gets the opportunity to be part of the 2019 ROBB Report Car of the Year. It will be sold together with the collection of wines from Alpha Omega, a winery in Napa valley. The organisers behind this event describes it as the ultimate experience for the luxury motoring and wine lover.

Rolls-Royce lets you customize your uber-luxurious 2018 Phantom with an online configurator

The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom was developed by the company for customers who want to have an ultra-luxurious, and ultra-unique car that perfectly matches their personality. With that being said, they have just launched an online configuration especially made for the Phantom.

This site lets customers design their Rolls-Royce exactly how they want it, making it truly their own personal 2018 Phantom. The company always says that you don’t purchase a Rolls Royce, but you commission one instead. Just like a tailor-made suit with your specific measurements, you can now get a car that suits your taste. That way, there won’t be any detail about the car that you won’t like.

The eight-generation Phantom will be riding on an all-aluminum platform, the same as the Cullinan SUV. It will be equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission that is paired with the all-new twin-turbo 6.75 liter V12 with 563 horsepower and 663 pound-feet (900 Nm) of torque. This Phantom is actually ten percent quieter than the previous model when it starts to accelerate.

The mere thought of a Rolls-Royce wagon is quite silly. But hey, it didn’t take us long before we realized that it isn’t that hideous after seeing X-Tomi Design’s latest spinoff.

The artist derived its digital rendition from the eighth generation Phantom following the limousine’s official launch in London. Rolls-Royce did come up with wagons way back when there were no SUVs yet. Do you remember the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud from 1959 that the coachbuilder converted into a wagon? There used to be four of them. As a matter of fact, the British automaker did those conversions together with H.J Mulliner and so the idea of a Rolls-Royce wagon isn’t totally new.

“Project Cullinan” instead is now in the works and will be the first sports utility vehicle to be offered officially by the luxury carmaker. Strangely, while Rolls-Royce’s SUV prototype was being developed, several spy shots have actually revealed some close resemblances to the all-new Phantom. It only seems logical since the dimensions of the current Phantom is virtually the same as a truck. The difference is that the SUV gets to sit on a taller platform.

Rolls-Royce has been around for decades now, and we have seen the Rolls-Royce Phantom for eight generations in the span of around 100 years. Of all models, this is probably the most luxurious model, beating all other luxury cars in the market. And that’s saying a lot.

The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom can be customized to boast the utmost luxury ranging from veneers and leathers of the richest shades, to porcelain and gold-plated elements that you can put in your Phantom - basically the best of the best.

But before all that, it has to be equally presentable on the outside. The 2018 Phantom is looking very elegant and superior in its metal exterior, which can be had in a solid or a two-tone design. It has got flowing lines, a nice rear, and it sits on massive wheels.

The new 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII is on the way, but still, all we had been seeing are camouflaged prototypes of the eight generation of this iconic nameplate. Fortunately though, images of the supposed Phantom VIII – sans the camouflaged – suddenly appeared, giving people a more vivid idea on how the eight generation would actually look like.

Earlier this year, the very last of the Rolls-Royce Phantom VII left the carmaker’s manufacturing base in West Sussex, England. While it signaled the end of the seventh generation of the Phantom, it also indicated a new generation – the eighth one – is on the way. Given the definite success of the already iconic Phantom VII, fans and enthusiasts are really looking forward to the next generation.

Introduced in 2003, the Rolls-Royce Phantom VII has been a definition of utmost luxury for 13 years. Given the fact that this Rolls-Royce model doesn’t really need to undergo major tweaks in design and style as it jumps to a new generation, the upcoming Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII is expected to look similar to its predecessor. Of course, there would be a number of changes, but that would come in the form of innovations and technologies, instead of design.

This is because the only remaining it is the newest and the last Phantom VII Drophead Coupe to roll off from the carmaker’s production line, as confirmed by a certification from the Rolls-Royce factory.

Rolls-Royce introduced its Phantom family as early as 2003. The first to be launched was the sedan in 2003, and it was followed by the convertible four years later in 2007. Then in 2008, Rolls-Royce introduced the coupe version of the Phantom VII. Now, a decade since the open-top Phantom VII was born, the “Last of Lastedition -- the sole remaining example of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe -- is now up for sale by at the Seven Car Lounge in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. According to the listing, this Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe is a fresh output of the carmaker’s Goodwood assembly facility, which is in now being retooled to prepare for the production of the model’s future successor.

As a proof that this Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe – with Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of 12345 -- is still fresh from the factory, the “Last of Last” edition has zero miles traveled since it was rolled off from the production line. Its core is served by a powerful 6.5-liter 12-cylinder V12 petrol engine, which delivers 460 PS of max output and 720 Nm of peak torque. This high level of power is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. The powertrain is accommodated in body frame that is made from pure aluminum components. By using such material and construction, Rolls-Royce was able to make the casing as light as possible while making it stiff and strong.

Luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce Motor Cars recently announced that 2016 will be the last production year for the company’s highly-successful Phantom models. The announcement was made by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes and comes after news that Rolls-Royce has started testing an all-new aluminum architecture, which will be utilized by newer cars slated to be available by 2018.

In the same announcement, Mueller-Oetvoes added that the Phantom Coupe and Drophead Coupe models will no longer be produced in the future. A special collection run consisting of a limited 50 cars will be produced to mark the end of production for these highly desirable models which will be aptly-named the Phantom Zenith.

The seventh generation Phantom started a renaissance for Roll-Royce Motor Cars having entered into production 13 years ago in Goodwood. It defined what a super luxury car should be and reinforced the marque’s claim in this category with its subdued power, grace and unrivaled magnificence.

It is back, the one-off custom-built car based from the Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe is back on the market with an asking price of EUR1.45 million (US $1.6 million), courtesy of Al-Ain Class Motors in Dubai.

The new tag was nearly half the asking price for the Pininfarina Hyperion Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe three years ago at EUR2.93 million. The one-off was named after one of the Titans of Greek mythology – Hyperion – to underscore both its aesthetic and figurative power.

The origin of this one-off is traced to Roland Hall -- a collector and an owner of a Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe – who asked the Pininfarina Special Projects Division to create a custom-built car that would somewhat evoke the charm and appeal of the spectacular cars of the 1930s.

The custom Rolls-Royce Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupé was designed especially for the Dubai market. This exclusive vehicle revealed at the AGMC Rolls-Royce showroom is a one-of-a-kind model and draws its inspiration from the bygone era of the Raja and in particular the glorious golden age of India.

Looking into the past, the designers examined how over a hundred years ago Indian royalty developed a unique relationship with Rolls-Royce, one which saw an unprecedented number of bespoke vehicles created. Each of which was designed to test what was possible in a Rolls-Royce and led to a partnership which saw over 800 hand-crafted vehicles from the heart of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England delivered to India.

This was a development which earned the company the 'Best Car in the World' award and its designers created an unheard of number of modifications to the style, comfort and performance of its vehicles.
