Rolls-Royce unveils 'the most silent car ever'

Rolls-Royce unveils

The all new 'Phantom' by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars was unveiled on 27th July 2017. From the moment Sir Henry Royce introduced the Rolls-Royce Phantom in 1925 it was judged 'The Best Car in the World' by the cognoscenti.

The new luxury car is a creation of great beauty and power. It is a dominant symbol of wealth and human achievement. It is an icon and an artwork that is built to embrace the personal desires of it's customers.

What is the Architecture of Luxury?

The Rolls-Royce engineers have built an Architecture of Luxury which is an all-aluminium space frame architecture designed to underpin every future Rolls-Royce beginning with the New Phantom.

The car has been designed and engineered from the ground up in such a way so as to be scalable to the size and weight requirements of different future Rolls-Royce models, including those with different propulsion, traction and control systems, thus underpinning the long-term future product roadmap.

Immense effort was also put in to create 'the most silent motor car in the world' which included 6mm two-layer glazing all around the car, more than 130kg of sound insulation, the largest ever cast aluminium joints in a body-in-white for better sound insulation, and use of high absorption materials.

With the focus on creating the most silent motor car in the world, a completely silent engine was also required. Hence a completely new, 6.75-litre V12 powertrain has been engineered for New Phantom, in place of the previous naturally aspirated V12 engine.

Whilst the majority of so-called luxury manufacturers are limited to sharing individual platforms in a specific sector with mass brands for saying their SUV or GT offerings, thereby introducing unacceptable compromise, Rolls-Royce is uncompromising and only uses its own architecture across all its motor cars, whatever the sector.
