The Rolls-Royce Phantom 2020 is not just a symbol of ultimate status, it is the Holy Grail of handmade luxury cars. Its imposing design and decadent furnishings stem from decades of opulent motor car construction for the world’s richest customers. It uses a modern aluminum frame that is mounted on an air suspension for euphoric comfort. The Phantom has few real rivals, as even the Mercedes-Maybach S650 and Bentley Mulsanne don’t offer the same levels of sybaritic luxury, and the Mercedes has a price tag that’s $ 250,000 less. What a proletarian. Do you want to show the world that you have arrived? You need a ghost.
The Rolls-Royce flagship sedan receives three trims for 2020: a brushed metal fuel filler cap, an optional new custom dash clock, and the custom embroidery option on the door panel.

Interior, Comfort and Cargo
An interior tailored for kings can be adorned with a custom art board. Acres of wood, royal metallic accents, and vast stretches of supple leather cover nearly every square inch of the cabin. Rolls-Royce offers a standard and long wheelbase version of the Phantom, the latter being 8.6 inches longer, much of which results in additional rear seat legroom. The coach’s rear doors open to allow elegant entry and exit to the rear seat, where passengers can be treated with a variety of luxuries, such as deep-pile carpeted floor mats, adjustable massage seats, a refrigerated console compartment and remote controls for the car’s infotainment system.
Infotainment and connectivity
Speaking of infotainment, the Phantom comes standard with a large, infotainment display artistically hidden behind a large glass panel that runs the full width of the car’s dashboard. It is controlled by a rotary knob on the center console. So as not to think that rear-seat passengers are left out of the tech game, the Phantom also features touchscreens that scale down from each of the front seatbacks to provide access to the car’s audio and navigation systems, and even They offer a live TV tuner so passengers are not left behind on their favorite shows while on the go.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
Prodigious power is provided by a 563-hp dual-turbo V-12 paired with an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive. Acceleration is fast, but Rolls-Royce’s 5.1 second zero-to-60 mph time is nothing to appreciate your driver trying to replicate; the Phantom is best suited for fluttering along with smooth, stable throttle and steering inputs. To say the ride is smooth would be an understatement: The Rolls-Royce Phantom 2020 practically levitates on the road; It features a bumpy spotting camera that helps the suspension adapt to road imperfections in real time.
Fuel economy and real-world MPG
To match the visible consumption of a Phantom owner, the car has a great inclination for fuel consumption. EPA estimates for fuel economy are down to 12 city mpg; although the Phantom’s 20 mpg highway rating actually improves the smaller Rolls-Royce Ghost by 2 mpg. If we’re ever lucky enough to get a chance to put the Phantom through our 200-mile road fuel economy test, we’ll update this story with test results.
