If you have ever wondered how an Oligarch travels, Top Gear has answered the question. First you need the latest in luxury, the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The eighth generation of their flagship is the first Phantom to be designed with help from BMW. It is also the first Phantom to have an aluminum spaceframe.
This allows the car to be stronger and more composed than the unibody chassis of the Phantom 7. Having a spaceframe allows engineers to tune out any naughty harmonics or vibrations that plague cars of this size. It is the first Rolls-Royce with active sway bars and active shocks. The car scans the road ahead to look for changes in the pavement, and the shocks are instantly prepared to hold the body steady. This means you won’t spill your champagne flutes that are stored between the rear seats.
Other features Rolls-Royce introduced are 4 wheel steering and Silent-Seal tires. Developed in cooperation with Continental, they are filled with sound-absorbing foam that cancels out road noise. We could go on in more detail, but we’ll save it for another day. Allow the cheeky Brits at Top Gear to show you how it all adds up to an amazing experience.
