The Magic Car­pet Ride

India Today - - SPICE -

In the first half of the 20th cen­tury, Sir Henry Royce fa­mously urged his em­ploy­ees to strive for per­fec­tion in all that they did and to make the best that ex­ists even bet­ter. In this spirit the Phantom Se­ries II was un­veiled at the 2012 Geneva Mo­tor Show on 6th March, 2012. The Phantom’s strik­ing new front-end, with re-styled bumpers and rect­an­gu­lar light aper­tures, en­cap­su­lates the essence of the sig­nif­i­cant changes that lie be­neath. Rolls Royce is the first to in­clude fully-led head­lamps as stan­dard on a pro­duc­tion car, de­liv­er­ing a whiter light, aug­ment­ing safety and pre­vent­ing driver fa­tigue. Curve light func­tion­al­ity uses elec­tron­i­cally-con­trolled re­flec­tors to fo­cus head­lamp beams in the di­rec­tion of travel, pro­vid­ing greater il­lu­mi­na­tion of the road ahead when turn­ing cor­ners. Driv­ers and pas­sen­gers will feel im­prove­ments in a drive-train con­sid­ered close to per­fec­tion by the Rolls-royce en­gi­neer­ing team. Fuel con­sump­tion im­proves by 10 per­cent on the com­bined cy­cle and CO2 emis­sions fall from 388 to 347 g/km. Ev­ery part of the Phantom ex­pe­ri­ence should be ef­fort­less, so new driver as­sis­tance tech­nolo­gies and a mod­ern user in­ter­face with re-de­signed multi-me­dia con­troller have been in­tro­duced. Mov­ing with the times Rolls Royce re­in­forces its rep­u­ta­tion as a brand that con­tin­ues to of­fer its cus­tomers cut­ting-edge in­no­va­tions and of course, one of the world’s smoothest rides.
