The return of the Rolls Royce Phantom
The all-new Rolls Royce Phantom is about to be introduced at “The Great Eight Phantoms” exhibition, opening 27th July in Mayfair, London. The BMW Group want to showcase all seven Phantoms, highlighting not only the advancements throughout the years, but to promote their rich history.
Regarded as the ‘best car in the world’, the BMW Group want to bring the Rolls-Royce back to the forefront and show the world why the Rolls-Royce is still the most luxurious car brand around; just like the Phantoms were in the classic era.
Known as the car “to get you to and back from the Opera House” back in the day, Fred Astaire’s Phantom 1 will kick off the show for the multi-generational lineup, which will be brought down from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
Fred’s massive limousine was twice outfitted with bespoke coachwork throughout Astaire’s ownership. Inskip last upgraded the interior, adding beautiful scalloped woodwork. If you’re lucky enough to attend the show, you will be able to see for yourself.
As an added incentive, previous Phantoms owned By John Lennon, Bernard Montgomery and Aha Khan will also be included in the summer showcase.
