The last Rolls-Royce Phantom VII

The very last seventh generation Phantom has rolled off the production line. The last limo of its kind is a one-off special to mark the end of an era.

The last Phantom VII sits on an extended-wheelbase and was commissioned by an unnamed Rolls-Royce connoisseur collector. The car itself is unique and has been given all the bells and whistles as it is the last of its kind. The next generation of Phantom will most likely feature more modern chassis structure and bodywork.

The Phantom has been styled in a nautical theme simulating a 1930s ocean liner. The interior is finished in pale ’Velvet Blue’ leather and the beautiful bespoke woodwork features engraving of the sea and 1930s cruise ship in an elaborated art deco style. The dashboard, dials and clocks have been redesigned in a nautical theme mimicking a ships instruments.

The final phantom runs on the same naturally aspirated 6.75-litre V12 engine, producing 454hp and 531lb ft or torque. The limo accelerated from 0-62mph in 6 seconds and tops out at 149mph.

The Phantom mark VIII will likely debut next year and will feature aluminium architecture.
