Under the hood is a brand-new 6.75-liter V-12 engine with two turbochargers. The engine produces 563 hp, up from 453 hp produced by the aspirated V-12 on the previous Phantom. The car has the 664 lb-ft of torque, instead of 531 lb-ft on the old model. Power is routed through ZF eight-speed automatic gears on 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII. The premium vehicle takes 5.3 seconds in the short-wheelbase version and 5.4 seconds in the longer model in accelerating to 62 mph from a standstill mode, Jalopnik reported.

2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII includes the upcoming Project Cullinan "high-sided, all-terrain motor car" as well as the next Ghost, Wraith, Dawn, and future coachbuilder projects. The company claims that the all-aluminum space frame architecture of the car is about 30 percent more rigid than the Phantom's old platform, and it can accommodate different types of force. The new architecture helps keep weight down and improve comfort while riding, as noted by Motor Trend.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII is bristling with driver-aid equipment like night vision, active cruise control, and a four-camera 360-degree parking assistant, long-range sensors. All these features are designed to maximize the benefits of technology and give an awesome driving experience.

With an even nicer interior and more powerful engine befitting its large size, the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII achieves a more modern feel than the seventh generation that made its debut back in 2003. But the goal is still the same: to offer the smoothest, most accommodating means of conveyance in the world.
