All versions have received a cosmetic upgrade of the front-end, with full LED head-lights and new bumpers, while the classic round-shaped lights are gone, quite possibly for good.
The passenger compartment remains more or less the same of the previous version, with the only exception of the multi-edia info-tainment system which gets - among the other things - a brand new sat-nav system that displays the maps in 3D. On the dashboard there’s a new 8.8″ screen integrated with 8 control buttons.
As for the mechanical side, the new Phantom Series II range now uses a 8-speed automatic transmission courtesy of German specialist ZF as well as a new, more efficient limited slip differential at the back that improves fuel consumption by a remarkable 10% as well as reducing the model’s carbon footprint. The engine itself - a 6.7-litre V12 credited with an output of 460 hp and 720 Nm of peak torque - has been left untouched.
