Mansory | Rolls Royce Phantom VIII

The Rolls-Royce Phantom is no stranger to German tuner Mansory, but the luxury flagship's redesign from the previous year led them to release a new model. A bright bodykit with forged carbon highlights and a new set of 24-inch alloy wheels are added to the Rolls-Royce Phantom Pulse Edition, further enhancing its reputation for turning heads.

Few people will be able to tell the Pulse Edition apart from its predecessor, although it benefits from the new LED headlights and slightly modified grille of the facelifted Phantom. The wider intakes, more DRLs, and prominent front splitter of the bespoke bodykit seem to be untouched. The decklid spoiler, side skirts, side gills, rear diffuser, which houses the outlets of the sports exhaust system, and the forged carbon bonnet are all finished in black. Due in part to the lowered air suspension, the 24 inch diameter black FD.15 fully forged wheels entirely cover the wheel arches.

This specific example's interior is branded with white leather upholstery and pillowy headrests that have embossed Mansory branding. Strong contrast is produced by the piano black accents on the console, the black floor and trunk mats, and the exposed forged carbon finish on the side sills.

Mansory produced an alternate specification of the Pulse Edition for customers who like a more covert appearance and eye-catching inside. This one has a Black Diamond paint job, matching wheels, embellishments that are blacked out, and understated light blue elements, such the tiny stripes on the profile. On the other hand, the inside is completely covered in light blue upholstery with contrasting orange accents, which makes for an interesting color scheme.

From the factory, the twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 engine of the Rolls-Royce develops 563 horsepower (420 kW / 571 PS) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, which is more than enough to move its considerable bulk quickly. If the owner desires more passing power, Mansory may enhance those numbers to 602 horsepower (449 kW/610 PS) and 950 Nm (700 lb-ft). Even the technician who will operate on the customized Phantom will be fascinated by the engine, which also receives a carbon fiber cover.

The tuner withheld the cost of the two Rolls-Royce Phantom Pulse Edition cars, but based on comparable builds in the past, they ought to be close to $1 million apiece.
