Rolls-Royce Phantom 7 Series II Sedan (2012-2016)
Rolls-Royce Phantom 7 Series II is the facelifted version of the Phantom 7 full-size luxury sedan in production from 2012 to 2016. It was powered by the same BMW N73 V12 engines that displaced 6.75 liters (N73B68).
To a large extent, the Phase II was just a cosmetic change from the hugely successful pre-facelift model. The only notable update was the change from the 6-speed ZF 6HP32 to the new 8-speed ZF 8HP70 automatic transmission. This allowed BMW to lower the fuel consumption to 14.8L/100km (15.9mpg), which hardly mattered to the owners.
Indeed, the Phantom 7 design was so successful that even the first cars to have come out the production line still looks phenomenal today.
The only negative is the large 13.8m (45.3ft) turning circle, but the owner surely has a chauffeur to deal with these insignificant issues.
