Two prototypes of the next generation Rolls-Royce Phantom II were spied, including a long-wheelbase variant.
The test mules have been heavily disguised, but we can see what looks to be a slightly longer body, as well as a new front bumper design featuring wider air vents that extend further out towards the car’s sides.
The Spirit of Ecstasy is also missing, although this is likely due to the fact this is a test mule.
At the rear, the bumper seems to protrude less than the predecessor, with a more flush design from the boot lid to the rear bumper. There are also more rounded lights, but we suspect these are temporary units rather than anything final.
No official technical details have been revealed, but insiders expect the new car to feature one of two possible engines: a more powerful version of the current Phantom’s 6.75-litre V12 unit, or a boosted version of the 6.6-litre V12 unit featured in the new Dawn.
The Phantom II is still in early stages of testing and so isn’t expected for release until early 2018.
