Current Rolls-Royce Phantom to end production in 2016

By CARSIFU | 23 February 2016

LONDON: The Rolls-Royce Phantom will end production this year.

The announcement by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes follows the recent news that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has begun testing its all-new aluminium architecture, which will underpin every future Rolls-Royce arriving in-market from early 2018.

He also announced that Phantom Coupé and Drophead Coupé models would also reach their end of life, going out with a special collection of 50 cars to be called Phantom Zenith.

The current seventh-generation of Phantom started production in Goodwood over 13 years ago and became the base for the resurgence of the car maker, owned by BMW.

During November this year, the build of the last Phantom Coupé and Drophead Coupé at Goodwood will be completed along with the last Phantom VII limousines.
