Rolls-Royce Updates the Phantom Saloon for 2009

The Rolls-Royce has released their 2009 model Phantom with a few interesting features.

On the outside, the revised Phantom gets a new bumper with a shallower stainless steel grille like those on its two-door compatriots.

Rolls has also added such luxury touches as LED lights in the door handles and three new sets of aluminum wheels for customers to choose from.

Inside, rear passengers will benefit from a new RCA component input which provides auxiliary audio and visual connectivity to the 12-inch monitors mounted within the picnic tables.

Further features include new front and rear door cappings with integrated grab handles and new bi-directional double reading lights in the C-pillar provide additional illumination.

Rear climate control, volume control and electric window switches are now conveniently repositioned, housed in a wood veneer panel in the door.

Nothing revolutionary here, as Rolls-Royce has wisely chosen not to mess too much with perfection.

The 2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom is 6,749 cc, 6.7 liters, V 12 front engine road wonder costs between $350,000 and $423,000. Production will commence at Goodwood in the spring.
