Up at the front, the facelifted 2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom sports a new horizontal chrome strip sitting atop the vertical slats of the massive front grille and aligns with the LED daytime running lights of the luxury sedan.

The vertical slats are now illuminated units, which should help the plebs identify the updated Phantom. Speaking of the headlight, they now feature a laser-etched pattern quite similar to the one you see on the starlight roof lining of the sedan.

Also on offer are a new set of retro stainless steel wheels with a disc wheel design said to be inspired by the ones seen on Rolls-Royce models from the 1920s. These new disc wheels are offered in either a polished steel finish or painted with a black lacquer for a more stealthy look.

2022 Rolls-Royce Phantom - Mechanically Unchanged

Under the metal, the facelifted Rolls-Royce Phantom remains unchanged. The luxury limo continues to draw power from a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 petrol engine that produces 563bhp and 900Nm of peak torque. The six and three-quarter litre V12 engine sends power to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox from ZF. The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 5.3 seconds and tops off at an electronically limited 250km/h.
