It featured the newly developed V8 engine and the four speed automatic gearbox based on the General Motors Hydramantic design. A special limousine Rolls-Royce, “Phantom”, offered its clients a long wheelbase version of the high class Marque, reserved for the ultra wealthy and dignitaries. The basic chassis followed the Silver Cloud’s layout, but for the Phantom was lengthened and strengthened considerably by massive reinforcements and front and rear track were of greater dimensions.
