Report: Rolls-Royce beginning work on next-generation Phantom, due in 2017

Research and development for the next-generation Phantom has reportedly begun, according to AutoCar. Due sometime in 2017, the new Phantom will continue the legacy of the English ultra-luxurious leviathan.

After speaking with the automaker’s head of design, the new Phantom will apparently take on more “charismatic expressiveness,” which comes to no surprise, given the Rolls-Royce stands out like a sore thumb, but for proper reason.

Additionally, word is that Rolls will take away from some of the lessons learned from their parent company, BMW, and their i family of cars, mainly the ones relating to saving weight. That said, you can most likely expect the extensive use of aluminum and carbon fiber to help reduce weight. That said, this will open up the opportunity for possible hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants.
