The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a stunning sales success, but the company hasn’t forgotten about their Rolls-Royce phantom lineup as engineers are currently testing a facelifted Coupe in Europe. Nevertheless, a facelift is scheduled for the top-selling Rolls-Royce Phantom, bringing the car, which comes in sedan, coupe and convertible flavors, some fresh new styling for the 2013 model year.
The test mule reveals a new set of heavily camouflaged headlights as well as a revised LED daytime running lights setup. Aside from the headlight details, it’s difficult to tell what else will be changed. Expect a series of small changes at least; perhaps also increased options for those that want to customise their Rolls-Royce phantom. Not much else is known about the car though expect some updates to the interior and powertrain to go along with the new styling.
Under the hood Rolls-Royce phantom, the 6.75-liter V12 engine could offer improved performance and increased efficiency. It currently produces 453 bhp (338 kW / 460 PS) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque, but there’s no word on what the output may be bumped up too. The decal treatment makes it difficult to see exactly what Rolls-Royce has planned for the Phantom, but we’d wager the changes will remain mild.
