Rolls-Royce Phantom By SPOFEC

It sprints to 62 mph in 5 seconds flat.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom has a presence few can replicate. The bespoke brand designs impeccable automotive machines with the finest materials and quality. Preserving that presence while putting one’s own spin on the luxury saloon is difficult; however, SPOFEC has the skills, which is on display with their latest tuned Phantom.  

SPOFEC’s upgrades are subtle and don’t distract from the Rolls’ already clean design. The company added its own functional bumper that reduces front-end lift at high speeds and revised the front fascia. Along the sides are unique rocker panels while the front wing badge is highlighted on the vehicle. Moving to the rear, SPOFEC installed a new fascia along with a subtle spoiler.

Rolls is all about that luxury:

The large, 24-inch wheels, developed in cooperation with Vossen, help fill the wheel well. The nine pairs of twin spokes and the larger centre cap that conceals the lugs help make the wheel appear looming. The wheels are available in 72 colours in two finishes – polished and brushed. The air suspension can lower the saloon's ride by about 40 millimetres.  

Powering the Phantom is Rolls’ iconic 6.75-litre V12. A tune increases the Phantom’s output by 114 bhp and 81 pound-feet of torque. The SPOFEC-tuned Phantom now makes 685 bhp and 744 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with the stock eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The updated mill can help propel the Phantom from zero to 62 miles per hour in 5 seconds flat. The extended wheelbase Phantom model completes the run in 5.1 seconds. The top speed is still electronically limited to 155 mph.  

SPOFEC’s Rolls-Royce Phantom is a masterclass in subtlety. The updated styling, new rocker panels, and upsized wheels enhance the Phantom’s presence, not detract from it. The Rolls-Royce is a gorgeous luxury sedan. SPOFEC’s goodies are like gold icing on an already expensive cake.
