We didn't know it needed improvement, but whatever!
Aftermarket tuners turn their sights to a variety of vehicles but seldom do we see highly-customized cars from Rolls-Royce. The people who build Rolls-Royce cars would likely tell you that's because there is no room for improvement but this hasn't stopped a few ambitious tuners from trying to make them better. We recently saw Mansory go wild on the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Spofec, a division of German tuner Novitec Group, put a widebody kit on a Dawn.
Spofec is back and this time, the German tuner has "refined" a Rolls-Royce Phantom with some help from American company Vossen. The car now features tailor-made carbon-fiber bodywork and plenty of changes under the skin.
The Phantom's transformation begins with custom-tailored 24-inch alloy SP2 wheels, co-developed by Spofec and Vossen. These SP2 wheels feature nine pairs of twin spokes and large center covers to conceal the wheel bolts. Spofec says the wheels can be finished in 72 different colors with a brushed or polished surface and come mounted with tires sized 295/30 R 24.
Spofec has also applied its own custom bodywork, which was specifically designed to match the Phantom's luxury lines and aerodynamic efficiency. A new front fascia completely replaces the production bumper, giving the Phantom a striking face while also reducing front-axle lift at high speeds. At the back, a new rear fascia gives a sleeker, more athletic stance and even features a subtle lip spoiler.
The Phantom already features an adaptive air suspension but Spofec has developed a new special control module, which lowers the car by 40 millimeters at speeds of under 87 mph. Powering the Phantom up to these speeds is a 6.75-liter V12 engine which has been tuned by Spofec. It now produces 685 horsepower and 745 lb-ft of torque - increases of 114 hp and 81 lb-ft respectively. Spofec says this power increase gets the Phantom up to 60 mph in just 5.0 seconds (5.1 for the extended wheelbase model) while the top speed is limited to 155 mph.
