Ever thought the Rolls-Royce Phantom was a bit… subtle?
Not to worry, German tuners SPOFEC have fixed that for you
Hang on. Before we do anything else here – just look at the size of those wheels. Those are 24-inch jobs that German tuner SPOFEC has created in partnership with Vossen, and they apparently come in 72 different colours. Twenty-four! Seventy-two!
Now we’ve got that out of the way, we can look at the car they’re attached to. It’s a hard one to miss too – this is a Rolls-Royce Phantom that has been worked over by the aforementioned SPOFEC.
There’s a full body kit, of course, with a new front bumper that apparently reduces front-end lift at high speeds. There are also side skirts that, combined with a 40mm drop to the air suspension, make the Phantom sit extremely low. Definitely no need to worry about speed bumps or an errant crisp packet on the road.
Thankfully, SPOFEC hasn’t touched that fantastic interior, but they have been playing with the 6.75-litre V12 under the bonnet. An ECU remap means power now stands at – wait for it – 676bhp and 744lb ft of torque. Crikey.
Zero to 62mph can apparently be dispatched in five seconds flat, but top speed is still limited to 155mph. Come on then all you Phantom-owning TopGear.com readers – tell us in the comments below if you’d ever go for the SPOFEC look…
