2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II Gets New Wheels and an Updated Grille

For 2023, Rolls-Royce has improved its Phantom Series II. The iconic eighth-generation model has received a subtle makeover after five years on the market.


While the luxury car’s mechanics remain unchanged, the Phantom now has more modern headlights and an updated Pantheon grille with a silver line running across the top of its strakes. The grille is also illuminated, lending the car a commanding appearance.

The winged Spirit of Ecstasy mascot has been made more visible on the hood, and buyers can now choose a darker finish by adding black trim to the grille, bezel, windshield, and side glass finisher. There are also two new wheel options: one with a milled stainless steel finish and the other with a disc wheel inspired by the 1920s.


The Phantom Series II enhancements were also described by Rolls-Royce:

“Self-evidently, there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Phantom client. Spanning the ‘poles of luxury’, they may be ever-younger or older, modern or traditional, self-made or from long-established wealth. Their commissions reflect a full spectrum of interests and influences. At one extreme, Phantom takes on a subversive, almost rebellious character–youthful, dynamic and daring. At the other, Phantom transforms into an ode to luxury grandeur and timelessness.”
