The long-wheelbase VII has been produced for a connoisseur collector of Rolls-Royces.

At 6,092mm, the Rolls-Royce VII is about 250mm longer than the ‘standard’ Phantom. It also has a long list of features that are similar to the interior of a grand ocean liner. The dashboard features a design of a '30s cruise ship and clocks. Each clock is housed in a grooved bezel featuring 24 time zones. Passengers are allowed to rotate it as per the time zones they will be in.

The interiors are extravagantly luxurious featuring lamp-wool carpets with a hand-cut wake effect. Its exterior colour, velvet blue, is to reflect the colour of the ocean. Adding contrast are pinstripe tyres and a 'Spirit of Ecstasy' made from solid silver.

Powered by Rolls-Royce’s 6.75-litre naturally aspirated V12 that churns out 460hp and 720Nm of torque. Acceleration is as per usual Extended Wheelbase standards which means the Phantom VII will accelerate from 0 - 100kph in approximately 6.1sec and go on to a top speed of 240kph.

Rolls-Royce hasn't revealed the final cost of this car but the standard Extended Wheelbase models start at £373,824 (approximately Rs 3.67 crore), and custom cars often exceed that number and even edge into seven-figure territories.

As this was the final Phantom VII, work will now commence on the Phantom VIII. The upcoming model is expected to arrive next year and will feature an all-new aluminium architecture.
