Adar Poonawalla Buys Second Rolls Royce Phantom VIII This Year


The Poonawalla family, who control Serum Institute of India (SII), which manufactures COVID-19 vaccines for India and many other countries, already travel in the most luxurious vehicles available. Adar Poonawalla, the company’s CEO, added the Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII to his collection earlier this year. The Phantom VIII’s extended wheelbase is now available as well.

The new car, which CS12 Vlogs saw on the streets of Mumbai, has a VIP registration number. It has a stunning two-tone paint job. The huge Phantom VIII EWB (extended wheelbase) clearly commands the highways, and no other vehicle in the photo can match its magnificence.

Rolls Royce Phantom VIII EWB

The Phantom Series VIII Extended Wheel Base is a Rolls Royce model (EWB). The vehicle’s on-road pricing in Mumbai is Rs 13.5 crore. However, this is the pricing without any customization options, and we all know how custom Rolls Royce items are.

We may fairly presume that this is now the most costly vehicle in the Poonawalla garage. The new aluminium spaceframe platform, dubbed ‘Architecture of Luxury’ by Rolls Royce, is used in this latest-generation Rolls Royce Phantom. When compared to its predecessor, it is 30 percent lighter. It is one of the largest Rolls Royces ever made, but it is 77mm shorter, 8mm taller, and 29 mm broader than its predecessor.

Powering the massive Rolls Royce Series VIII EWB is a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces a maximum power of 563 Bhp and 900 Nm. The torque peaks at 1,700 rpm and it transfers the power to the wheels through an 8-speed satellite attached transmission system. The vehicle can do 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII gets a larger 24-slat chrome grille, new LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs and LED tail lamps. The design inspiration comes from the yacht and it gets a dual-tone shade that makes it look like a grand vehicle. The Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII gets 130 kg of sound insulation that makes it one of the most silent vehicles in the world. Further, there are 6mm double-layered sound-proof glazing on each window.

Second Phantom to arrive this year

The basic model was delivered to Poonawalla earlier this year. Even the ordinary variant is priced at nearly Rs 10 crore before taxes. The total cost is estimated to be around Rs 12 crore. It is 8mm taller and 29mm wider than the previous model, but the overall length has been reduced by 77mm to make it more manoeuvrable on the road and easier to turn.

The Phantom VIII’s cabin is one of the quietest cabins on the planet. To ensure that no noise reaches the cabin, Rolls Royce used 130 kg of soundproofing material and insulation. In addition, all of the Phantom VIII’s optics are 6mm double-layered with sound-proofed glazing.
