Rolls-Royce models are luxurious cars which are dreams of many automotive enthusiasts. In 2007, the carmaker has introduced a 2-door convertible, Phantom Drophead based on Phantom VII. After selling for almost 9 years, the company stopped the model. It has been an awesome 2-door version of the company.
The customization options and over 40,000 shades were the main attraction at those times. The carmaker didn’t saw much attention for the model when companies like Bentley Motors, Aston Martin and Mercedes-Maybach, started producing some fantastic versions. However, the company is still on the race with its 2017 Rolls-Royce Sweptail, which is not affordable by everyone.
New reports have surfaced online which reveals a modified Premier 118NE into Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead. The car is inspired by the former Fiat 124. Premier 118NE is a famous traditional car. Indian auto fans have many memories related to this model. It was immensely popular back in those times. As we all know, Rolls Royce cars are costly, but Indians can do anything with their extraordinary minds.
Earlier, we have noticed many customized cars in India, but this customized Phantom Drophead is just awesome. A video was uploaded on Youtube (Teju Bhai) where a Rajashtan based garage workers customized Premier 118NE based Rolls Royce into a beautiful Drophead. We cannot say that the car looks almost like the Rolls Royce model, but there are few elements which grabbed our attention.
The small car Premier 118 NE now looks longer compared to the original version. At the front, they adopted the company’s traditional grille highlighted with their PAL (Premier Automobiles Limited) badge. There are no more changes made to the front. Even the headlights don’t look exactly like the Rolls Royce model, but there are few similar bits.
Moving on to the side section, the car is installed with suicide doors and multi-spoke alloy wheels instead of the steel wheels. At the rear, it has received a standard design flaunted with a tail light set up based on the previous version Skoda Superb sedan. The cabin has also got few tweaks in terms of new steering, a modified dashboard, and comfortably elegant seats.
The underpinnings remain the same, powered by a 1.2 litre- 4 cylinder naturally aspirated engine. The engineers have done a good job with their Premier 118 NE. The cabin has got a beige scheme which is not a good idea for driving in Rajhastan roads. There is no further information on the customized car.
