Surely, there can be no other automobile in the world that lives up to a grand occasion as well as the Rolls-Royce Phantom VI. It embodies the best English tradition and aristocratic craftsmanship, while maintaining an air of understatement on any great occasion. Ostentatiousness and showmanship are foreign concepts to this automobile, indeed it has no need to strive for status and eminence. This Rolls-Royce is not simply an automobile, it is an institution on wheels. It is Great Britain.
50 years of Phantom VI.
The year of unrest in 1968 just happened to be the year that saw production of the Rolls-Royce Phantom VI commence. It followed the Phantom V, which had been built for almost ten years. While students were protesting and engaging in street battles with the, veteran craftsmen were stoically putting metal, leather and wood together to create a noble work of art. It was as though time had stood still. H.J. Mulliner & Co and Park Ward were formerly independent coachbuilders which Rolls-Royce had bought up and merged together. As many as 750 employees produced luxury and exclusive automobiles here.

The Phantom VI is built on a rolling chassis, as was usual before the war. Although this increased the weight, it was absolutely perfect for styling individual bodies to meet the client’s aspirations, particularly given its very long wheelbase of 3660 millimetres. There was lots of room for luxury upholstery and leg room. Naturally, the minibar was an absolute must. Occasional seats in the floor even allowed guests to come along as well.
A new Phantom VI was always built to the client’s specifications, individual preferences and aspirations were the central focus. Colour schemes, materials and leather as well as detailed solutions could be tailored to individual requirements. Delivery times from one to two years were normal. This means that no two Phantom VI automobiles are the same, and each one you come across today always tells a story about the first owner.
Service in the background – engine and drivetrain.
The Silver Shadow was also fitted with the V8 engine with 6.2 litre capacity. It generated “sufficient” power for all situations. You could not hear it anyway, either inside or outside. An automatic transmission provided smooth-running comfort. In 1978, the capacity was expanded to 6.75 litres. The Phantom VI is a classic chauffeur-driven limousine because it is primarily intended to convey prestige. Gliding along with a dignified air is probably the best description, excessive speed would be quite inappropriate.
The Phantom VI was built until 1991, just 374 motor cars came into existence. When the production run came to an end, Mulliner Park Ward closed its doors for the last time. An era came to an end, a great chapter in engineering history. Automobiles as an expression of perfect craftsmanship.
Fundamentally an updated Phantom V, the Phantom VI had a restyled dashboard and was powered by an engine derived from the current Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. Most of the coachwork was created by Mulliner Park Ward, usually in limousine form, though a few landaulettes were made.
The Phantom VI was the last Rolls-Royce with a separate chassis. It featured coil springs in front, leaf springs and live axle in rear, and drum brakes on all four wheels. The car was powered by a 6,230 cc (380 cu in) 90 degree V8 with a bore of 104 mm (4.1 in) and stroke of 91.5 mm (3.60 in) with twin SU carburettors, coupled to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. In a 1979 upgrade the engine capacity was increased to 6,750 cc (412 cu in), a 3-speed automatic gearbox with torque converter was substituted, and separate front and rear air conditioning units were provided. Inclusion of the engine from the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit in 1982 increased engine displacement once more, to 6,750 cc. In 1990 the last Rolls-Royce Phantom VI chassis were built, however as the completion of the coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward took around 18 months the last cars were made in the period of the next two years. The very last Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, a landaulette, was completed and delivered to the customer in summer of 1992.
A total of 374 Phantom VIs were made. Unlike the Phantom V, they were never sold in the United States, due to United States Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration design legislation.
Design of a Phantom VII based on the Silver Shadow's body was discussed in the 1970s, but plans were scrapped. No prototypes were built. A production Rolls-Royce Phantom VII was rolled out in 2003.
Within the fleet of cars used by Queen Elizabeth II and her family in the United Kingdom are two Rolls-Royce Phantom VIs: the Silver Jubilee Car (presented by the British motor industry to celebrate her 25th anniversary on the throne in 1977), and a more conventional 1986 model. These two cars were the official state cars until the introduction of the two Bentley State Limousines in 2002. Like all British state cars, the Phantom VIs have a special mount for a Royal Standard and coat of arms. When in use by the Queen, the Spirit of Ecstasy is replaced by a custom-made solid silver model of St George slaying the dragon and the car carries no registration plates. In Australia, the monarch, her family, and the Governor-General of Australia use a Rolls-Royce Phantom VI dating to 1970. It is typically used only rarely, such as for the state opening of parliament or the swearing-in of a new governor-general.
Replacing the original Barker Cabriolet, although we are unsure who built by, this car is fitted with an extremely appropriate and very well-executed four door Tourer, which is of 'dual cowl' configuration. This allows for the second windscreen which is a fold-down arrangement with pivoting 'wings' serving the rear compartment, ...
