The Rolls-Royce Phantom gets stretched

Fortunately, it doesn't look like other stretch limos.



Given the wild proliferation of stretch limos on the road today, we've always appreciated Rolls-Royce's restraint in preserving its traditional form. So it was with some trepidation that we learned of its newly extended version of the classic Phantom.

But thankfully, RR hasn't lost its senses in designing its stretched model, which has an extended-wheelbase that's 25 centimeters longer (just under 10 inches). The extension supposedly provides more leg room for the rear seats, though fellow Craver (and auto guru) Kevin Massy observes that the interior doesn't seem significantly more spacious than the original model, at least in the photos.

Either way, we're relieved that the additional middle section hasn't ruined the Phantom's stunning lines and overall design. Because, whenever stretching is involved, we all know how easily things can go awry.
