Rolls-Royce is kicking around the idea of bring the stretched-wheelbase Phantom to the US, after seeing a 433% uptick in demand for the model elsewhere in the world (before anyone gets too excited, that represents 30 units compared to original production projections of 9 for this year). The extra 10 inches and 200 lbs, achieved via longer extrusions of the chassis rails, puts the car into a different certification class in the US. Whether this validation will be cost-prohibitive for so few vehicles remains to be determined, but if RR decides to bring over the car, it's likely to show up about a year from now.
