It's been a spell since Rolls-Royce put the aging Phantom under the knife. In truth, the luxoliner hasn't seen any serious revision since it debuted in 2003, but our spy photographers have just managed to click a few photos of a vehicle that may hint at changes to come. Unfortunately for carspotters, Rolls-Royce engineers and designers appear to have cleverly hid the vehicle's new face under stickers designed to make the front end appear identical to the old model. The decal treatment makes it difficult to see exactly what Rolls-Royce has planned for the Phantom, but we'd wager the changes will remain mild.

Expect to see minor updates to the vehicle's lighting out front. Indoors, parent company BMW may throw in an updated navigation system and connectivity hardare. Under the hood, the new Phantom is likely to boast a little bit more power with fewer emissions through fine-tuning, but we don't expect a wholesale powertrain swap-out. Expect the price tag to remain somewhere between lofty and ludicrous.

      According to other sites they are getting rid of the daytime running lights, which you can tell as that is just a sticker where the lights used to be. It should be a pretty compressed LED strip for all the lighting purposes.

      Typical Swedish parking lots, it's like going forward in time and see the future of the road. Did I tell you we also have lasers in everything? And polar bears run through the streets everywhere, true story...

      Looks the same to me, just like any other "insert the year model here" out there.

      It just looks like the headlights will be a bit shorter (height-wise), similar to what is on the Rolls-Royce Ghost. The same thing might apply to the lights below the headlights as well, based on the creases of the "stickers" on that portion.

      Are you sure it isn't a "bespoke" model...damn I hate that word.
