Widebody Rolls-Royce Phantom Looks Right, Has Chiseled Arches

If you're not following the tuning trends online, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is one of the last names you'd think of when talking about a tuning project. Well, out there in the modding realm, the Big Daddy Roller (as opposed to the Small Daddy Roller, which is the Ghost) has a special place.

For now, we'll focus on a rendering, since this pixel play managed to achieve so much with so little. To be more precise, the virtual tuning job follows the minimalist design that defines the British brand. As such, we're talking about fine-line wheel arches, which still manage to enter the luxury sedan in the "widebody" category, albeit only just.

It looks like somebody has played with the air suspension of the lavish saloon, which is why the machine now sits closer to the asphalt.

Speaking of the RR's connection to the road, this is now established via a set of wheels that follow the traditional Goodwood styling, but come with what appears to be a deep concave design.

Oh, and if we zoom in on the front of the V12 toy, there seems to be a discreet splitter acting as the new chin of the vehicle.

Now, in case you're wondering how far things have gone in terms of real-world Rolls-Royce modification, this Silver Shadow might just provide an answer.

We're talking about a machine that has been given a drift car conversion, hydraulic handbrake and all - this used to be race by Boyzone's Shane Lynch, but the slip angle instrument has traded hands.

Of course, there's no need for a hydraulic handbrake out on the street, Oh, no. The requirements of the road are different and, if you ask the clientele who does follow the said trends, these involve hard to digest aero kits, such as the ones coming from Japanese developer Office K.
