The 2012 Rolls-Royce Phantom has a new bumper, some changes in the interior, and a rectangular LED lower light instead of the round one from before. You can even order it with an eight-speed automatic in case the six-speed ZF unit seems prehistoric.

But the best standard feature is the ability to absolutely ruin the quaint British countryside.

The Phantom is a 5,478 lb tank with a 6,749 cc V12 in the front sending 454 horsepower and 531 pound feet to the rear tires. Rear tires that are very capable of throwing up tons of mud on a wet British lawn.

This video puts all that power to good use, as the big Roller goes for the opposite of a quiet Sunday drive. Those Grey Poupon stains on the rear seats will be tough to get out.
