Rolls Royce Phantom II 1929 Electrogenic

What if you have a 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II in your garage, but you wish it was a little faster than it once was? Then you can of course get started with the 7.7-liter combustion engine, but an electric powertrain is also possible. The British Electrogenic proves this.

Electrogenic is a British company that is mainly engaged in electrifying British classics such as Minis and Land Rovers, but this time it is going wild on a very classic model: a 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II. It was commissioned by a customer stripped of its 7.7-liter six-in-line and now has an electric powertrain on board, so that the car has more than four times more power. Originally, the Phantom II had somewhere between 40 and 50 hp, but thanks to an electric motor on the rear axle, that is now about 205 hp.

That engine draws its power from a whopping 93 kWh battery pack, which makes the Rolls a real world range has of about 240 km – according to its creators. Electrogenic’s conversion is completely reversible and was “his most complex conversion to date.” The company would have spent thousands of hours on the (technical) metamorphosis, also to take care of everything down to the last detail. For example, it made new gauges in the dashboard that look like the old ones, but display relevant information for the EV, and it dressed the battery pack of the Rolls – which houses the original powertrain – with a polished aluminum closet.

Electrogenic has also worked on the finishing of the battery pack, which is housed under the hood.

Electrogenic also applied modern technology on other fronts, because it equipped the interior of the gigantic Rolls-Royce with a Hi-Fi system with a subwoofer and the possibility to play music via Bluetooth. In addition, the British modified the original braking system of the Rolls-Royce, so that the engine can also be braked to recover energy.

1,681 units of the Rolls-Royce Phantom II were produced between 1920 and 1935. Do you nevertheless find a (reversible) conversion like this a sacrilege, or a pragmatic upgrade of driving heritage?
