BEIJING — Following in the footsteps of last year’s Shanghai debut of the Ghost Extended Wheelbase sedan, Rolls-Royce has revealed a Phantom II Extended Wheelbase sedan in Beijing today at Auto China 2012. No specifications on the extended length are available yet, but a Rolls-Royce press release on the extended wheelbase Phantom II says the model features “significant improvements in design, drive-train and technology.”
