It used an improved version of the Phantom I engine in an all-new chassis. A "Continental" version, with a short wheelbase and stiffer springs, was offered.

Rolls-Royce Phantom II (26EX)

Continental Model. The car body designer Ivan Evernden built a one-off shortwheelbase Phantom, which was designated as 26EX. This car had a tuned engine, and some other improvements. The sales department initially showed no interest in 26EX but, when Evernden returned to the office from the 1930 Biarritz Grand Concours d'Elegance, (where 26EX had won the Grand Prix d'Honneur), he came to know that the sales department already announced the new "Phantom II Continental Saloon" to be ready for market. Two US-market series, AJS and AMS, were built at Derby.
