The headlights sport a new smooth horizontal line between the daytime running lights above the grille. The latter is also revised so that the brand badge and lo Spirit of Ecstasy gain prominence.
The side view retains the key lines. The most noticeable change in this area sono the new 3D milled stainless steel wheels with triangular facets. A series of classic design wheels that recall the models of the brand sold in the 1920s are also available on request.
