Power Reserve
In place of a tachometer, Phantom’s instrument cluster includes a Power Reserve gauge — another nod to previous generations. At idle, the Power Reserve needle sits at 100 percent; under acceleration it drops to a lower percentage, reflecting how aggressively the driver is accelerating. Push the accelerator to the floor and the needle drops toward zero, reaching zero as the engine achieves maximum power output.
