Internally called the RR4, the Rolls EX200 Concept is expected to hit the floor at the Geneva Motor Show next month in Switzerland. We’ve got the spyshots of the baby Rolls thanks to the boys and girls at Motor Authority. Follow the jump formore details and spyshots (including the interior!).
Does the iDrive knob look familiar? It should. The new RR4 is based on the long wheelbase F02 BMW 7-series but is expected to get a V12 under the hood. Will it be the same V12 as the 760Li? Time will tell. The new mini-Roller is expected to undercut the price of the Phantom but there could still be overlap in pricing between the two models with special editions and whatnot. The Rolls-Royce company refuses to call this the “cheap Rolls Royce” because it is still expected to be more expensive than any Bentley for sale today, or so they claim. Will the RR4 cost more than the Brooklands? Really?
We’ll have more details on the new Rolls Royce at the Geneva Motor Show, where RR is expected to unveil the car under the EX200 moniker. “EX” denotes that the vehicle is a concept. But don’t be fooled, because it is no more a concept than (ironically enough) BMW’s concepts, and should look nearly identical to the real deal in 2010. This new mini-Rolls could even revive the Silver Shadow name.
Rappers, Premier League footballers, and Hollywood celebs wait with bated breath.
