Rolls Royce 200EX RR4 near-production concept (Rolls Royce Ghost)
Rolls-Royce has released brief details and photos of its smaller new ‘RR4’ model. Dubbed the 200EX for now, the baby Rolls-Royce seen here is still in concept form, but the final production version should be almost the same as this one, with a traditional name. And it is still a very large full-size car.
The 200EX is built on the 7-Series platform and is 5.4 metres in length, 1.95 metres in width, 1.55 metres in height, and has a wheelbase of 3.3 metres. Features include seating for four, air suspension, LED headlights, rear ‘suicide’ doors, 20-inch alloy wheels with 255/45 front and 285/40 rear tyres, and an unknown new V12 engine.
The interior of 200EX is finished in supple, natural grain Crème Light leather, with Cornsilk carpets and cashmere blend headliner. The featured wood veneer is Santos Palissander, if all that makes any sense to you.
The concept 200EX will debut at the upcoming 2009 Geneva Auto Show, while the production 2010 Rolls-Royce model will debut later this year.
Update: It is now called the Rolls Royce Ghost.
