Rolls-Royce releases images of 200EX Concept. But you may call it baby Rolls

Rolls-Royce has been developing a new car that is smaller than Phantom in order to have a bigger sales volume. Dubbed RR4, the baby Rolls, as it has been called by the press, has just made its first appearance, even if under a different name. This is the 200EX Concept.

This concept car is not exactly a concept, as we have already told you, but an anticipation. It is 5.40 m long, 1.95 m wide, 1.55 m tall and will be powered by a brand new V12 engine created by BMW. The new Rolls-Royce, in fact, will be heavily based on the new BMW 7 Series, although its platform is said to be completely different. Even if it not, this is something Rolls-Royce would have to say in order to clients not to feel fooled when buying the new car. With an expected price tag of 180,000 pounds, 200EX production version has to be a true Rolls-Royce.

Sales are expected to take place by the second quarter of 2010, with an official presentation of the RR4 at 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The official new name for the car is not known, yet, but rumours about bringing back the name Silver Ghost may give us the tip that was missing.
