Many are calling it ‘the baby Roller’, however that is just in perspective really, because the Rolls Royce 200EX concept is no compact hatchback.
In fact, at 212.6 inches long, it is 13 inches longer than a BMW 7-series. However it is smaller than the Phantom, even though not by much (435mm shorter to be exact).
You don’t get a downsized engine either, this one still gets a V12, so if you are a bit of an environmentalist, this car won’t be for you.
Neither will it be for those who have recently been hit hard by the global economic crisis, as this car will be priced at over $350,000.
For that sort of money, you get the softest leather seats, cornsilk carpets, and cashmere blend headliner. Plus your choice of wood grain and all the chrome you can wish for.
The car sitting at the Geneva Motor Show might say ‘concept’, but don’t be fooled because this car is production ready. Expect to see the production version at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year.
