New pictures of the baby Rolls Royce codenamed RR4 have been released. It’s badged as the 200EX concept and will make its first public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The RR4 is based on the BMW 7 Series long-wheel-base platform but it’s slightly longer and wider than the BMW flagship. Despite being 5.4m long the 200EX/ RR4 is still shorter than the 5.8m ultra über Phantom. Even longer is the Phantom long-wheel-base at 6m.
As you may have noticed rear legroom is not found wanting at all. Those tall American basketball players who are part of the RR4’s target market will find it quite useful and comfortable. Infotainment systems like DVD player and screens as well as electronic button to open and close everything will feature.
We are expecting a brand new V12 engine to power the RR4. It may be mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox but an 8-speed is more likely. There are obviously no prices being mentioned of the car yet but a figure of US$257,000 (around R2.6 million) has been bandied about.
