Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has confirmed further details about the
production version of 200EX, the concept car shown at the Geneva Motor Show in early March 2009.
Rolls-Royce CEO, Tom Purves announced the details at a press conference in New York where 200EX is currently
being shown to potential customers on the first leg of a world tour.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Purves said, “There has been a great deal of interest in this car since we first
talked about producing a new model series in the autumn of 2006 and the reaction 200EX received at its unveiling
at Geneva was very positive. As we move another step closer to the start of production at Goodwood, it is exciting
to be able to share some of the specific technical details with customers and the media.”
He continued, “RR4 will deliver an authentic Rolls-Royce experience to owners, so expect peerless comfort
and build quality. However, we have consciously engineered this car to be more involving and dynamic for those
owners around the world that will wish to drive it themselves.”
RR4 will be powered by a brand new 6.6 litre turbo charged V12 engine unique to Rolls-Royce. The engine will be
combined with an 8-speed automatic ZF gearbox. This new drive-train will significantly improve fuel and CO2
efficiency over the already class leading Phantom series of cars. Engine power will be upwards of 373 kW.
It is expected that further details about the 'RR4' will be available in coming months.
