Car Tech Video: Rolls-Royce 200EX concept

1:09 /

This is what Rolls-Royce calls downsizing. Good thing they don't own Honda.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:12 >> When talking about a Rolls Royce, the term "small car" is relative. Inches longer than any Mercedes, but over a foot shorter than a Rolls Phantom is this, the 200 EX Concept. It'll be called the "Silver Ghost" when it hits showrooms in 2010. Rolls would tell you it's dynamic and less formal. I guess that means it's the first Rolls you can drive in jeans and not feel foolish. The rear doors still hinge at the rear, suicide style or "coach door" as they said. And the whole things designed, so while the side pillars are more curved and a little less bulky and imposing, they still don't really let on who's riding in the back. A full-length sunroof is available. All of this pushed around by an all-new V12. The production model will peek its head out at the Frankfurt show in fall '09, and be priced around 280,000, which they tell me is a bargain for a Rolls Royce. ^E00:01:09
