Rolls Royce 100EX Corniche

It's been awhile since we've heard from Rolls Royce about the 100EX concept, which had been announced as one of two new vehicles the ultra-exclusive brand would be bringing to market soon, the other being the long wheelbase Phantom. The 100EX debuted at Geneva in 2004 and production of a four-door convertible based on the concept is scheduled to go on sale in late 2006 as a 2007 model. Though the 100EX is motivated by an epic 600-hp powerplant displacing 9.0L throughout 16 cylinders, the production model, likely to be called the Corniche, will supposedly make do with the Phantom's 453-hp V12. RR has just released these pictures of the 100EX rolling around the isle of Manhattan increasing property value wherever it roamed.
