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.

      What's with those headlights? Yuck.

      I saw this car at Lime Rock on Labor Day. These photos actually make it look pretty good. It's much uglier in person.

      Although this car has some interesting features such as the reversed doors and enormous wheels along with incredible horsepower, it doesn't say Rolls. The imitation Rolls Royce grillwork doesn't impress. I just don't think the builders understand what made Rolls Royce a Rolls. Perhaps the lack of British influence. The Brits love their luxury automobile and probably abhore seeing it turned into a sports car. I personally love the hood but a Rolls needs a squared front end with the promenant Rolls Royce grille. Sometimes aerodynamics and art just don't mix.

      That has to be the dumbest, most rude looking thing I've ever seen. The one with the biker is priceless, now all they need is to run over some homeless people to drive the idea home.

      This thing does prove that there is no relationship between wealth and good taste.

      I really think this is some car. Very British and retro to some degree with the stiff lines. This car is a lot nice the some of the newer English cars such as the Jaugar XK.

      It really needs a lower stance, its kinda bulky. I love how the grill hides in the front end, thats hot, but the color scheme is ugly, as is the wheels. Need to be more polished. The headlights are great, and the reversed hedged doors will definitely get the job done.
