A nod to the past, but with a bold look towards the future is the theme behind Rolls Royce's latest concept, the 101-EX. So says Ian Cameron, the marque's chief designer who helped unveil what may be an advanced peek at the company's future coupe. As reported before, the big Roller's based on a shortened Phantom platform and crafted from aluminum and tungsten. Sitting atop tasteful 21" 7-spoke alloys with comfortable seating four passengers, it looks to be just the thing for stately motoring. Inside, aluminum, leather and rosewood/red oak trim provide a deliciously rich atmosphere, and a special fiber optic lighting system in the headliner hints at a starlit sky.
