Inside Line has... well, the inside line on the oft-rumored Baby Roller, which is due to go on sale sometime in 2010. The new model won't share an engine with a current BMW product, but it's assumed that the new 7-series will serve as the platform for what's being referred to as the RR4.
The recent round of spy shots of the "small" Rolls-Royce indicates that testing is well underway and it's been confirmed that the company will build the new model at its Goodwood facility. There's no definitive date for the debut, but Rolls-Royce execs expect the RR4 to push the automaker's sales well over the 1,010 vehicles it sold last year.

      when i first saw the title, i thought of a machine that rolled over babies

      I think it might be the new updated 7 series next to the baby rolls

      7 series platform?

      I'm guessing this is to compete with Bentley's CGT at the $150k+ level and not the $400k+ Maybach.

      Even at this level there aren't too many people willing to go all the way and buy a RR Phantom.

      im more excited about the future Bimmer right next to it.

      I have a feeling the "Baby Roller" is going to look like a Chrysler 300...which is sad because the 300 actually looks like a Baby Roller... Chrysler just beat 'em to the punchline.

      There's probably a market for a "baby" Rolls-Royce. Look at what Bentley has done with the GT.

      However, I don't see too many babies that are $150,000 . . . so perhaps that moniker is not really too accurate.

      My prediction is that this car will end up costing much more then was originally planned, share far to many interior parts with (in comparison) lesser vehicles from BMW, and end up with terrible resale value and lessening the image of what a Rolls Royce is.

        Maybe, but I doubt it. The Bentley Continental GT adn Flying Spur models have done nothing but enhance Bentley's reputation and bottom line. And the $400K Brooklands just introduced still sells out. If Rolls issues a car comparable to the Flying Spur, it could work well for them. And remember the "lesser vehicle" is the BMW 7 series, which starts at close to $80K and goes up to $130K. Not too shabby a donor.

      Just from those stupid spy pics I can tell this thing is going to be a looker.
