Rolls-Royce 200EX – Click above for high-res image gallery

Despite the fact that Rolls Royce is still calling its 200EX (aka RR4) a concept, the vehicle that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month is, in reality, a thinly disguised future production model that could possibly revive the Silver Ghost nameplate from the early 1900s. According to the European rumormill, the brand may be considering expanding the new downsized range with coupe and droptop versions that would all be based on the same architecture that's been borrowed from the latest BMW 7 Series.

We can't speak to the voracity of these rumors, but the move does seem to make sense as it would follow the same pattern that RR took with its larger Phantom range. In any case, we're expecting a production model based on the 200EX concept to bow later this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

      So..... If it's based on the 7-Series, and they're making a coupe and a convertible....

      Can we expect an 8-Series coupe and convertible...? =D

      I think you meant veracity, not voracity.

      Interior is nice.
      Exterior looks like an old '70's era American car.

      Silver Ghost...for some reason it sounds familiar (and it sounds better than Phantom, IMO).
      I really like this car. I really do.
