While all the gory details surrounding the new Rolls-Royce coupe – including its true name, "Corniche" is just a savory-sounding best guess right now – are still shrouded in mystery, this new set of clandestinely foraged images proves that the car probably won't be a slouch in terms of performance.

The Ghost-based Roller was spotted on the Nürburgring Nordschleife recently, demonstrating its sporting chops at the same time it was showing off it's impressive patrician nose. Expectations are that, when the new coupe is shown off for real at the Geneva Motor Show in March of next year, that nose will belong to the fastest production car to ever wear the Spirit of Ecstasy.

Indications are that the Corniche will be rocking a turbocharged V12, making in the ballpark of 600 horsepower, and using an eight-speed transmission.

        Yeah, that side window could easily be mistaken for the fifth-gen Mustang. I was hoping it was the LWB Mustang-based Lincoln Mark XI mule...

      Good to see Dodge further developing the Challenger. A two-door sedan would be swell and from the looks of the c-pillar, it's spot on Dodge all the way. A big honk'n car for less than $45 grand. Yay for Dodge.

      They've camo'd the car quite well because that looks like a Mustang with elephantiasis and the anti-roll control of a 70's Cadillac.

      I still can't understand what's going on with the back half. It kinda looks like there are two shrunken doors back there...
