Late last year, an unnamed Rolls-Royce source told the media about the possibility of the development of a fourth model. Then the first spy shots of the smaller Rolls
appeared in British magazines.
So it's no surprise there were plenty of questions about the small Rolls-Royce at the Geneva Motor Show
. There were, however, fewer answers regarding the new car, as executives remained tight-lipped about the new project.
Instead, Rolls-Royce used its Geneva show stage to introduce the new Phantom Coupe
, the production version of the 101EX concept shown in 2006. Ian Robinson, Chairman of the board of directors of Rolls-Royce, said that the new coupe is bringing in many early orders, two-thirds of them new to the brand.
The new Coupe has the stiffest chassis ever done in a Rolls-Royce, the company says. There's no word on U.S. pricing or availability yet, but the new Coupe is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms by the end of the year.
