2011 Rolls-Royce Sedan: Spied!

Follow Marty

We nabbed some new spy shots of Rolls Royce's new baby--dubbed internally as the RR4. Despite sharing some platform elements with the upcoming BMW 7-Series, the RR4 still manages to have entirely different dimensions--longer, wider and taller, with a longer wheelbase to boot. The RR4 has clearly been inspired by the Rolls-Royce Phantom, only a bit less ostentatious. The RR4 will give BMW a new entry to slot between the Phantom and the 7-Series, finally providing some meaningful cannon fodder for rival Bentley's Continental Flying Spur.

A range of engines have been rumored, including a detuned version of the Phantom's 453-hp 6.75-liter V-12 engine, the BMW X6's 407-hp 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8, or the 441-hp 6.0-liter V-12 from the current BMW 760i. The U.K.'s Autocar magazine also reports that a diesel is also a real possibility for the RR4's engine bay. --KGP Photography

  1. "the RR4 still manages to have entirely different dimensions–longer, wider and taller, with a longer wheelbase to boot. "

    Any numbers for either the next 7 or the "baby roller"? or at least the differences? How much "longer, wider and taller" than the next 7?

    (I drive a '98 740iL and the 121 " wheelbase and 201-3" length are plenty long, although trunk space is not much due to full size spare making it shallow. Bought it for peanuts in 05.. identical style and color with Bond's "rental" in 97's "Tomorrow never dies")

    But based on the above, "baby" may not be the right word.
