We showed you spy photos of the new "baby" Rolls-Royce sedan earlier this year--and now, Britain's Autocar magazine reports the smaller RR sedan is due for a world debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

The magazine says the car will be shown as a concept, much as the recent Phantom Drophead and Coupe were shown as 100EX and 101EX concepts on the auto-show circuit.

The new car, in fact, isn't all that small, and Autocar surmises that its rear doors might be rear-hinged in "suicide" style--or "coach," as Rolls-Royce prefers.

Our spies tell us the new Roller will sport 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.
