In the presentation of the new coupe, Ian Robertson, Rolls-Royce chairman, has confirmed the production of the "baby Rolls", dubbed the RR4, for 2010.

Rolls-Royce has very little to complain about, if anything at all. Production figures do not cease to increase and the Phantom Drophead Coupe has its full 2008 production sold. This is what Ian Robertson, the British automaker’s chairman, has stated yesterday minutes before presenting Rolls-Royce biggest news in quite some time, the Phantom Coupe .

More than just presenting the new coupe, said to be the most driver-oriented car in the company’s history, Robertson has confirmed the “baby Rolls” for 2010, dubbed the RR4, anticipating its next “concept car” for 2009, which will very likely be the new vehicle with some make-up on. He has even said some of the prototypes have been snapped around.

Anyway, the new coupe, based on the 101EX Concept, will already represent a great deal of work for Rolls-Royce, considering the high demand its convertible version, the Drophead, is facing all around the world.

Equipped with the traditional V12 6.75-litre engine, which no longer generates “enough” output, as the British manufacturer used to say, but rather healthy 453 cv and 720 Nm, which are more than desirable for the great majority of drivers.

The Phantom Coupe is said to be very driver oriented because it is build over the convertible structure and features the same suicide doors, which is said to have provided a pretty stiff body and, therefore, remarkable driving dynamics. Few people will have the chance to confirm this, but, if they don’t, what is very unlikely, the world will surely know about that.
