Hiding under the crude BMW 7-Series camouflage of this prototype is the upcoming new Rolls Royce entry level model internally code named RR 4 but also known as the “baby” Phantom.
The steel body's platform will share components with the new BMW 7-series, but it will be considerably longer than BMW’s flagship. The new four door luxury sedan is going to feature styling elements of its big brother Phantom, such as the rear hinged suicide back doors, a large chrome grille and the retractable hood ornament, however, compared to the big Phantom it will be lower and shorter. Release of the RR 4 is expected before the end of this decade.
Power is said to come from a 6.0 litre V12 engine making 440 bhp. Talk is also of a diesel engine being made available later on. Its sales price is estimated between 200,000 and 300,000 Euros.
