Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has confirmed that a series version of the two-door, four-seat experimental car, 101EX (debuted at the Geneva motor show in 2006), will be launched in 2008. Production is scheduled to begin next summer. It will be hand-built at the company's manufacturing plant in Goodwood, England.

This model will complete the Phantom family line-up alongside the Phantom, Phantom Extended Wheelbase and Phantom Drophead Coup.

The new car will be an elegant two-door, four-seat coupe that builds on the extraordinary driving experience offered in the Phantom and Drophead Coup. It will use an all-aluminium construction similar to the rest of the Phantom family. However, it will be a unique car in the Phantom family, designed around the desire to create the world's foremost transcontinental tourer.

Outright power will be identical to the other Phantom models - an impressive 453hp and 720Nm of torque - however the coup will be subtly tuned with more emphasis placed on the driver. The body will be shorter than the Phantom sedan and there will be revisions to the suspension and chassis set-up.

Rolls-Royce Chief Designer, Ian Cameron, said, "We wanted to emphasize the performance potential of the 6.75 liter V12 engine and the effortless experience it delivers. While never overtly sporty, Rolls-Royce is a brand that has always offered owners a powerful and refined drive."
