Rolls-Royce 100EX Experimental Centenary Car
The 100EX was created to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the collaboration between entrepreneur Charles Rolls and engineer Frederick Royce. The car stands out with its seven-foot-tall, solid silver Spirit of Ecstasy which is located unusually close to the driver's seat. Although Rolls-Royce has not released the engine power figures, experts have estimated the power and torque at around 700 brake horse-power and 950 Newton metres, respectively. It was speculated that the 100EX might be put into mass production, though the company collectively decided against the idea due to the lack of commercial success which they had experienced with the Phantom.
Despite not being manufactured, the car's existing parts are all fully operational. While the 100EX would have filled the gap left by the now defunct Corniche, a two-door, four-seat convertible, codenamed RR02, was confirmed for a 2007 production run. The car's design was inspired by the 100EX's, and it also features the 6.75 litre V12 engine from the Phantom. The RR02 is larger than its predecessor and has the following specs: 9.0 litre 64 valve V16 engine, 6 Speed automatic transmission, dimensions: (Height 1561 mm, Width 1990 mm and Length 5669 mm).
