Rolls-Royce Coupe Spotted, Company Confirms Production

One day after BMW boss Norbert Reithofer double-confirmed its existence, Austrian web site Österreich posted a set of images showing what they say is a prototype of new Rolls-Royce coupe. The car in question, spotted in Vienna, shares a certain dead-on similarity to the 101EX concept car that hearkens a new level of entry into the Rolls Phantom world. And Rolls-Royce announced today a series version of the 101EX will be launched in 2008, with production scheduled to start next summer at its Goodwood plant. The model, they say, will complete the Phantom family lineup alongside the Phantom, Phantom Extended Wheelbase and Phantom Drophead Coupé.
