If this ultra-luxury prototype is an indication of coup-ays to come, the Rolls franchise may soon be extended by one. Just as the 100EX concept heralded the coming of the Phantom cabrio, the 101EX could be a prototype of the next Phantom in coupe form. Its two doors open oppositely from those of standard coupes, such that they preserve the dignity-on-entrance of back-seat passengers of the well-heeled. Whether the boys at Goodwood will pull the trigger on the coupe is still anyone's guess, but at least they've — lead designer Ian Cameron, that is — derived the sexiest brick this side of Trafalgar Square. And yes, that's as sexy as a Rolls gets.
