Rolls-Royce 100 101 EX Concept cars
Body design :
Sedan , coupe
The Rolls-Royce 100 EX is a concept car built by Rolls-Royce in 2004. EX stands for experimental model.
The car was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the meeting between businessman Charles Rolls and engineer Henry Royce . The data of the car speak for themselves, but the fact that the Solid Silver Spirit of Ecstasy is mounted 2.1 meters from the driver can give an idea of the actual dimensions of this car. The manufacturer did not comment on the engine power, but the trade press estimated it to be about 700 bhp (515 kW) and the torque to 950 Nm. Although Rolls-Royce announced that this concept car should never be mass-produced, the manufacturer apparently changed its mind because in January 2007, the similar-looking Phantom Drophead Coupe appeared.

In 2006, the Rolls-Royce 101 EX , a GT coupe prototype based on the 100 EX was shown at the Geneva Motor Show . The 101 EX had the same aluminum " space frame" as the Rolls-Royce Phantom VII , but in a shortened version. The car was 241 mm shorter than the phantom saloon and had a lower roofline. He also owned the Phantom's engine, a 6.75 L V12. The production version of this concept vehicle, the Phantom Coupe debuted at the Geneva Motor Show 2008.
The 101 EX appeared in an episode of British TV magazine Top Gear , where Jeremy Clarkson referred to him as the "Rolls-Royce Vulgarsonic" for its lighted headliner
