Classic Driver at the Geneva Show: Rolls-Royce 200EX

Technical details of the new Rolls-Royce ‘experimental’ saloon, as covered last month in Classic Driver, were revealed well in advance of the show. Nevertheless, the sight of the unveiled 200EX sitting on the stand next to the Phantom and Phantom Drophead brought home its – relatively – compact dimensions and rather more restrained image.

It’s still mightily impressive, as any new Rolls would be. But, while it would stand out on its own as a gloriously indulgent and luxurious saloon, next to its larger siblings it carried a definite aura of moderation: an aura totally in tune with the times.
