After the 2004 introduction of the 100EX concept, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars unveiled a second experimental car, the 101EX. Unveiled at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the 101EX was hand built to explore a potential design direction for a future coupe model. "It is a very modern car, a 21st century design that respectfully nods to the past but focuses indisputably on the future," said Ian Cameron, Chief Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

The Rolls-Royce 101EX uses the same lightweight aluminium construction that was developed for the Phantom, although the body is shorter by 240mm (9.4 inches). A full four-seat coupé, twin coach doors add to the 101EX’s rakish good looks and streamlined coupe profile.

The roofline is lower than the Phantom’s, with a shorter glass area. Streamlined styling starts at the front with the famous grille, discreetly reclined, and extends back across a brushed aluminium bonnet and windscreen surround. The rest of the sleek bodywork is finished in dark tungsten. New 21-inch forged aluminium wheels complete the exterior look.

Inside, the cosseting interior has been designed for elegance and maximum comfort for all four occupants. Machined aluminium, fine leather and rosewood and red oak veneers are used throughout. Slimline bucket seats offer outstanding comfort for front passengers while the exceptionally spacious rear seat delivers intimate comfort for two. Privacy is assured by the sweeping C-pillars.

The design team has experimented with interior lighting on 101EX, and the car features a ‘starlight headliner’ made up of hundreds of fibre optic cables to give the impression of a star filled night sky.
