The Rolls-Royce 200EX concept which first went on display at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show is a four door, five seat luxury car designed to preview a new production model from the company.

Rolls-Royce choose to call their concept cars "Experimental cars", hence the EX in the name. This is because unlike most concept cars from other companies the concept vehicles which Rolls-Royce produce are fully functioning and very close to what the finished design will look like.

EX cars offer Rolls-Royce's designers and engineers the opportunity for real-world innovation and testing. They are used to showcase new components and engineering techniques as well as exterior and interior designs. "Modern automotive engineering is a balance of creativity, innovation and application. 200EX is an opportunity to assess these new ideas", says Helmut Riedl, Director of Engineering.

The styling of the Rolls-Royce 200EX is intended to be less formal than previous models but with the same feeling of quality and refinement. Like all contemporary Rolls-Royce models the 200EX is characterized by large, chunky panels and simple strong lines which run the entire length of the vehicle. "What you see is a modern car that is immediately recognizable as a true Rolls-Royce, even from angles that obscure the grille and Spirit of Ecstasy. Design elements such as the elevated prow, long bonnet, short front overhang, sharply raked A-pillar and elegant tail give 200EX an air of informal presence - powerful but unobtrusive," says Ian Cameron, the 200EX's chief designer.

The exterior of the vehicle is finished in Darkest Tungsten, which contrasts with the silver satin finish applied to the bonnet and A-pillar. Seven-spoke, 20-inch wheels complete the the exterior.

Revived in 2003 on the Phantom, the signature rear hinged rear doors lend added functionality and impact to the design. Opening through 83 degrees, the coach doors offer the widest rear access in the car industry.

Inside, and as expected, the 200EX is furnished with fine materials and exquisite detailing. Elegant, frosted lamps and chrome door handles feature, while details include traditional violin key switches, eyeball air vents, opaque dials and refined instrumentation. The interior is upholstered in natural grain Creme Light leather, with Cornsilk carpets and cashmere blend headliner. The wood veneer is Santos Palissander, chosen for its contemporary look and striking grain.

Powering the Rolls-Royce 200EX is a V12 engine.
