BMW Group and Rolls-Royce have brought the new “baby-Rolls” at the Geneva Auto Show. The concept, named EX200, was unveiled less than two weeks ago and it was expected to make its world debut in Geneva.

The new Rolls-Royce EX200 shares the same platform with the new 7 Series and it imports some design elements from Phantom and Drophead Coupe, but fit into a shorter wheelbase. The EX200 has a very modern, round design and people that saw the car yesterday were impressed by how much smaller and sportier it really is.

Of course, it is still larger than most luxury sedans, at 212.6 inches long, 83 inches wide and 61 inches tall. To sweeten the deal -if you can call it this way- the Rolls-Royce EX200 will be powered by a V12 engine not seen before on any BMW Group product.

If you’re worried about the naming convention, you can breathe now, as with the previous models, when the 200EX enters production, it will lose the traditional Concept name tag in favor of something like Silver Cloud.

Pricing? Still unknown, but do expect to pay an arm and a leg for such a luxurious ride.
