The CEO of Rolls-Royce Ian Robertson has said the introduction of this new model would see the brand's annual production double to 1600 units.

Robertson's only description of the new baby Rolls to reporters at last year's Geneva Motor Show was that it would be “unmistakably a Rolls-Royce”.

To reduce development costs and save time, Rolls-Royce engineers will use many electronic components from BMW's long wheelbase 7-Series.

However its engine will be completely unique to Rolls-Royce and “will have the attributes and behaviour of a Rolls-Royce” said Robertson.
