Rolls Royce RR4 specification details released

Historically, Rolls-Royce does not quote horsepower numbers, to talk of such things is just too crass. However, things have changed and now Rolls is being a bit more forthcoming about details for its upcoming “baby” RR4 model, including approximate horsepower numbers.

The company has disclosed that the RR4 will be powered by a new, 6.6-litre turbocharged V12 engine that offers “upwards of 500bhp.” Further, it will route that grand output through a ZF transmission with eight forward gears. Despite its ability to generate big power figures, Rolls says that C02 output will be very low.

The news came from CEO Tom Purves himself at a New York press event for the 200EX, where the Geneva concept car is making its first stop on a world tour designed to get potential customers in the car and booking orders for the production RR4 version.

The BMW-owned British automaker has long been famous for its flawless interiors, but Purves promises that the RR4 will bring with it a new emphasis on driving entertainment: “We have consciously engineered this car to be more involving and dynamic for those owners around the world that will wish to drive it themselves.”
