2010 Rolls-Royce RR4 will be powered by X6’s V8 twin-turbo
Last month, Rolls Royce unveiled the first sketches of the 2010 RR4, and today Car and Driver announced that future baby Phantom will be powered by a modified version of the V8 twin-turbo from the BMW X6. A diesel option will join the RR4 lineup in the future.
The 2010 RR4 will be priced at around $225,000 and Rolls Royce expect to sell over a 1,000 units a year.
The Rolls-Royce RR4 will share platform with upcoming next-generation 2009 BMW 7-Series. Even though the platform will help cut some of the pounds, the RR4 is still expected to weigh well over 5,000 pounds.
The future luxury sedan will be produced at Goodwood, England plant and sales will begin in the later part of 2009 or early 2010.
