The breathtaking Rolls Royce 200EX – will make its UK public debut at Salon Privé, the ultimate luxury and super car show that runs from 22-24 July, at London’s Hurlingham Club.
This will be the first public display of 200EX in Europe, following its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, in February 2009, and is part of a limited world tour that sees the car visit just six locations around the world.
The car is the experimental forerunner to the new Ghost model that will begin production at Goodwood later this year. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Chief Executive Officer, Tom Purves, has already confirmed that the Ghost will be powered by a 6.6-litre, turbocharged V12 engine producing over 500BHP.
There is significant customer interest in the Ghost and potential customers will get a chance to see the inspiration behind that car at Salon Privé. Also in attendance will be Design Projects Leader, Alan Sheppard, who will be on hand to offer visitors a unique insight into the process of designing a modern Rolls-Royce.
Said Salon Privé co-founder, David Bagley: “We’re honoured to be chosen to host the 200EX UK public debut and to be one of the few worldwide venues on the 200EX global tour. Rolls-Royce evidently sees merit in the audience that Salon Privé delivers”.
This year’s Salon Privé is expected to be the biggest yet, with ticket demand higher than ever, driven by an unprecedented number of super and luxury car debuts and an extensive Concours d’ Elégance.
