Luxury car manufacturer reveals new, smaller model's name
20 April 2009

Rolls-Royce has announced it will call its new, smaller model the Ghost.

The car has been nicknamed the 'baby Rolls-Royce' during its development, codenamed the 'RR4' and launched as a concept car at this year's Geneva motor show as the 200EX.

The announcement of the car's official name was made at today's Shanghai motor show. The production-ready car will be shown at this year's Frankfurt motor show, and it will go on sale late this year for around £170,000.

The 200EX concept car is said to be extremely close in looks to the production model.

Rolls-Royce bosses have already told Autocar that the car will be built using the same materials and manufacturing standards as those of the Phantom. Its overall length is an imposing 5.4 metres.
