Rolls-Royce will “never” build a small car

Rolls-Royce will not offer a smaller car in the future because, according to the brand, there’s no demand for such a thing.

It kind of makes sense when you think about it. Rolls-Royce buyers typically have a fair few cars, and, ostensibly, somewhere to park them.

At the 2015 Frankfurt motor show media spoke with Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Cars director of design, who made it clear that there’s no space for a small Roller in the ranks. For reference, the Wraith four-seat, two-door coupe measures 5269 millimetres long, and the larger five-seat, four-door Phantom sedan spans 5842mm long.

“Do you mean smaller than ? No,” he said, of the chances of a smaller sedan or two-door coupe/drophead convertible.

“I can honestly say, because normally when that kind of question comes to me, there’s a little bit of a flick of an eyebrow that says – ah, you are!,” he said.

“But no. Never. We don’t need to,” Taylor asserted.

Rolls-Royce Cars product communications manager James Warren elaborated on the notion of only offering sizeable cars.
