They might look a little bit alike, but I think all car mfgs copied bits and pieces--and some maybe even more than a bit. There was a discussion some time back on cars both here in US and in Europe that were very similar & had features close enough from another car that you had to look twice.
On the concept drawings, it mentions the artist that did them came over from Sweden in 47. Didn't RR use an outside body builder just like Packard then? Hooper, Mulliner and others, I believe. Maybe he saw or had access to some of those ideas.
