Rolls-Royce has officially announced that it is to launch a new convertible model which will be released by mid-2016.

It will be built on the success of the Phantom, Ghost and Wraith by continuing to deliver effortless, open-top touring through the perfect marriage of modern Rolls-Royce luxury, style and elegance with an engaging driving experience. Although not much is known about the new model, according to some reports it is expected to be a Wraith-based drophead tourer.

We are currently developing an exciting and thoroughly contemporary interpretation of a pinnacle drophead tourer which will introduce even more discerning men and women to Rolls-Royce ownership.”

Peter Schwarzenbauer, Chairman of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, welcomed the announcement saying, “The announcement of a new Rolls-Royce model is always a seminal moment in the automobile industry. When it arrives in 2016, this elegant and sensuous new car will build on the success of our current models and will play a key part in fulfilling Rolls-Royce Motor Car’s commitment to long-term sustainable growth.”
