Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead Coupe to be unveiled in 2015 image

The British based luxury automaker Rolls-Royce is planning to officially introduce a convertible version of the Wraith over the next couple of years, in 2015.

After the brand new Rolls-Royce Wraith has been officially unveiled just earlier this year, and with the model capturing the heart of many during its many presentations across the globe, time has come for the carmaker to think about adding a convertible version of this luxury car to its lineup. The model in question will be named the Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead Coupe and it will be unveiled in 2015.

The announcement hasn’t been made in an official press release or something but it has been actually reconfirmed by the company’s chief, Torsten Muller-Otvos. The brand new model will lower the carmaker’s average age of customers and it will also increase the popularity of the luxury brand, which is currently owned by BMW, and this is a fact, considering the many positive reviews received by the Wraith.

The new Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead Coupe will get the same 6.6 liter V12 engine under its hood as the regular car, producing a total output of 632 HP (465 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint is made in 4.6 seconds in the coupe but the convertible may be a bit slower because of the added weight.
