Rolls-Royce runs quite a small family, so the launch of every new model is a cause for celebration. As it was expected, the Goodwood-based luxury auto maker is preparing a convertible version of the recently-launched Rolls-Royce Wraith in 2015.
To be called the Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead Coupe, this model will be ideal for those who may find the Phantom Drophead Coupe a bit too large. The Wraith, after all, is dubbed the driver’s Roller, and it is based on the Ghost, which itself is based on a BMW 7-Series. So in theory, at least, the Wraith Drophead should drive like a BMW.
That is not to say it will blow your mind round corners. Even though the Wraith is said to be the most dynamic Rolls-Royce ever built, it’s still a Rolls-Royce. It is still posh and plush and superbly comfortable. Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead will make a fantastic open-top cruiser for those who are exhausted from thrashing their Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
As Rolls-Royce boss Torsten Müller-Ötvös told Autocar: “We have already had customers who own Ferraris come to us and place orders. They are not replacing their Ferraris, but they now see an alternative option, where they can travel quickly and with the ultimate luxury. That is very promising.”
