Rolls-Royce will launch a convertible version of its brand-new Wraith coupe in "the next few years", according to new reports out of the UK this week.
Speaking with Auto Express, Rolls boss Torsten Muller-Otvos reportedly confirmed the coming of a Wraith Drophead model, while writing off rumours of a rival for Bentley's upcoming SUV.
“The design [of the Wraith] certainly lends itself to a drophead coupe, and I think that will be the next variant,” Muller-Otvos said.
Muller-Otvos was clear however that, for now at least, the prestige carmaker has no plans to take on the production version of Bentley's EXP 9 F concept.
“We have no plans to produce an SUV, definitely not, the next thing is drophead Wraith but bespoke orders are the priority,” Muller-Otvos said.
The Wraith, revealed in Geneva last month, is the carmaker's fastest-ever offering, driven by the familiar 465kW 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine.
Rolls reckons the big coupe will hit 100km/h in 4.6 seconds, bettering (if only slightly) the 4.7 second run listed with the 420kW Ghost saloon.
The Wraith is scheduled to launch in Australia later this year.
