Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead Coupe Confirmed For 2015
Wondering how to arrive at your big day? Well, you can soon travel in style in the new Wraith Coupe from Rolls-Royce.
Rolls-Royce is developing a convertible version of its all-new Wraith coupe and will go into production in 2015. Speaking with media at the UK launch of the Wraith, held fittingly at the Harrods luxury department store Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös strongly suggested that that a Wraith Drophead Coupe was in the pipeline.
“The design certainly lends itself to a drophead coupe, and I think that will be the next variant,” Müller-Ötvös revealed to Auto Express.
Unfortunately, he went on to say that producing another Wraith variant could take “some time.” One variant that we definitely won’t be seeing, however, is an SUV. Müller-Ötvös confirmed that there were no plans for a Rolls-Royce SUV despite some rumors to the contrary.
Finally, the Rolls-Royce CEO mentioned some of his company’s plans for the next-generation Phantom flagship sedan. He said that a plug-in hybrid was definitely the way to go with such a car, as some city centers, particularly in Europe, may have restrictions on the use of non-electrified vehicles when the model is finally launched. As previously reported, Rolls-Royce ruled out an all-electric Phantom because of range concerns, saying plug-in was a better option.
