NEXT ROLLS TO HAUNT THE ROADS: The Rolls-Royce Wraith Drophead Coupe will make its debut in 2015. Image: Automedia

Just as the Phantom has coupe and convertible variants, the latter dubbed the Drophead Coupe, it's natural Rolls-Royce would launch similar two-door versions of its Ghost sedan.

The first of these, a Ghost coupe, has been launched in the form of the 2014 Wraith.

Spy photographers spotted a Ghost  convertible likely to be labelled a Wraith Drophead Coupe.

LURE NEW BUYERS

It will reportedly borrow design cues from the Phantom Drophead Coupe and according to the automaker, will “be targeted at younger buyers who may never have considered a Rolls-Royce.”

The Wraith is said to have lured new buyers to the brand.

Expect the Wraith's convertible roof to be a folding soft-top, as is its BMW 6 Series platform-mate.

Powering the car should be the same 465kW twin-turbo 6.6 V12 used in the Wraith coupe. Pricing should start well above the Wraith’s R4-million.
