Just as the Phantom has coupe and convertible variants, the latter dubbed a Drophead Coupe, Automedia reports that Rolls-Royce will launch similar two-door versions of its smaller Ghost sedan.

The first, a Ghost coupe, has already been launched in the form of the Wraith and the next model to be launched will be a Ghost convertible which will likely be called the Wraith Drophead Coupe.

The automaker say the new coupe will have cues from the existing Phantom Drophead and will be targeted at "younger buyers" as the Wraith, Rolls-Royce says, reportedly lured new buyers to the brand.

The Wraith’s convertible roof will be a folding soft-top, much like the BMW 6 Series, with which it shares a platform. Powering the car should be the same 469kW, twin-turbo, 6.6-litre V12 found in the Wraith coupe.

The car is scheduled to debut later in 2015 and the automaker states pricing should start from the equivalent of R3.7-million.
