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.


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.
