It’s a great time to be buying a luxury car, manufacturers unleashing an unprecedented product assault from the bottom to the top of the market. And at the upper end of the spectrum, even Rolls-Royce is getting into the game, the British marque announcing plans to introduce an all-new “open-top touring” model set to reach market about two years from now.
The BMW subsidiary isn’t saying much about what it has in store, but speculation is focusing on the lower end of its product range, the new convertible quite likely to be based on the Rolls Wraith, itself a spin-off of the maker’s Ghost line.
“I am truly delighted to confirm today the development of our new model which will open an exciting new chapter in the great story of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars,” proclaimed Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “We are currently developing an exciting and thoroughly contemporary interpretation of a pinnacle drophead tourer which will introduce even more discerning men and women to Rolls-Royce ownership.”
