Rolls-Royce has officially confirmed the development program for the Wraith Drophead Coupe.

Scheduled for a debut somewhere in mid-2016, the vehicle will become the sixth member of RR’s lineup. The manufacturer says the car will “boldly shape the future of the marque with contemporary, graceful and sensuous styling. It will deliver effortless, open-top touring through the perfect marriage of modern Rolls-Royce luxury, style and elegance with an engaging and exhilarating driving experience”.

Peter Schwarzenbauer, Chairman of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, comments that “the announcement of a new Rolls-Royce model is always a seminal moment in the automobile industry”. The Wraith Drophead Coupe is currently “undergoing a rigorous process of prototype testing as it enters its next stage of development”.

As reported before, the vehicle will probably be powered by a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine that develops 632 PS (465 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. We could expect a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 4.6 seconds and a starting price tag of about 250,000 GBP ($422,000).
