Rolls-Royce line-up - Phantom, Ghost and Wraith

Following the success of their Phantom, Ghost and Wraith models, Rolls-Royce announced Tuesday (August 5) that it’s begun development for a new model scheduled to hit the market in 2016.

“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,” brand CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said in a statement. “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.”

The as-yet-titled car is currently undergoing prototype testing as it enters its next stage of development.

Further details were unknown at press time.
