The Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe is just over a year old, revealed at the Geneva Motor Show last year. A few months after, Rolls Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos confirmed that a Wraith convertible was in the works and that it would launch in 2015. That is the car which has been caught testing near BMW's headquarters in Munich.
The heavy camouflage might indicate an upcoming face-lift to the Wraith coupe as well
Even though the car is under heavy camouflage, one can notice the conventional Wraith styling cues, especially the gently sloping roof line and the redesigned roof despite the plastic rear windshield on this test mule. As you can imagine, the convertible will be almost identical to the Wraith coupe with the exception of the fixed roof. The car will use the same twin-turbo 6.6 litre V12 that develops 632PS and 800Nm of torque sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Though it is a convertible, the sloping roof-line is maintained really well
The Wraith will most likelyget the 'Drophead' moniker which is passed down from its bigger cousin, the Phantom Drophead Coupe. Otherwise, the car might get its own bespoke name. We can expect to see the car launch sometime next year.
The Wraith soft-top will compete with the Bentley Continental GT and the upcoming Mercedes Benz S-Class Cabriolet. However, it will be significantly more expensive than both with a price tag set to be around Rs 4.7 to 5 crores ex-shrowroom.
