The British carmaker has confirmed development is underway on the new model, and that it will arrive some time in 2016. Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos confirmed the news in a statement, saying,

“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”.

Meanwhile, Peter Schwarzenbauer, Rolls-Royce chairman, said the announcement of a new Rolls-Royce is always a seminal moment in the auto industry.

It’s set to showcase a stunning design, as ever, with bold contours, and “contemporary, graceful and sensuous styling” cues. It will also provide the perfect marriage of “modern Rolls-Royce luxury, style, and elegance” with an exhilarating drive experience, according to the company.

Power is expected to come from a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 producing 465kW and a monstrous 800Nm of torque. This should enable acceleration from 0-100km/h to occur in under 5.0 seconds.
