Rolls-Royce to produce new open-top car from Sussex headquaters

First published in News

Rolls-Royce is to produce a new open-top car.

The company has begun work on the new project at their Goodwood headquarters and expect the model to go on sale by mid-2016.

Rolls said the new car will build on the success of the company's Phantom, Ghost and Wraith models.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars chief executive, Torsten Muller-Otvos, said the announcement of the new car opened "an exciting new chapter" in the company's history.

He said: "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."

More details of the car are expected over the coming months, with the new model likely to cost well over £200,000.

The announcement has come shortly after publication of Rolls-Royce figures which showed the BMW-owned company sold a record 1,968 cars in the period January to June - a 33% rise on the same period last year.

Man of steel says...

For all of you that may be puzzled as to the word "Quater" it is Latin for four, and used in prescriptions, so I suppose that either Sussex or Rolls Royce has four heads.
