Rolls Considering SUV, Convertible?


Rumors from parent company BMW's home country suggest a handful of new Rolls-Royces are on the drawing board.

Rumors abound of a Rolls-Royce product expansion. The auto marque whose lineup previously centered exclusively around the Phantom has since expanded to include the Ghost and the Wraith coupe based upon it, but rumors persist that the Goodwood marque is planning a few more. Two months ago we brought you a report that Rolls was planning a new V16 roadster to serve as a halo model and stick it to rivals Bentley and Bugatti, but now there are further reports of new Rolls-Royces under consideration.

One rumor that persists is that of a Rolls-Royce SUV. Auto Bild, the car magazine that serves the same German market where RR parent company BMW is based, says the high-riding Roller could be based on the next BMW X5 and arrive by 2016 as the first all-wheel-drive Rolls-Royce in the company’s long history. But Auto Bild also reports that Rolls is considering a convertible version of the Wraith as well. Whether this emerges to be the same program as the aforementioned V16 roadster or another model entirely, however, remains to be seen.
