Rolls-Royce confirms new convertible

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has today confirmed a new model is to be built at the company’s manufacturing plant at Goodwood. The new car, a two-door, four-seat convertible, is expected to be unveiled in 2007.

Codenamed RR02, the new model will be based on the same engineering principles as the Phantom and built using similar aluminium space-frame chassis technology. Its design is inspired by the Rolls-Royce Centenary experimental car, named 100EX, which was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March – although it will be slightly smaller. Power will come from a 6.75 litre, V12 engine, which the new model will share with the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The new Convertible will be the second Rolls-Royce model to be hand-built at the company’s Goodwood head office and manufacturing plant.
