Rolls-Royce wouldn't deign to cover one of its mules with something so gauche as anti-spy cladding. The grandest of dropheads was snapped cold-weather testing in the Bavarian Hinterlands in full view of the autorazzi (a decidedly appropriate move for a design conceived in California). Sans cover-up, it's quite clear that the greenlighted convertible maintains the lion's share of the presence exhibited by 2004's 100EX Geneva Motor Show star.

The prototype (snagged here by a Motor Trend photog) reveals a slightly different rear-end than the original, but the nose appears to mimic the concept faithfully (save those nasty temporary headlamp mockups), and the concept's charismatic suicide doors appear to have made the cut.  The interior will no doubt be a predictable embarrassment of leather and wood-slathered riches. The Cabriolet is set to be produced adjacent to the Phantom at the firm's Goodwood facility in the UK. As is the way with every Roller, if you have to ask 'How much?'...
