If you're looking for a top-of-the-line convertible, you're choices are essentially limited to the Rolls-Royce Phantom DropHead Coupe or the Bentley Azure. But even that's about to change as Bentley is canceling the Azure. The question is, what will replace it?
The Azure – based on a twelve-year-old platform – is being phased out as the company puts its energy into the new Mulsanne limousine. Rumor has it that a new convertible version is planned, but in a particularly intriguing twist, the next Azure could gain a couple of doors and revive the long-lost four-door convertible segment. These vehicles, once known as "parade cars", were at the pinnacle of luxury, and if Bentley brings it back – as Mercedes recently entertained with the Ocean Drive concept – we could be looking at a new level of open-air motoring.
