Automobile powerhouse Rolls-Royce will be launching its most powerful and dynamic car yet – the Rolls-Royce Wraith. Scheduled to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, the Rolls-Royce Wraith has already created a flurry of excitement amongst car enthusiasts and the media alike. Using the Wraith name for the first time since 1959 when the Silver Wraith ceased production, Rolls-Royce Wraith is poised to be the car maker’s showstopper and is expected to be a coupe version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The Wraith is targeted towards competitor cars like the Bentley Continental, the Mercedes-Benz CL Class and even the Aston Martin DB9. Turbocharged by the Ghost’s 6.6 litre V12, the Wraith will boast around 600 horsepower. That’s quite an increase when compared to the Ghost’s current 563 horsepower!
CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said: “Rolls-Royce Wraith will draw superlatives when it is unveiled in Geneva. Expect the boldest design, the most dramatic performance and the most powerful Rolls-Royce that has ever played host to the famous Spirit of Ecstasy figurine.”
The details surrounding the Rolls-Royce Wraith are highly guarded with no pictures being released of the automobile in production. However, sources have spotted prototypes of a large coupe with hallmark Rolls-Royce features being tested across Europe for the past few months.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith is expected to feature a heftier price tag than the Rolls-Royce Ghost which starts at £170,250. The new model will be delivered to customers by the end of the year.
