The Rolls-Royce Wraith GT coupe is based of the Rolls-Royce Ghost sedan. The British car maker claims this is the most powerful and dynamic Rolls ever. The Wraith promises the sense of speed, high quality and effortless driving experience.
The heart of the Wraith is a 624-bhp V12 engine pumping out 590 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain is teamed with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and a new Satellite Aided Transmission technology that works with GPS to pre-select the right gear.
The latest Rolls-Royce accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds.
Compared to the Ghost, the new Rolls-Royce flagship features a wider rear track, shorter wheelbase and lower roof. The exterior is highlighted by elegant lines, bold style of the panels and a raked rear screen, deeply recessed grille and wide rear track.
Drivers of theRolls-Royce Wraith are able to rely on innovative navigation and infotainment systems as well as voice commands from an on-board valet.
Inside, the Wraith is decorated with a new Canadel Panellng wood elements. This yacht-like interior accentuates car`s character defined by power, luxury, refinement and drama. 1,340 fibre optic lamps are hand-woven into the roof to evoke the image of a starry night sky.
The world premiere of the Rolls-Royce Wraith was at 2013 Geneva motor show. The Rolls-Royce motor car plans to offer the Wraith to car collectors and buyers at the end of 2013 at a price of €245 000.
