The new Rolls-Royce Wraith has been captured on British roads undergoing pre-production development ahead of its release in autumn. This is the first time a Rolls Royce has been adorned with the Wraith badge since 1939. The new Wraith is based on the Ghost saloon but it is shorter and lower giving the car a more dynamic feel. With the wide rear-track and sweeping body Rolls-Royce are hinting that they are trying to attract a younger clientele.
The Wraith’s engine is also the most powerful Rolls-Royce have ever built. The 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 fitted in the Wraith pumps out a whopping 624bhp and 590lb ft of torque propelling the Wraith to 62mph in just 4.4 seconds. The 8 speed ZF transmission is connected to a GPS device which scans the road ahead allowing the appropriate gear to be selected for the upcoming terrain.
The interior is as luxurious as you’d expect, the headlining is fitted with 1,340 fibre-optic lamps mimicking a starry night sky, the suicide doors, leather and lashing of real wood make sure all for passengers are sitting comfortably in the lap of luxury.
With prices starting at around £212,000 before any options are added it falls somewhere in between the Ghost and the Phantom.
Deliveries will begin in autumn this year.
