Rolls Royce has recently revealed its new Wraith at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Wraith is essentially a Ghost Coupé and it features a familiar front end that flows into a fastback roof that tapers to the rear end. Overall, the Wraith is 130mm shorter, 40mm wider and 43mm lower than the Ghost, while the wheelbase has been reduced by 183mm.
The cabin is very recognisable as well, adopting a four-seat layout with wraparound wood trim, premium leather upholstery, metallic accents and a starlight headliner.
Under its bonnet is a V12 engine that develops 465kW and 799Nm, which should be more than enough. It is fitted to an eight-speed automatic transmission that is rumoured to use GPS data to determine if the car is in the correct gear. With 465kW on tap, 0-100 should take just 4.4 seconds.
Rolls Royce has also been working on the handling and its engineers have stiffened the suspension a little and added a revised steering system. While it certainly won’t perform like a sports car, it didn’t look bad when it was recently tested at the Nordschleife.
