The most powerful Rolls-Royce ever is here. After teasing us with crafty and artistic images of the Wraith, Rolls-Royce has now officially revealed the details, along with a bevy of beautiful images.
"Today we launch the ultimate gentlemen's gran turismo, a car that embodies the spirit of Charles Stewart Rolls," commented Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "The most powerful Rolls-Royce in history, Wraith promises the sense of adventure and speed that drove our founding forefather. But of course, Wraith's starting point is luxury, refinement and quality, traits that remain as important to Rolls-Royce customers today as they were more than a century ago."
A Starry Night
Besides the sumptuous interior done in Phantom grade leathers and expensive wood, the Wraith has a roof that is filled with 1,340 optic lamps, which promise to make you forget you are in a car, by giving the impression of a starry night sky.
A Rolls-Royce has always symbolised luxury and royalty, but what about power. The Wraith is no slouch in this case. It is powered by a V12 engine with 624 BHP and 800 Nm of torque.
An 8 speed automatic ZF transmission reins in all that power and transfers it to the rear wheels.
The Wraith weighs 2,360 kilos, but the power produced is enough to take it from 0 to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds. Top speed has not been announced yet.
Adaptive suspension system
About the suspension Rolls-Royce says, it has "been tuned to minimise body roll and discreetly amplify feedback when cornering; while steering weight is heavier at high speeds and lighter at low speeds adding to the spirited drive."
Satellite Aided Transmission
Debuting for the first time, this revolutionary technology uses GPS to look ahead of the driver and anticipate road conditions and driving style for unprecedented driving comfort.
Rolls Royce Wraith is the epitome of luxury and comfort when it comes to automobiles and will be...till the next Rolls Royce comes out. More details will be announced in the coming days.
