14.02.2013 - Motorauthority Rolls-Royce Releases Second Photo Of 2014 Wraith Coupe
In the lead up to the reveal of the new 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith at next month’s 2013 Geneva Motor Show, a second teaser shot of the car has been released, revealing its rear-end styling.
The first teaser showed the car’s profile, confirming that the Wraith is in fact the long-awaited Ghost coupe seen testing in prototype form for the past several months and reported on for more than a year.
Unlike the current Phantom Coupe, which features a boxy profile similar to that of the sedan on which it’s based, the new Wraith gets a fastback look that’s very sporting and sleek.
The bold new styling hints at the extraordinary power and dynamic promise of the Wraith, which Rolls-Royce has already confirmed will be the fastest and most powerful model ever launched by the marque.
Power is expected to come from the Ghost’s twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12 engine, which in its latest application may be tuned to deliver more than 600 horsepower. Rolls-Royce describes the output as “more than ample.”
In addition to extra power, the Wraith will also benefit from a lighter chassis, stiffened suspension, and uprated brakes and tires. Sales of the new Rolls-Royce Wraith will commence in the fourth quarter of the year, and it’s almost certain a convertible version will follow the coupe.
