The 2013 Geneva Motor Show was full of halo car for several brands, even McLaren and Ferrari showed off their most powerful vehicles yet. But there was another iconic brand debuting the most potent car it has every made and that was none other than Rolls-Royce.
The Wraith, with a unique fast-back design, is a special looking vehicle and packs 624 hp and 590-lb-ft of torque thanks to a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. Even though the Wraith was based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost luxury sedan, the Wraith is decidedly more sporty, featuring a wider rear track, shorter wheelbase, and lower roof height.
The Wraith also has several handling improvements as the vehicle’s suspension has been tuned to minimize body roll. To make the car easier to drive, despite its powerful engine and imposing size, additional steering weight is heavier at high speeds and lighter at low speeds. New technology like a heads-up display, adaptive headlights, and keyless trunk control are featured in the Wraith. Also the sporty Rolls features a new satellite aided transmission, which will use GPS satellites to help select the right gear for the road ahead.
