This is the highly anticipated and awaited coupe version of the Ghost sedan which Rolls Royce is calling Wraith. Compared to the model it is based on, the new variant is 43mm lower, 40mm wider and 130mm shorter, while its wheelbase has shrunk by 183mm.
The luxurious interior cabin has a four-seat layout and is adorned by elegant wood trim, metallic accents, upscale leather upholstery and a beautiful starlight headliner.
Under the hood is a huge and powerful V12 engine pumping out 624 hp (465 kW) and 799 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque linked to an 8-speed automatic gearbox sending the high-end coupe to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 4.4 seconds. Rolls-Royce’s engineers stiffened the car’s suspension and updated the steering system.
Set to go on sale sometime this fall, the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith will have a steep starting price in the United Kingdom of 215,000 pounds.
