Unveiled in 2013, Rolls-Royce Wraith is a 4-seat coupe that combines the finest traditional craftsmanship and the modern technology. So far, the British automobile manufacturer has produced three models of this luxury car. The carmaker is expected to come up with more models in the near future.
Rolls-Royce Wraith – Exterior and Interior Design
The new Wraith will be built on the BMW F01 platform. It will borrow a lot of exterior features from the Dawn and Ghost. The car will look more elegant and sportier than these two models. Its entire exterior will feature beautiful chrome fittings and a classic blue color with few white lines.
The Rolls-Royce rectangular grille will find its way in the front end of the latest Rolls-Royce Wraith. The grille is flanked by larger, well-positioned headlights, and below it, more air intakes have been added. The sides look smooth with few brushed overtures and doorway handles. The rear end looks prominent with an enormous bumper and large taillights.
Machined metal elements, finely crafted woods and soft leather will be some of the major highlights in the interior of Rolls-Royce Wraith. The entire cabin will look spectacular with arctic white and navy blue colors. The seats will be more comfortable with headrests and adjusting mechanisms. As for space, we are anticipating for a roomy cabin that will offer great comfort to your head, legs and other parts of your body.
Driving the upcoming Wraith will be an enjoyable task. There will be a myriad of technological features to keep you informed and entertained throughout your journeys. A display screen surrounded by all sorts of controls will provide you with vital driving information. Other tech features expected in the Rolls-Royce car include a navigation system, climate control, and audio system.
The upcoming Rolls-Royce Wraith will not disappoint its users as far as safety and security are concerned. You can expect it to come with protection features such as airbags, adaptive cruise control, parking assist, blind-spot monitors, keyless entry and lane keep assist, among others.
Rolls-Royce Wraith – Engine and Performance
According to the carmaker, the upcoming Wraith will come with one engine option. This will be a 6.6-liter V12 engine with a capacity of 624 hp and 590 lb-ft. An 8-speed computerized ZF gearbox will be offered to back the engines and provide for a rear-wheel drive.
The car will take 4.4 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph. The top speed is estimated at 155 mph.
