At Genenva this year Rolls-Royce officially debuted its rakish, fastback the Wraith which is the most powerful model ever to roll out from the stables of the Goodwood based manufacturer

After a seemingly endless stream of teasers, Rolls-Royce finally un-wrapped its latest offering, the Wraith at Geneva. Touted as the most powerful Rolls-Royce, the Wraith is powered by a 6.6-litre, twin-turbo V-12 capable of pumping 632.5PS of power and an impressive 800Nm of torque to enable it to glide from 0-60mph in 4.4sec. The powerplant is mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

The Wraith is the first car to debut with Rolls-Royce’s Satellite Aided Transmission (SAT) technology. The SAT utilises GPS data to pre-select gears – based on location and driving style, selecting the most appropriate gear for the terrain that’s up ahead. According to Roll’s this technology has been designed to give the driver a more polished and effortless driving experience. 

 

The elegantly designed fastback suspension has been tuned to minimise body roll whereas the steering has been set in such a manner that it gets heavier as speed increases and lighter at low speeds. The Wraith is 130mm shorter than the Ghost, and its wheelbase has been tightened by 183mm whereas it’s also 40mm wider and 43mm lower giving it a solid stance and improved handling.
