Rendered – Rolls Royce Wraith
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Come Geneva 2013, you will see a very different side of Rolls Royce. This brand, which stands of the epitome of luxury, will bring in a very exquisite product in the market.
In previous times, Rolls Royce models were bought by people who are elderly because to shell out that kind of money you needed to work all your life, and you had to reach an age to appreciate a Roller.
However, times have changed and most of the disposable income lies in the hands of young executives who are impatient and want to live it up today. So the British luxury brand needs to adapt to the changing requirements of its customer base.
They successfully launched the baby roller – Ghost – which is nothing but a dressed-up BMW 7 Series. Now, Rolls Royce is going one step further by introducing a sporty ‘coupe-like’ variant of its ‘budget’ model.
Named Rolls Royce Wraith, it features a fastback roofline and is the most powerful Rolls Royce ever made. Autobild.de presents us this unique rendering for a glimpse of the Wraith.
The new model is powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine producing 600 bhp. It is shorter than the donor car (the Ghost) by 180 mm. It is about 5,200 mm long and will weigh roughly 2,300 kg. Being light in weight and high on power (for a Rolls Royce), we can expect a blistering 0-100 kmph time.
The Wraith would be unveiled in the first week of March at the Geneva Motor Show.
