Rolls Royce Wraith to cast a spell on India next month?
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The Rolls Royce Wraith, the coupe version of the Ghost, is preparing itself to invade India.
Overdrive.in reports that the Wraith will be launched in India next month marking the beginning of the festive season of 2013. The handmade British luxury liner slots between the Ghost and the Phantom.
The Wraith which made its public debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show is the fastest and the most dynamic Roller in history. The car is powered by a 6.6-litre V12 engine that pumps out a massive 625PS of power and 800 Nm of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission harnesses all that power. The 2.4 tonne leviathan accelerates from 0-100kph in just 4.6 seconds.
In a quintessential Rolls Royce manner, every car will get a bespoke handcrafted interior made using the finest of materials know to the car-making mankind. Everything about the car oozes class, luxury and exclusivity.

The Wraith is not just about pure luxury as it packs in a brilliant piece of engineering in the form of its gearbox. The transmission works hand in hand with the GPS system and predicts gearshifts based on the traffic and road conditions!
The Rolls Royce Wraith is expected to carry a price tag of over Rs. 4 crore in India, thanks to the weakening Rupee.
