Rolls-Royce has just announced about the upcoming introduction of the most powerful the company ever at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, called the Wraith. The launch will revive one of the most famous Rolls-Royce names first used in 1938.
"Rolls-Royce Wraith will draw superlatives when it is unveiled in Geneva," Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös explained to representatives of the 100-strong global dealer network. "Expect the boldest design, the most dramatic performance and the most powerful Rolls-Royce that has ever played host to the famous Spirit of Ecstasy figurine. We will present a model whose starting point is luxury, refinement and exclusivity, traits that have made Rolls-Royce the world’s pinnacle luxury good for the last 108 years. This is a car not only defined by a timeless elegance, but one that encapsulates a sense of power, style and drama."
Essentially a Ghost coupe, the Wraith will probably be powered by the same 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that develops about 608 hp. This allows the 2,300 kg car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 4.7 seconds.
First deliveries to customers are expected in the fourth quarter of the year.
