Rolls-Royce has just released the final teaser image of the upcoming Wraith, ahead of its official launch at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on March 5th, as well as confirming that it "will be a fastback".
The British carmaker also indicated that the Wraith will be the brand's most powerful and fastest model ever built. It is expected to feature a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine that produces 608 hp, which will make it 38 hp more powerful than the Ghost sedan.
Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Design Director explains:
"The purposeful fastback profile is Wraith’s defining element. Inherent in the graceful line that sweeps from the top of the screen to the very rear edge is the promise of fast, yet effortless touring. Yet, perhaps my favourite aspect is the expressive gesture that comes from the side window graphic, gliding through Wraith’s glamorous coach door."
"It works with a strong sense of linear purpose from the shoulder line, which has the promise of potential like the athlete in the starting blocks. In contrast, the line that cuts through the shoulder line is a little more artful and adds that certain air of effortlessness to Wraith’s dynamic statement. In my view the most successful designs always come down to three or four lines."
