New Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe's Slow Strip Tease Continues

Here’s a new teaser image of Rolls-Royce’s high-performance, two-door version of the Ghost saloon, called Wraith. Previously, we saw a darkened rendering of the car’s profile, and now, the British company is sharing an image of the Wraith’s “muscular rear haunches” – those are Rolls-Royce’s precise words. So, what else did the BMW Group-owned luxury automaker have to say about the new Wraith? Well, aside from a couple of vague statements about the design of the car’s buttocks and the power hiding under the hood, and which we’ve added below, nothing else. “This image depicts Wraith’s muscular rear haunches – a visual cue that gives bold expression to Wraith’s promise of dynamism. A sense that this is a car set to move with purpose on its driver’s command,” said Rolls-Royce in a statement. “And so to the question of Power. In times gone by, when asked the question, Rolls-Royce would simply reply, ‘Adequate, Sir. However, for Wraith we feel it right to be a touch more explicit: ‘More than ample’,” the company added. What we know about the Wraith is that it rides on a shorter wheelbase version of the Ghost’s platform, shedding some pounds in the process, with power to come from a massaged 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 producing 600hp or possibly even more. The world premiere of the coupe model will take place at the Geneva Auto Salon on March 5, 2013.
