Spotted: Rolls-Royce Wraith
Rolls-Royce is currently testing what will be its most powerful model ever. It’s set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show this March. Only yesterday we reported that Rolls-Royce will debut an all-new model at the Geneva Motor Show this March.
Set to be the most powerful model in its history, the Wraith will be a coupe and, according to the British carmaker, the sportiest and best-handling Rolls model ever.
Today we bring you some fresh spy shots of a test mule caught testing near the Arctic Circle. The British automaker has also taken Wraith prototypes to the famed Nurburgring to make sure that its handling is at the level it should be.
Power will likely come from a turbocharged V12 that could deliver as much as 600 horsepower and will be mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic that’ll send all that power to the rear wheels.
Just as we received these latest spy shots, Rolls-Royce released a teaser profile image of the Wraith. While it doesn’t provide any clear styling clues, the automaker says that its design cues can be traced through the model generations.
