Rolls-Royce has confirmed that its newest model, the Wraith, will be a fastback and will make its public debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The British automaker has also released its final teaser image for the Wraith, which illustrates the three lines that underscore the car’s profile. By referring to the Wraith as a fastback, Rolls-Royce is essentially confirming that it’ll be a performance-minded model.

The Wraith should be a formidable competitor to the Bentley Continental GT Speed models, with power coming from the 6.6-liter V12 found in the Ghost. It is expected to have over 600 hp in order to compete with the GT Speed.

“The purposeful fastback profile is Wraith’s defining element,” said Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Design Director. “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.”
