2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Video, First Look

The 2013 Geneva Motor Show was full of halo cars for several brands, as even Ferrari and McLaren showed off their most powerful vehicles yet. Yet another iconic brand debuting the most potent car it’s ever made was none other than Rolls-Royce.

With a unique fast-back design, the Wraith is a special looking vehicle and packs 624 hp and 590-lb-ft of torque thanks to a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. Although it’s based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost luxury sedan, the Wraith is decidedly more sporty, featuring a wider rear track, shorter wheelbase, and lower roof height.

The sporty Rolls also has several handling improvements as the vehicle’s suspension has been tuned to minimize body roll. Additionally steering weight is heavier at high speeds and lighter at low speeds, making the car easier to drive, despite its powerful engine and imposing size.

The Wraith also features new technology like a heads-up display, adaptive headlights, and keyless trunk control. The new Wraith also features a new satellite aided transmission, which will use GPS satellites to help select the right gear for the road ahead.
