The latest and greatest from British luxury automaker Rolls-Royce, the Wraith, has just been leaked onto the web before it debuts tomorrow at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. 

The Wraith is essentially a coupe version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost, though it features its own fastback style. Under the hood is a V12 engine that makes 624 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, giving the Wraith a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, according to AutoCar. That engine will be mated to an eight-speed ZF transmission.

It is supposed to be the most dynamic car to ever be built by Rolls, and features stiffened suspension and new steering weighting meant to provide the driver with maximum levels of feedback by getting lighter at low speeds and heavier at high speeds. The Wraith has been made shorter and narrower than the Ghost, which will also help with driving feel.

Technology put to use in the Wraith includes a GPS-based transmission, which will pre-select gears based on the roads ahead, new voice-command controls, and a starlight headliner that uses 1340 tiny lights in the headliner to replicate the appearance of the night sky.
