We’ve known that Rolls-Royce has been working on a coupe version of the Ghost for quite some time now, as it’s been spy photographer on test before. Today we find out that Rolls-Royce has decided to revive the name Wraith for the new coupe, and it will make its public debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March this year. The Wraith name was first used in 1938.
Rolls-Royce says the new Rolls-Royce Wraith will be the most powerful Rolls-Royce in history. The 6.6 litre twin-turbocharged V12 in the Ghost is already one of the most powerful BMW Group engines around, producing 570 PS and 780Nm of torque – will the Wraith take this engine even higher up the power scales?
I don’t think that would be an issue at all – the current tune doesn’t even touch 100 PS per litre, so there’s plenty of potential. Will we see at least 660 PS in the new Rolls-Royce Wraith?
