Last week, we learned that Rolls-Royce will come up with a coupe version of the Ghost called Wraith, an old name first used in 1938. Today, Goodwood published the first official image of its new model, which will be launched at the Geneva show in March. We’ve brightened the shadow part of the pic for a slightly better view – click to enlarge it.

“The graceful silhouette gives expression to a bold and thoroughly contemporary luxury motor car. Flowing lines hint at the extraordinary power and dynamic promise of the most powerful Rolls-Royce in history, yet also highlight design cues that can be traced through the model generations,” the press release reads.

“Rolls-Royce Wraith evokes the pioneering spirit and lust for adventure that drove company forefather the Honourable Charles Rolls – the consummate gentleman racer. But like Rolls, Wraith will also be steeped in the trappings of luxury and opulence,” it adds.

Rolls-Royce says the Wraith will be the most powerful R-R in history. For the record, the Ghost‘s 6.6 litre twin-turbocharged V12 makes 570 PS and 780 Nm of smooth torque.
