Rolls Royce Wraith (2014)
Vehicle descriptionIntroduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and launched early in 2014, the Wraith is a four seater, two door Coupe, based on the chassis of the Rolls-Royce Ghost. There have been plenty of Phantom-based and Ghost-based derivatives, of course. But the Wraith is a true ground-breaker not only the most powerful car in Rolls history but also the closest thing to a sports car that it has ever attempted to produce.
Wraith was first used on a Rolls-Royce in 1938, but the company's cars were making a name for themselves as world-beating racing machines decades earlier.
The Wraith is fitted with the new ZF 8 speed gearbox, which broke new technological ground at the time as it had the ability to read the road ahead and select lower ratios for hills and steep bends. The 6.6 litre, twin turbo engine has an output of 623bhp, which is 'more than adequate' for 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 186mph. It is, in fact, the most powerful Rolls-Royce of all time.
