Regulars here would know that we have reported in great detail about the BMW Group owned British luxury car maker Rolls Royce’s new 2 door coupe- the Wraith.
We have always known that the Wraith is headed to India and we recently posted spy pics of a 2014 Rolls Royce Wraith that was spotted in Delhi. Now, official word is out that the Wraith will be launched on August 19.
The new Rolls Royce Wraith is being touted as the most powerful and sporty Roller ever and we really have no intentions of challenging this claim. The new Wraith coupe is based on the Ghost luxury sedan, which in turn, is based on the BMW 7 Series flagship sedan. The Wraith is the only two door coupe in the British luxury carmaker’s product portfolio and is targeted at those who are in the market for a sporty yet classy two door coupe. The Rolls Royce Wraith is powered by a 6.6-litre Twin Turbo V12 engine that has max power output of 624bhp and a peak torque of 800Nm! The ‘sportiest-ever’ Roller can dismiss 100kmph from standstill in just 4.6 seconds. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which uses GPS data to preselect an appropriate gear ratio to deal with the upcoming road conditions (WoW!).
The interiors of the new Roller come with top notch materials that consist of richest of the leather (read: Phantom spec) and have been hand-crafted to perfection. The interior of the car is adorned with open pore wood named Canadel Panelling. Rolls Royce says that the interior of the new car has been inspired from that of an ultra-luxury yacht.
