Next teaser in a week

Rolls-Royce has released another teaser with the Wraith (Ghost Coupe) which will be followed by two more on February 19 and 26.

In this new teaser we catch a glimpse at the Wraith's "muscular rear haunches" as Rolls-Royce has characterized the design. As previously mentioned, it will be the most powerful model ever launched by the British luxury brand and promises to bring "the most dramatic performance" and "the boldest design."

Riding on a shorter wheelbase version of the Ghost's platform, the coupe version will probably be powered by the same twin-turbo, 6.6-liter V12 engine with an output estimated at around 608 HP (447 kW) as opposed to the sedan where it churns 570 HP (420 kW).

Thanks to this powerful engine, the Wraith should complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in less than 4.7 seconds despite the estimated 5,070 lbs (2,300 kg) curb weight.

An official unveiling is set for March 5 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today publishes the second image of its next model, Wraith, a hand-built motor car that exudes hallmark Rolls-Royce luxury and comfort whilst possessing a character defined by Power, Style and Drama.

For 108 years, effortless power delivery has been inherent to the Rolls-Royce brand promise. This image depicts Wraith’s muscular rear haunches – a visual cue that gives bold expression to Wraith’s promise of dynamism. A sense that this is a car set to move with purpose on its driver’s command.

And so to the question of Power. In times gone by, when asked the question, Rolls-Royce would simply reply, “Adequate, Sir”. However, for Wraith we feel it right to be a touch more explicit:

“More than ample.”

All will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 March 2013.

So I wasn't the only one who saw the resemblance. I'm sure the Rolls is a much better car.

Clearly: Ford/Lincoln could get away with this design and even be praised. But not BMW oops meant RR of course! ;-)
