Will be a fastback

Rolls-Royce is putting an end to the teasing game as they've released one last teaser photo with the upcoming Wraith.

They also revealed it will be a fastback for the very few who imagined it will be something else. Set to be revealed on March 5th, Wraith will be Rolls-Royce's most powerful and fastest model ever, despite an estimated weight of 5,070 lbs (2,300 kg). It will perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in less than 4.7 seconds.

This will be possible thanks to a twin-turbo V12 6.6-liter engine producing 608 HP (447 kW) which will make it 38 HP (28 kW) more powerful than the engine inside the Ghost sedan. We will have exact numbers next week when the car debuts at the Geneva Motor Show.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today confirms that its new model Wraith will be a fastback, and has issued the final image, in the series of teaser images, before Wraith’s launch in Geneva. This illustrates the three lines that underscore the car’s striking profile.

Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Design Director explains:

“The purposeful fastback profile is Wraith’s defining element.

“Inherent in the graceful line that sweeps from the top of the screen to the very rear edge is the promise of fast, yet effortless touring. Yet, perhaps my favourite aspect is the expressive gesture that comes from the side window graphic, gliding through Wraith’s glamorous coach door.

“It works with a strong sense of linear purpose from the shoulder line, which has the promise of potential like the athlete in the starting blocks. In contrast, the line that cuts through the shoulder line is a little more artful and adds that certain air of effortlessness to Wraith’s dynamic statement.

“In my view the most successful designs always come down to three or four lines.”

A wraith alright. From a design point of view, more scary then anything Hollywood could dream up.

This would have been the perfect car to use that V16 engine.
