The Rolls Royce Wraith is the fastest, most powerful car Rolls Royce has ever created. Under the hood is the same 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12 as the Ghost, but power has been boosted from 563 hp at 5250 rpm to a healthy 624 hp at 5600 rpm, and torque increases from 575 lb-ft to 590. With more power and torque, the Wraith hits 60 mph in about 4.1 seconds, and runs the quarter mile in about 12.5 seconds. Another amazing feature the Wraith has is the Satellite aided transmission, which sees the road ahead that you can’t, and shifts the car’s gears properly just as a professional driver would. The Wraith never tries too hard to be a sports car. It is a gentleman’s touring car in the truest sense of the term. From the classic Rolls Royce grill with the signature Spirit of Ecstasy flying at the helm of the Wraith, to the tuned up engine that does sound much more sports car like than what we are used to from Rolls Royce, this car is a car meant for a man who is making moves in life.
Recently the Rolls-Royce Wraith Launch Film has been awarded a Gold Award at the 26th International Visual Communications Association (IVCA) Awards in London this year. The film, entitled ‘And the World Stood Still’, introduces Wraith as the most powerful and technologically-advanced Rolls-Royce in history. Filmed at a secret location near Barcelona, the shoot included a ‘Timeslice’ (frozen time) sequence created using 100 cameras, the longest purpose-built SLR camera rig in Europe, an award-winning film director, 36 computers, 1.5km of cables and one prototype Rolls-Royce Wraith. A ‘behind the scenes’ film was also launched after the Company was inundated with requests from fans across social media networks worldwide. The almost haunted mist seen throughout the short film relays the combination of the visible ideological juxtaposition inside the Wraith. The glamorous mystique of the Rolls-Royce brand mixed with the powerful V-12 placed in a chassis where it can really show you what it is made of. Everything inside, outside and about this vehicle is made from the finest materials on the globe, and every piece of the car was built and put together by hand. There is no mistaking this car for anything but a masterpiece. It is a chariot fit for kings.
