Thanks ! That's a super looking profile. So this will take on the 'sporty' Bentleys ?

I'm not fond of that profile. Seriously? A fastback Roller? Fancy DC doing all that stuff, which I believe he has.

If Bentley can, Why not RR ?

IMO you are negative about the WRAITH because of this;

More teaser pics of the WRAITH surface up, this one form RR's recently updated FB cover page;

Some spy pics of the WRAITH undergoing testing;

Side profile somehow reminds me of the '68 Mustang Shelby GT;

Rolls-Royce says, the Wraith will be “the most dynamic, powerful, and beautiful car in the company’s history.”

IMO this car should reveal the darker, more unforgiving side of RR

Wraith draws inspiration from the story of the Honorable Charles Rolls, one of the company's founding forefathers and a man who indulged a passion for innovation, engineering and, most importantly, adventure. Rolls was a passionate racing driver, balloonist and aviator winning the praise of King George V, who hailed him the 'greatest hero of the day' on becoming the first person to cross the English Channel and return non-stop in a flying machine.

Like Rolls, the new car will embrace the very finest things in life - elegance, beauty, refinement and luxury - to be enjoyed by a new generation of confident gentlemen and women. It will boldly shape the future of Rolls-Royce, building on the success of Phantom and Ghost, targeting to bring new customers to the marque.

The WRAITH as is based on the GHOST will be 200mm shorter overall (at about 5200mm) with around 180mm lopped off the saloon’s (GHOST) 3295mm wheelbase. Kerb weight should be around 2300kg, roughly 200kg less than the standard GHOST saloon.

The roofline is 60-70mm lower than the GHOST, but the car is still higher than most and offers commanding seating.

RR engineers say drivers will also notice greater agility thanks to tauter suspension, bigger tyres, reduced weight and size and a chassis lowered by 10mm


Heres a render inspired from the GHOST of the WRAITH;

This teaser video with its horror movie theme doesn’t reveal anything, but ...



it does at least teach you how to pronounce the name properly

The RR showroom would be a spooky place to visit late at night with a horrifying line up of model names. This is one nightmare I'd dream to live!

Looking forward to Wraith. It seems like a start of a new direction by RR, a step in the younger and sportier appeal. Like they say, catch em young! With the growing number of young billionaires in the world, RR is opening up a new target market with the Wraith.

The Wraith would steal customers from the Aston Rapide, Bentley CGT speed, etc

What's it doing jumping up on a flat road?

IMO Rolls Royce is a Rolls Royce when it looks classic.

That photograph is taken at the famous Nürburgring circuit at a point called "Flugplatz" ("air" place or "airport" section). This is one point where many cars are photographed in "airborne" condition on the Nordschleife.

See more pics below (including the Wraith (pronounced as Wraisthzhs!)
