The Rolls-Royce Wraith is the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever made. There is definitely nothing else like it. Even during its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2013, one could feel the sense of hard work put into building it. Philip Harnett the Product Manager of the Rolls-Royce Wraith has taken the Wraith for a spin and explained it further.
One of the most exhilarating things mentioned by Philip in his drive is the ability of the Wraith to see around corners ahead even before you approach them. This is achieved through the use of the GPS that uses satellite navigation to foresee the road pattern ahead. Long are the days when you had to risk or approach corners blind.
The Wraith went through the harshest testing conditions before coming to full birth, Death Valley to test under hot conditions, Nurburgring to test its track handling capabilities and Sweden to test under the harshest cold weather.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith develops 624bhp and 800Nm of torque from a 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 with direct petrol injection. This makes it the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever! This means the Wraith will hit 62mph in just 4.6 seconds and go on to an electronically governed top speed of 155mph. The power is routed through an eight speed, automatic ZF transmission to the rear wheels.
