Rolls-Royce are fortunate enough to call Goodwood its home, therefore, when the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013 comes around, it only seems right that they put on a big display. The factory is located just across from the Goodwood circuit in West Sussex, England. While other manufacturers were struggling with transportation, for Rolls-Royce the distance is a stones-throw away.

Models enjoying the spotlight this year include the Rolls-Royce Ghost Alpine Centenary Edition which recently participated in the famous Alpine Rally. Accompanying it was its old mate the Silver Ghost which also participated in that same rally.

There was also a Rolls-Royce Ghost and the latest Rolls-Royce Wraith which is the most powerful Rolls-Royce car ever made. The luxury car 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.
