Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has released the third official image of its new model Wraith. Wraith, which will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 5, 2013, features a luxurious, contemporary interior that complements the dynamic looks of its exterior styling. Wraith combines luxury and hand-craftsmanship, as evidenced by the softest ‘Phantom-grade’ leathers and expanses of open pore wood named Canadel Panelling.
The vehicle’s contemporary finish showcases an interior space almost similar to that of an ultra-luxury yacht. The horseshoe sweep of Wraith’s cabin mirrors the cove at Le Canadel in Southern France where Sir Henry Royce and his design team spent their winters.
Rolls-Royce made sure that every possible interior detail is regarded and beautifully executed. For instance, the clock has Blood Orange needle tips that point to the car’s dynamic potential, while paying tribute to Rolls-Royce aviation heritage.
Like every Rolls-Royce model, Wraith is entirely hand-made. Wraith is a strong evidence of the skill of craftsmen and women at Rolls-Royce.
Giles Taylor, Design Director at Rolls-Royce, remarked that the Wraith's defining element is its purposeful fastback profile, which exposes a graceful line sweeping from the top of the screen to the edge of the rear.
Even at a glimpse, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith is a true picture of elegance and sportiness. Its bold fastback design perfectly conveys its energetic and dramatic yet much refined power – just like how the appearance of world-class athletes exudes how sporty they could be. Its overall design is both elegant and stylish, achieved through effortless simplicity. Thanks to its high waistline, low roof line and raked cabin, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith looks ready to sprint anytime as needed.
When on the road, it is pretty easy to tell that the new Wraith belongs to the same pedigree as the current Phantom and Ghost models. However, the latest version of the Wraith features a number of design cues found in the previous generations like its elegant coach doors, accentuated rear overhang and the Spirit of Ecstasy on the grille.
Differentiating the latest iteration of the new Rolls-Royce Wraith from the previous models as well as from other Rolls-Royce vehicles are elements like longer bonnet, deeply recessed pantheon grille, raked glass house and wider rear track.
