Rolls-Royce Wraith now available in Forza Motorsport 5 as a free download

Article by Christian A., on August 12, 2014

Rolls-Royce officially announced today that its brand new Wraith Coupe is now available to all the owners of Forza Motorsport 5 as a free download. The British coupe arrives on the Xbox One with a Bespoke Starlight Headliner that consists of over 1,340 fiber optic lamps.

For those who don’t know, the Rolls-Royce Wraith carries a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that develops 624 bhp, bolted to an 8-speed Satellite Aided Transmission, the latest technology that links the gearbox to GPS data in order to ensure the vehicle will always be in the correct gear.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds (60 mph in 4.4 seconds).

Marc Mielau, General Manager Marketing, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commented, “We are delighted to mark a first in video game history by introducing Wraith, the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever made, into Forza Motorsport 5. The game will provide players with a new level of excitement by exploring the iconic features of Wraith. We are proud to present this compelling combination of refined super-luxury and poised dynamism in such a new and immersive way.”

The Rolls-Royce Wraith’s design offers a tour de force of simple elegance, projecting poise and a suggestion of vitality. There is a feeling that this vehicle is set to run purposefully on the driver's demand.

Elegance and loveliness describe the outer presentation. The sweeping fastback lines, a styling with origins found in automotive designs from the 1930s, most distinctly indicate its focused character, gently hinting at the past.

Performance balances the exterior design drama. A shortened wheelbase, broader rear track, 624 bhp / 465kW from the twin turbo V12, and a time from 0 to 60 of 4.4 seconds (0-62, 4.6 seconds) provide an illustration of the vehicle's vibrant appearance.

But Wraith is not a bruiser like a GT; every inch of it is sophisticated and lavish, a vehicle that creates the emotion of arrival and pleasure of the travel and is as vital as the foundation on which it is constructed.

Easy performance, luxury interior

Wraith introduces the smartest drivetrain to ever feature in a Rolls-Royce, which includes applying innovative technologies such as Satellite-Aided Transmission (SAT). This takes in GPS information and predicts the driver's next step, automatically selecting the correct gear for the path ahead.

Superfluous gear shifts are then avoided, enhancing the renowned Rolls-Royce “waftability” characteristic and guaranteeing the Wraith is always ready to deliver its dynamic pledge. After a sweeping curve, for instance, the best gear is always automatically selected for easy acceleration.
