2014 Geneva: Mansory unveils its 740 hp Rolls-Royce Wraith

Article by Christian A., on March 3, 2014

Mansory didn’t prepare only the Vivere Veyron for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show as the tuning company also unveiled a custom Rolls-Royce Wraith. Featuring a two-tone paint job in chrome and petrol blue, the Rolls-Royce Wraith also received a new body kit consisting of a new front apron with separately integrated LED and daytime running lights, as well as a rear and roof spoiler that underline the changes under the bonnet.

For those who don’t know, the standard Rolls-Royce Wraith is powered by a 6.6-liter V12 engine that delivers 632 hp (465 kW) and 800 Nm of torque.

Thanks to refined engine characteristics and an exhaust system tuned right to the tailpipe, the V12 engine now delivers 740 hp (544 kW) and 1,000 Nm of torque. The two-tone vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph.

The standard version hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

Power is delivered to the road via the 22-inch ultra light forged alloy wheels. The interior was updated to and comes with two-tone leather upholstery that takes the petrol blue of the exterior paintwork and contrasts this with a gentle beige. Selective carbon refinements in the cockpit, with multi-coat piano lacquer, provide individual accents.

The spirit of these historic ventures is well-reflected on the new Rolls-Royce Wraith. This vehicle itself can be considered to be beyond the typical realm of design and engineering, making it good enough to challenge perceptions while providing an engaging driving experience. Designed and developed by Rolls-Royce, the new Wraith offers power and style in a dramatic manner.

As designed, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith conveys elegance and simplicity as well as poise and dynamism. At first look, it seems that the new Wraith is all ready to jump into action as its driver desires. The exterior of the new Wraith exudes grace and beauty, as defined by the swept lines of the fastback.

Its dramatic exterior also conveys the performance promise of the new Wraith. Its wider rear track and shorter wheelbase communicates the capabilities of the new Wraith, which is provided by its twin-turbo V12 engine that could deliver 624 bhp (465 kW) of output. This power level is good enough to allow the Wraith to sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds).

However, it would be wrong to consider the Wraith as a GT bruiser. After all, it is first and foremost a Rolls-Royce car that focuses on providing the refinement and luxury needed to enjoy every trip.
