Rolls-Royce has just added their most powerful model ever to their line-up: the Rolls-Royce Wraith.

The Wraith is a culmination of luxury, power, and style, making it the ultimate gentlemen’s gran turismo. From the outside you see the classic Roll-Royce styling, but this time you get a sense of speed and power thanks to the sweeping fastback design. Inside the Wraith is Phantom-grade leathers, expanses of wood called ‘Canadel Panelling, and a Starlight Headliner. This is the first time the Starlight Headliner is available beyond Phantom family cars.

Now onto the good stuff. At the heart of the Wraith is a V12 mated to an 8-speed automatic ZF transmission. This magnificent engine provides the Wraith with 624bhp, allowing it to reach 60mph from a standstill in just 4.4 seconds. From 1,500rpm, 590 lb-ft of torque is available. Suspension in the Wraith has also been tuned to minimize body roll, making cornering at high speed much more enjoyable compared to other Rolls-Royce models. Even though the Wraith is an extraordinarily powerful car, it still provides the insanely smooth ride that Rolls-Royce is known for.

In Europe the Wraith will sell for $319,357, but prices for other markets have yet to be revealed. Expect to see the first deliveries of the Wraith being made in the final quarter of this year.
