BMW Group owned British luxury car maker Rolls Royce’s new 2 door coupe – the Rolls Royce Wraith is all set to launch on August 19, 2013 in India.
Rolls Royce Wraith will come to India via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route. The exact pricing details of the vehicle are yet to be announced, but it is expected to be priced at around Rs. 5 crore.
The new Rolls Royce Wraith was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, where it bagged applause from enthusiasts and visitors.
Under the hood, the new Rolls Royce Wraith gets a new 6.6-litre TwinTurbo V12 engine, which is capable of developing a power output of 624bhp at 800Nm of peak torque. The vehicle accelerates to 100kmph from stand still in a mere 4.6 seconds. The new Rolls Royce Wraith’s engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which uses GPS data to preselect an appropriate gear ratio to deal with the upcoming road conditions.
The interiors of the new Rolls Royce Wraith come with top notch materials that consist of richest of the leather and have been hand-crafted to perfection. The interior of the car is adorned with open pore wood named Canadel Panelling. Rolls Royce says that the interior of the new car has been inspired from that of an ultra-luxury yacht.
The new Rolls Royce Wraith coupe is based on the Ghost luxury sedan, which in turn, is based on the BMW 7 Series flagship sedan. The Wraith is the only two door coupe in the British luxury carmaker’s product portfolio and is targeted at those who are in the market for a sporty yet classy two door coupe.
