Rolls-Royce Wraith Takes Center Stage at Goodwood FoSThursday, July 11, 2013 7:39 by Arman Barari
Rolls-Royce confirmed debut of its latest and most dynamic model at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Wraith will be on display for the festival goers to admire its lavish proportions, and also part of the moving motorshow on the Goodwood hill. It is, after all, the fastest Roller ever.
The mighty Warith might be a two-door fastback version of the Ghost, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t special. For one thing, it looks like nothing else out there, what with its sloping roof, short tail, and long bonnet.
And then there’s the power of the thing. The Wraith is powered by V12 turbo engine that with 624 bhp/465kW and 800 Nm of torque makes a proper Grand Tourer out of the big Roller. That ginormous torque is available from just 1,500 rpm, which means this huge automobile can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 4.4 seconds.
Rolls Royce will also showcase the achievements of its Centenary Alpine Trial works team at the festival, along with the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Rolls-Royce Alpine Trial Centenary Ghost for selected guests to drive around the Goodwood estate in.
They also provide a Phantom Coupé with race lights and Goodwood decals to serve as the Course Car, and a fleet of cars to shuttle invited guests from the Company’s manufacturing plant and head office on the south-eastern corner of the Goodwood Estate.
