Rolls-Royce Wraith Makes Italian Debut By Lake Como
Rolls-Royce Wraith just made its Italian debut at the Concorso d'Eleganza, Villa d'Este in Cernobbio. The Wraith model is the boldest and most powerful Rolls-Royce ever produced. The two-door luxury coupé with fastback design promises to deliver extraordinary power and style.
To be more precise, the vehicle is equipped with a twin-turbo V12 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic ZF transmission. The unit is capable of generating 624 bhp (465kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque from 1500 rpm. This delivers an instant acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h for just 4.4 seconds.
As a matter of fact, Wraith was inspired by grand Italian and British fastback designs from the 1930s, but it of course makes a step further. Every inch of this Rolls-Royce is refined and luxurious. Therefore it delivers the comfort one would expect from the pinnacle brand.
Moreover, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith is equipped with wide range of exclusive technologies. For instance, the Satellite Aided Transmission processes GPS data to predict the driver's next move. It operates by automatically choosing the correct gear for the road ahead. There is also included a one-touch call button akin to an on-board valet. It allows navigation, telephone and multimedia to be controlled via voice.
Throughout the interior can be seen the prominent utilization of the finest materials. Canadel Panelling – a tactile, open grain wood sweeps round the lower hull of Wraith's interior. Next, a Starlight Headliner rounds-off the glamour. It bathes cabin in a warm glow via its thousands of tiny fibre-optic lamps hand-woven into the roof-lining.
At Lake Como was the stage where the Wraith made its official debut in Italy. There were also presented past, present and future Rolls-Royce cars. Another highlight at the event was the Silver Ghost, which was driven by Radley to victory in the Alpine Trials 100 years ago in Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
In addition, both vehicles were accompanied by the Ghost Alpine Trial Centenary Collection model. The latter was designed in order to celebrate the centenary of the Alpine Trials and Bespoke personalization.
