New York Auto Show: Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe image

Rolls-Royce has recently brought its newest model, the Wraith Coupe, to the 2013 New York Auto Show, where it was presented in a local premiere.

After it was officially unveiled just a few weeks ago, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, for the first time, the Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker pulling the wraps off its body in New York. The Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe is based on the Ghost sedan and it’s coming with a fresh design thanks to every body panel replaced. The Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe can be truly named a “gentlemen’s gran turismo” because it’s faster, has a sumptuous interior with wood, leather Starlight headliner and more.

Power to the Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe is being provided by a V12 engine, mated to an eight-speed ZF transmission, which is sending 800 Nm of torque to the ground from as low as 1,500 rpm. The HP figure now stands at 624 BHP, compared to the previous 563 BHP, and this is enough to allow the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds. The model will go on sale from 300,000 USD.
