Rolls-Royce Chief Inspector Morse Wraith unveiled image

A one-off version of the Rolls-Royce Wraith has been officially unveiled, wearing the Chief Inspector Morse name.

Inspired by the “cult British detective TV series” Inspector Morse, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith unveiled by the British brand is getting a bespoke red and black exterior design, matching the one of the original car, which was actually a Jaguar. Rolls-Royce has also added the 20 layers of paint and this has taken 18 times longer than the standard Wraith. The cabin of the car has been updated too with the two-tone styling and here we can see the red and black upholstery, along with the piano black wood trim.

Under its hood, we can find the same 6.6 liter V12 twin turbo engine, which is offered in standard from, with 623 HP (465 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, available between 1,500 rpm and 5,500 rpm, so if you were hoping for some performance modifications, you will be disappointed. Power is being sent to the rear-wheel drive through an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The Rolls-Royce Wraith has been based on the Ghost and it has been in production in Goodwood since 2013. This has a front-engine layout and a 2-door coupe body style, standing in at 5,268 mm long, 1,948 mm wide and riding on a 3,112 mm long wheelbase.
