A new spy shot captured in Germany shows the Rolls-Royce Wraith sporting some camouflage – and that can only mean it’s heading towards a facelift job, with the results possibly coming out this year in the fall.
While the Rolls-Royce models look timeless even when considering their modern depictions, we should remember the Wraith first made its official debut around three years ago during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. This makes it an auspicious time for the British automaker to look at a mild refresh for the model – which could debut as soon as October during the Paris Motor Show. The testing prototype was caught by the spy camera and comes with most of the camouflage on the front end of the model up to the A pillar – but since we’re talking about Rolls Royce we’re expecting the actual changes to be pretty light – close to British subtleness that is. So, we could be looking at a refresh for the design of the front bumper and modifications to the LED daytime running lights hosted there. Chances are we’re also looking at some tweaked headlights, fresh designs for the wheels, an updated back bumper and some graphics modifications on the taillights.
As for the cabin, we’re expecting the Wraith facelift to adopt some of the changes seen inside the Dawn convertible which if you remember boasts a new infotainment system with a 10.25-inch display, complete with the new touchpad that Rolls-Royce says it can make without the “unsightly fingerprints at driver and passenger eye level.” The biturbo 6.6-liter V12 engine packing 624 horsepower (632 PS) and 590 pound-feet (800 Nm) of torque might go on unchanged, with an electronically-controlled maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) and a run to 62 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds.
