As we count down to the Geneva Motor Show in March, Rolls-Royce has revealed more teaser images of the two-door version of the Ghost Saloon, known as the Wraith. "This image depicts Wraith's muscular rear haunches – a visual cue that gives bold expression to Wraith's promise of dynamism. A sense that this is a car set to move with purpose on its driver’s command," said Rolls-Royce in a statement.

The Wraith rides on a shorter wheelbase version of the Ghost's platform, resulting in weight reduction in the process.

The BMW-owned British car maker said in a statement that the Wraith "will be the most dynamic, powerful and beautiful Rolls-Royce in the company's history." Speaking of power, Rolls-Royce has not released any details on what lies underneath the hood. However, it is expected to be powered by a modified version of the twin-turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 borrowed from the Ghost.

The 563bhp Ghost saloon goes from 0 to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds, so that sets the base expectation for the Wraith.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
