Rolls-Royce takes Wraith for a quick drive

by on Jun.12, 2013, under Auto Review Specs

Rolls-Royce Wraith product manager Philip Harnett has taken the luxurious and elegant coupe for a drive on UK’s country roads.

Basically a Ghost Coupe, Wraith represents Rolls-Royce’s fastest and most powerful model ever made thanks to its huge twin-turbo V12 6.6-liter engine producing 624 bhp (465 kW) and 799 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. Power is transferred to the ground via an eight-speed automatic gearbox which enables the Wraith to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds.

Rolls-Royce fitted the Wraith with a clever system called Satellite Aided Transmission which uses GPS data to preselect the correct gear for the type of terrain up ahead.

Wraith has a starting price in Europe of 245,000 EUR, with first deliveries commencing in the final quarter of the year. A convertible version has already been confirmed and will be out in 2014 or 2015.

Schumacher and Pals Will Get You Off the Couch!

4 racing talents take on one of the greatest of all time.

f1 sCHUMACKER
There are few ways to liven up a slow Sunday. This video might just do the trick, featuring Mercedes F1 driver Nico Rosberg in an SLS AMG Black Series, F1 safety car driver Bernd Maylander in an A45 AMG, former F1 pros Karl Wendlinger in an E63 AMG and Bernd Schneider in the SLS AMG GT3.

Any day at the Nurburgring with these racing vets would certainly be enough to get any racing fans’ heart pumping, but the highlight here was the friendly matchup of the four pros against F1 legend Michael Schumacher in the Silver Arrow.

Even though its a glorified promo video for Mercedes AMG. It is still amusing to watch the ever calm Schumacher take off in the Silver Arrow and handle business.
