Rolls-Royce has recently revealed the 2014 Wraith at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show that is described as “the darker side of Rolls-Royce – Power, Style and Drama.”
Rolls-Royce claims that the Wraith is its most “technically advanced and powerful” vehicle in history. With the 6.6 litre, twin turbo-charged V12 engine it delivers 624 bhp with 800 Nm of torque and reaches 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars said “The most powerful Rolls-Royce in history, Wraith promises the sense of adventure and speed that drove our founding forefather. But of course, Wraith’s starting point is luxury, refinement and quality, traits that remain as important to Rolls-Royce customers today as they were more than a century ago.”
In celebration of 60 years of collaboration with Aston Martin, Bertone has introduced a one-off Rapide shooting brake – The 2013 Aston Martin Rapide Bertone.
The vehicle, that has been commissioned by an Aston Martin collector, keeps the regular Rapide’s 2+2 seating configuration with more room for passengers in the back and features the rear lights of the Vanquish super-GT.
However, the Rapide Bertone does not offer the same engine as that which is fitted into the Rapide S. Rather power comes from the outgoing Rapide’s 470bhp 6.0-litre V12.
