Rolls Royce Wraith

First teaser image released. Rolls Royce makes a "driver's car".

Looks like its sights are set squarely on the Continental GT.

I saw the car on Monday in London at a private view, its beautiful! Honestly one of the coolest super/lux Gts I have ever seen.

Beautiful lines, and agile!

Cant wait to get behind the wheel!

Can't see the pics for any reason. Just saw some camo photos, the car looks way bigger than the CGT.

Also has GPS guided transmision that will know the corners ahead so if you are pushing...it will hold gears and change down if ur on a spirited drive.

Oooh.

I really haven't associated Rolls-Royce with cars designed for drivers, so it'll be interesting to see how well this does in reviews.

All the best,
Andrew.

Please. That is taking "automatic transmission" just a little too far...(if I believe it...)

every GPS system I've ever used has been wrong enough that I don't want it changing gears for me

First thing they make clear that its a true Rolls! not an attempt to get sporty, but a car more focused on the driver. Yes a lot of marketing talk...but so is every car launch.

End of the day....it looks great, quality, comfort, power, exclusive, and presence.

Until its driven, no one will know for sure...but I will predict it will be like a more agile ghost.

Just curious... is anyone else getting a whiff of Shelby Mustang GT-500 from the C-pillar and sloping back, or is it just me? Instead of the scoop, Rolls-Royce has put a window there.

All the best,
Andrew.

Looks like they are continuing the suicide door theme like the Phantom.
