Paul Harris, Regional Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars – Asia Pacific, said: “The most powerful Rolls-Royce motor car in history has been eagerly awaited by our Australian customers. We foresee it being a sought-after addition to the Rolls-Royce family in Australia, a market which has embraced two-door Rolls-Royce cars. Wraith stretches the boundaries for Rolls-Royce and will help steer our future.”
Wraith boasts a V12 engine married to 8-speed automatic ZF transmission. 624 bhp / 465kW is available to the driver while the 0-100 km/h sprint is achieved in 4.6 seconds, compared with 563 bhp / 420kW and 0-100 in 4.9 seconds for Ghost.
The Rolls-Royce trait of effortlessness is achieved with Satellite Aided Transmission, which processes GPS data to predict the driver’s next move, automatically selecting the correct gear for the road ahead at motorway junctions and roundabouts. A one-touch call button akin to an on-board valet, allows navigation, telephone and multimedia to be controlled via voice commands.
Dan Balmer, General Manager, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars – Asia Pacific, added: “Wraith is not only an exceptional car, but also the first product launched for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars where the Bespoke programme will be immediately available. In a market like Australia, we see this being particularly attractive due to a strong demand for highly personalised motor cars. For example, Sydney has the highest uptake of Bespoke for our Ghost family cars in the region.”
Wraith pricing in Australia starts at $645,000 AUD with first customers to receive their orders by quarter four of this year.
