Rolls-Royce Teases Wraith Coupe, We Catch It Cold-Weather Testing

Rolls-Royce has teased its upcoming Wraith coupe, which is slated for an official debut at the Geneva Motor Show later this year. However, our spy shooter managed to get a good look at the stately new two-door while it was out testing near the Arctic Circle.

Given that the Wraith is expected to essentially be a coupe version of the Ghost, chances are likely that the Wraith will use the same powertrain as the Ghost sedan. Rolls already promised that the Wraith will be the most-powerful and most dynamic model to wear its Spirit of Ecstasy hood mascot. That means buyers should expect upwards of the 563 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque that the Ghost's twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12 puts down.

Our spy shots show a number of the Wraith's design cues that have been lifted straight from the Ghost sedan. The Wraith caught testing looks to have an-almost identical front clip to the Ghost, with its slightly raked radiator grille, LED turn signals, and contoured hood. Around back, the Wraith wears the same LED taillights as the Ghost. The big difference, of course, is in profile – while the Ghost is a four-door, the Wraith will have only two doors and a sloping roofline. However, like the range-topping Phantom Coupe, the new two-door Rolls will also have rear-hinged doors. The Wraith also has longer rear quarter windows than the Phantom Coupe or the Ghost, as evidenced by the teaser released this morning.

Expect more details to follow as the official reveal for the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith draws closer.
