Rolls-Royce has slipped word it has some big news for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, hinting that the all-new Wraith set to debut there will be “most dynamic, powerful and beautiful Rolls-Royce in the company’s history.”
The name is somehow fitting for Rolls, all the more so when you realize it was one of the brand’s more legendary badges, dating back to 1938 and a production run that totaled just 492 cars – though the maker later followed with the Silver Wraith. Clearly, Rolls has bigger aspirations this time, at least in relative terms, as it’s not exactly your mainstream brand.
The 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith is the long-promised coupe version of the maker’s Ghost, the “lowest” priced vehicle in the British maker’s current line-up and the best-selling. Of course, price is relative, and it’s likely to carry a premium over the sedan model, which starts at $256,000.
