Rolls-Royce has released a second teaser of the Ghost-based Wraith coupe ahead of its Geneva debut

Rolls-Royce has released another teaser of the forthcoming Wraith ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 March.

The Wraith is a two-door coupe version of the Ghost saloon and a previous teaser shot revealed the car’s swooping roofline to be reminiscent of the Bentley Continental GT’s.

This new rear shot reveals a few recognisable Ghost features, including the rear lights and chrome trim above the number plate. The rear wheelarches look a little more pronounced, though, suggesting the Wraith could have a wider track than the Ghost for more dynamic handling.

Rolls-Royce has hinted that the Wraith has more power than the standard Ghost, so expect to see more than 563bhp from its 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12. The Wraith should still get an eight-speed automatic gearbox and air suspension but expect to see both tuned for slightly sportier performance.

The Wraith will sit above the standard Ghost in the range and is expected to cost around £220,000.

cant wait for this, just love RR, Glad BMW has looked after the Rolls Royce Image and name so well

Whilst being a fan of classic automibile elegance I feel that under BMW they - RR - have lost the plot!

The cars are obviously designed for the "New Rich" and so do not have that something they used to have.Just look at the fronts of the latest!

Bentley on the other hand still have that sporting elegance and WOB would be extremely proud of the present line up. And their sporting successes!

Here Winterkorn and VW are doing it right and letting Crewe do its own thing using hardware out of the VW Programme where prudent!
