Latest teaser shows the new Wraith coupe’s door trim and interior clock

Rolls-Royce has continued its drip-feed of pictures and information about its new Wraith coupe model. This time, the images show the wood panelling on the Wraith’s suicide door and the new car’s interior clock.

The door’s wood trim is made from an open-pore wood called ‘Canadel Panelling,’ while the Wraith-branded interior clock features blood orange-coloured tips to its hands, which the firm claims “point to the car’s dynamic potential, while paying homage to the marque’s aviation heritage.”

Aside from the new images, details are still scarce. The firm says that the Wraith “features a luxurious, contemporary interior to complement the dynamic poise of its exterior styling.”

To that end, the Wraith features an interior design that’s inspired by “an ultra-luxury yacht… the horseshoe sweep of Wraith’s cabin also echoes the cove at Le Canadel in the South of France where Sir Henry Royce and his design team spent their winters.”

The image of the Wraith’s door and clock are the third set of images that Rolls-Royce has released in advance of the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

The first teaser showed the Wraith’s coupe roof in profile and confirmed the car’s name for the first time, while the second image showed the car’s rear and its similarity to the Ghost on which the Wraith is based.

The Wraith is expected to use the same 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 as the Ghost, albeit uprated from the current car’s 563bhp. An eight-speed automatic gearbox and air suspension will also feature, but both will be tuned for sportier performance.

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