It’s been touted as the long-awaited coupe version of the top-selling Rolls-Royce Ghost. Soon we will all be able to feel the Rolls-Royce Coupe Wraith.

Luxury car maker Rolls-Royce first began using the Wraith name back in 1938. For months, there have been reports of prototypes of a large coupe being test in Europe.

It’s expected that the new Rolls-Royce Wraith will feature the Rolls-Royce Ghost’s turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12. The Ghost is rated at 563 horsepower, but word is that the Wraith will be somewhere around 600 horsepower.

Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös was quoted, “Rolls-Royce Wraith will draw superlatives when it is unveiled in Geneva. Expect the boldest design, the most dramatic performance and the most powerful Rolls-Royce that has ever played host to the famous Spirit of Ecstasy figurine.”

We can expect to see the new Rolls-Royce Wraith available for sale sometime in the 4th quarter of 2013. Based in prior models, we can expect to see a convertible version soon after.

The official unveiling will occur at the March 5 press day for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. The above video is a teaser from Rolls-Royce.
