Rolls-Royce Wraith spyshot - front three-quarter view, disguisedWell here's a nice twofer. On the same day Rolls-Royce releases its first official teaser image showing the 2014 Wraith, we also get a look at the car undergoing some cold-weather testing courtesy of some new spy shots. As the coupe version of the Ghost, the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and it's expected to go on sale during the fourth quarter of this year.

Rolls-Royce already confirmed plenty of information in a teaser it released last week, but the latest image shows us a clear shot of what the car's midsection will look like. Comparing this image and the spy shots, we can see that the Wraith will have a pretty sleek – (almost Bentley Continental GT-like) roofline, and, like the Phantom Coupe, it will have rear-hinged doors. We can also tell from the spy shots that it seems to be keeping the same face as the Ghost and taillights, too.

Be sure to check out the latest spy photos for the Wraith as well as a brief press release from Rolls-Royce by scrolling below.

ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH: IN PROFILE

22.01.2013

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today publishes the first official image of its new model Wraith, which will be launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013.

The graceful silhouette gives expression to a bold and thoroughly contemporary luxury motor car. Flowing lines hint at the extraordinary power and dynamic promise of the most powerful Rolls-Royce in history, yet also highlight design cues that can be traced through the model generations.

Rolls-Royce Wraith evokes the pioneering spirit and lust for adventure that drove company forefather the Honourable Charles Rolls - the consummate gentleman racer. But like Rolls, Wraith will also be steeped in the trappings of luxury and opulence.

When Wraith is present, for that fleeting moment, the world will stand still.

        There has been some recent talk/rumors of that, built on the new Omega platform.

      Almost a bit of a tongue twister. Roy Rogers really reveres red Rolls-Royce Wraiths.

      I see design cues from the 1950s Bentley Continental R fastback in the teaser photo. Nice that BMW wants a link to a sporting RR product from the past for the Ghost "coupe". http://www.the-blueprints.com/blueprints/cars/bentley/52664/view/bentley_continental_r_mulliner/

      I always loved that name. Nice profile, I wonder if it is just a Ghost coupe, or they made some significant changes.

        Except not a single line on the teaser looks anything remotely like the Mustang. The camo'd prototype with its fake panels and cover ups might resemble the general shape, but that was probably the point to the camoflage, right?

        Really. Rolls trying to conquer the toothless hillbilly NASCAR Fan market?

        Exactly what came to my mind too.

      Looking at it again, the roofline looks a lot like my Caddy V12 XTC coupe: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-IPOzFt6Q664/TnDLgXkudkI/AAAAAAAAEt0/kfCg2Fbft1g/s1600/CadillacV12_XTC_Coupe_2014.jpg or V-series: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-KDX0QCwONPM/TnDLhVOlKvI/AAAAAAAAEt4/sgAXC7AFx3Y/s1600/CadillacV12_XTC_VSeries_2014.jpg

      Rolls Royce's hey-look-at-me! nouveau riche styling is already bad enough. When you take that image (it's image more than it is design) and apply it to a different body style, things start to become ludicrous.

          Don't blame me for the fact that Rolls now makes ugly, tasteless vehicles for rappers and eastern Chinese mining moguls.

        PS and it looks NOTHING like any Mustang, fastback or not.

        On the first glance looking at the back only i was skeptical, but now actually thinking of the whole thing and that iconic front combined with the back it could actually look quite amazing. We will see.

      Its different but I kind of like it. If I was that rich and I was going to be buying a master of the universe coupe I wouldn't want it looking boring. Which I think the Bentley line has sort of lost its way in that regard. Still amazing cars but they are just sorta bland like most things that seem to come from VW auto group.
