Rolls-Royce has dropped a third teaser for its upcoming coupe that we'll be seeing in a few weeks at the Geneva Motor Show. A couple of weeks ago, we saw the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith in a shadowy profile shot, and now we're getting an (admittedly limited) idea of what the rear of the car will look like.

As suggested by a recent set of spy shots, the 2014 Wraith should have a rear-end styling very similar – if not identical – to the Rolls-Royce Ghost, which this car is a coupe version of. In typical Rolls-Royce fashion, the British automaker promises that this new model will deliver plenty of power, style and drama, though it's declining to get more specific about what that power is (other than to say it will be "more than ample"). We have no indication that the engine won't be the 563-horsepower, 6.6-liter V8 that's in the Ghost, but we'll have to wait until next month to find out for sure.

ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH: POWER, STYLE, DRAMA

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today publishes the second image of its next model, Wraith, a hand-built motor car that exudes hallmark Rolls-Royce luxury and comfort whilst possessing a character defined by Power, Style and Drama.

For 108 years, effortless power delivery has been inherent to the Rolls-Royce brand promise. This image depicts Wraith's muscular rear haunches – a visual cue that gives bold expression to Wraith's promise of dynamism. A sense that this is a car set to move with purpose on its driver's command.

And so to the question of Power. In times gone by, when asked the question, Rolls-Royce would simply reply, "Adequate, Sir". However, for Wraith we feel it right to be a touch more explicit:

"More than ample."

All will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 March 2013.

      That looks oddly like the rear end of the Lincoln Town car to me...

      Ha-ha, Rolls bought the tooling and is now going to produce the discontinued Lincoln Town car as their new Wraith.

      I tried to brighten the levels of the photo to see into the dark areas a little, but they made sure the dark parts are pure black, so it's useless. Well played, RR, well played...

      I saw this car in the flesh on Friday at a special event in Los Angeles. The front end looks like a Ghost, but with a deeper grill. The back end is well hidden in these shots. Much more fastback style, like a late 60s/70's Mustang...but with the same Ghost tail lights. Not a hatch though..trunk like a Caddy CTS coupe. There are some interesting lines along the C-pillar that make it stand out. The door cards inside are almost an entire piece of wood paneling, with leather armrest housing the switches. The car was a two tone metallc brown low down, and silver/beige metallic on top. It's a very striking car. Not my thing, nor in my price range (LOL), but it will definitely grab your attention when you see it live in a few months.
