The suspension has also been stiffened to minimise body roll and ensure the driver gets a better sense of feedback when cornering. The steering weight is also heavier at high speeds and lighter at low speeds to encourage spirited driving.

However, company boss Müller-Ötvös emphasised that the Wraith should not be considered an outright sporting GT. 'While the Wraith does push the brand in a new direction, evolving it in a way that we hope will attract new, perhaps younger customers, it is still a Rolls-Royce, and the 'bed of air' ride our customers expect is still uppermost in the car's DNA.'

Technical innovations to complement the car¹s dynamics include a satellite-aided transmission, which uses GPS mapping data and driving style measurements to ensure the correct gear is pre-selected for the road ahead by the eight-speed ZF gearbox.

Inside, the Wraith features Phantom-grade leathers and new wood panelling, which stretches across the coach doors through to the rear of the car. A starlight headliner is also available in a model other than the Phantom for the first time, working via 1,340 tiny lamps hand-woven into the roof lining.

There is no word yet on pricing.
