A Spec­ta­cle to Be­hold

Pinnacle (Singapore) - - CON­TENTS -

Tony Watts makes a trip to the Good­wood Re­vival and is awed by the cars in at­ten­dance.

Wraith went on a tour of In­dia last Au­gust, mak­ing stops in ma­jor cities that in­cluded New Delhi, Mum­bai and Hy­der­abad.

The tour pro­vided cus­tomers with a chance to see the el­e­gant coupé up close, and Yadur Ka­pur, Di­rec­tor for Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars New Delhi, was con­fi­dent that the car would be a hit in the coun­try.

He said: “Wraith rep­re­sents a mag­nif­i­cent mile­stone for Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars. I fore­see it ap­peal­ing to a new seg­ment of In­dian cus­tomers who value driv­ing in style and com­fort but want ef­fort­less per­for­mance.”

Wraith has a pow­er­ful twin-turbo V12 en­gine that is com­ple­mented with an 8-speed au­to­matic ZF trans­mis­sion.The coupé can ac­cel­er­ate from zero to 100km/h in an im­pres­sive 4.6 sec­onds.

Fin­ished in Di­a­mond Black lower and Sil­ver Sand up­per paint, this two-tone pre­sen­ta­tion of the In­dia- tour­ing Wraith com­ple­ments the car’s sweep­ing fast­back de­sign.

Ad­vances in me­chan­i­cal and elec­tri­cal tech­nol­ogy have also en­abled the mar­que to de­liver sys­tems like a head-up dis­play, adap­tive head­lights and a key­less open­ing boot.

Cam­era sys­tems will come as stan­dard in all Wraith mod­els, in ad­di­tion to voice-ac­ti­va­tion com­mands and the Spirit of Ec­stasy ro­tary con­troller, which al­lows nav­i­ga­tion through on-screen func­tions us­ing a touch pad.

Sharad Kachalia, Di­rec­tor of Sales and Mar­ket­ing, Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars Mum­bai, said: “I am very pleased to have this car in Mum­bai.The sense of power, style and drama fits our fash­ion­able and metropoli­tan city well. It com­ple­ments the rest of the Rolls-Royce range per­fectly.”
