AutoCarUK was able to get the scoop on the much-anticipated Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe just ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut this week. That said, this latest Rolls is said to be the most powerful car ever built by the ultra-luxury British automaker.

Under the massively long hood sits a 12-cylinder engine capable of 624hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a sprint to 62 mph in just 4.4 seconds. This is in part made possible thanks to ZF’s latest eight-speed automatic transmission.

Rolls-Royce’s head honcho, Torsten Müller-Ötvös described the Wraith Coupe as “having a hint of menace in the design that is new to the brand, but with the driving experience and performance to live up to that promise.

The Wraith utilizes a chassis with a wheelbase that’s 183mm shorter than the Ghost—about 7.2 inches. That also means its 130mm shorter in overall length. The rear hind receives a 40mm wider track and over all, the car sits 43mm lower than the Ghost that it was based on.

“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,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, “it is still a Rolls-Royce, and the ‘bed of air’ ride our customers expect is still uppermost in the car’s DNA.”

The Rolls-Royce Wraith will come in as a 2014 model for around £215,000 with deliveries in the UK starting later this fall.
