Taking (yet) Another Leak

Well, someone leaked the Bentley Flying Spur shots before they were to come out.
I've just found the new Rolls-Royce Wraith leaked shots:
I like it.
I love all the wood trim inside.
Hi tech as we would expect.
Not so sure about the 'starry' headliner though...
But here it is. A Goodwood rendition of the Conti GT:
But that's okay to me.
Here's what AutoEXPRESS said:
"This two-door coupe version of the Ghost is the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever, with 624bhp from its 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12.
That eclipses the Ghost's 563bhp, while the Wraith also has 20Nm more torque than the saloon, with the staggering 800Nm output available from only 1,500rpm. The result is 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds – that's three-tenths up on the Ghost.

To make the Wraith more agile than the saloon, the company has also tweaked the suspension, widened the rear track and shortened the wheelbase. Rolls says the new suspension will "discreetly amplify feedback", while the steering will weight up at high speeds.

The Wraith also debuts a new Satellite Aided Transmission system. This uses satellite maps and data to help the eight-speed automatic gearbox predict corners, motorway junctions and roundabouts, and select the most appropriate gear.

Rear-hinged doors open to reveal a Ghost-inspired interior featuring new matt Canadel wood panelling. There's also the option of Starlight headlining, with 1,340 handwoven fibre optic lights – this is the first time it's been offered outside the Phantom.

A new voice command system allows drivers to tell the sat-nav where they want to be navigated to, while the new infotainment controller has a smartphone-style pinch to zoom facility. It even lets users draw letters for postcodes.

The Wraith is priced from 245,000 Euros, which should translate to around £220,000 when the first cars are delivered here towards the end of the year. "

Quite the most hideous, ill-proportioned creation this side of the Pontiac Aztec. The Ford Granada Ghia coupe of the 1970s was better looking, and that's saying something.
