New Teaser Image Confirms Rolls Royce Wraith will be a Fastback

A new teaser image confirmed today that the upcoming Rolls Royce Wraith will feature a fastback body design. The company also confirmed this will be the final teaser image before the car’s official debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The new teaser image reveals the three lines that underscore the car’s striking profile. Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ Design Director, confirmed that the new fastback profile is "Wraith’s defining element."

The upcoming Wraith will be defined by a graceful line running from the "top of the screen to the very rear edge,” a feature that will offer a "fast, yet effortless touring." A second line is running from the "side window graphic, gliding through Wraith’s glamorous coach door," while a third one "cuts through the shoulder line" and is most artful one.

Full details on the upcoming Rolls Royce Wraith will be unveiled during the car’s official debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

Press Release

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today confirms that its new model Wraith will be a fastback, and has issued the final image, in the series of teaser images, before Wraith’s launch in Geneva. This illustrates the three lines that underscore the car’s striking profile.

Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Design Director explains:

“The purposeful fastback profile is Wraith’s defining element.

“Inherent in the graceful line that sweeps from the top of the screen to the very rear edge is the promise of fast, yet effortless touring. Yet, perhaps my favourite aspect is the expressive gesture that comes from the side window graphic, gliding through Wraith’s glamorous coach door.

“It works with a strong sense of linear purpose from the shoulder line, which has the promise of potential like the athlete in the starting blocks. In contrast, the line that cuts through the shoulder line is a little more artful and adds that certain air of effortlessness to Wraith’s dynamic statement.

“In my view the most successful designs always come down to three or four lines.”
