Wraith is the most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history.

Father’s Day Weekend 2013 saw the west coast debut of the Rolls-Royce Wraith, presented at a series of events with the O’Gara Coach Company’s Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Beverly Hills.

Wraith’s tour began with an exclusive viewing for select O’Gara Coach clients at a beautiful Beverly Hills home on Friday, June 14th. The elegant evening offered loyal Rolls-Royce enthusiasts an up close look at this eagerly anticipated addition to the Rolls-Royce line. Owner Tom O’Gara began the ceremony by introducing Eric C. Shepherd, President of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America, who had the honor or officially introducing Wraith. Following the unveiling, Philip Harnett, the Product Manager behind Wraith, took the podium to speak about the process that led to Wraith’s creation. He then invited guests to come up and see the vehicle first hand.

On Saturday, June 15th, Wraith was on display at O’Gara Coach’s Beverly Hills showroom for future owners unable to attend the Friday event, and finally on Sunday, June 16th, the technologically advanced Wraith enjoyed its first public display on the west coast at the Jet Age-themed 2013 Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance.

Introduced to the world at the Geneva Motor Show in May 2013, Wraith is the most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history. At its heart lie the hallmark Rolls-Royce attributes of luxury, refinement and hand-craftsmanship, while the new model also presents a unique character defined by power, style and drama.

In profile, Wraith’s sweeping fastback design gives the car its unique character. Coach doors open to reveal a sumptuous interior complete with the softest leathers and expanses of wood, cosseting four occupants in a space bathed in light and warmth. Performance delivers on the promise of Wraith’s styling with power delivery that is effortless yet dramatic, thanks to the 624bhp twin-turbocharged V12 engine married to an 8-speed automatic Satellite Aided transmission. This groundbreaking transmission technology is a world first for a production car, processing GPS data to predict the driver’s next move and automatically selecting the right gear for the road ahead. Deliveries of Wraith will commence in the final quarter of 2013. To learn more or place an order, please contact Rolls-Royce Beverly Hills at (888) 291-5533.
