The Rolls-Royce Wraith has been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

The luxury coupe is the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever. The 6.6-litre V12 engine produces 624bhp and gets the Wraith from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds. The eight-speed automatic gearbox is connected to the car's sat-nav system, which allows it to read the road ahead and plan gearchanges accordingly.

The fastback design, muscular rear, wide wheelarches, recessed grille and two-tone paintwork give the Wraith an aggressive and sporting look.

Inside, there's a luxury interior finished in wood and leather, while a starlight headlining as found in the Rolls-Royce Phantom is also included.

The Wraith features a number of technological aids including a head-up display, voice control for many of the car's functions and a touch-pad controller for the infotainment system.

Pricing and delivery information will be revealed closer to the Wraith going on sale, but expect a starting price of more than 220,000.
