The coupe, which was unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, is also one of the most powerful models ever built by the Sussex firm and is capable of 0-62mph in just 4.4 seconds

The Wraith on display features Midnight Sapphire paintwork with an upper two-tone in Cassiopeia Silver, accentuating Wraith’s purposeful fastback profile.

Inside, the interior is finished with an Arctic White and Navy Blue leather scheme, with intertwined RRs embroidered in the headrests in Navy.

Torsten Muller-Otvos, boss of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: “Wraith promises the sense of adventure and speed that drove our founding forefather.

“But of course, Wraith’s starting point is luxury, refinement and quality, traits that remain as important to Rolls-Royce customers today as they were more than a century ago.”
