Rolls-Royce Wraith to attack hill climb

At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

Rolls-Royce Wraith to attack hill climb.

The world will stand still at this year’s 'festival of speed' as the newest model in the leading super-luxury marque’s stable, Wraith, dominates the famous Goodwood hill climb during the supercar run this week that is held in the grounds of Goodwood HouseWest SussexEngland.

The most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history, Wraith will be on familiar turf, with the home of Rolls-Royce within sight of Goodwood House.

At the heart of Wraith lies hallmark Rolls-Royce attributes of luxury, refinement and hand‑craftsmanship, but the new model, from the world’s leading super-luxury marque, also presents a unique character defined by power, style and drama.

The elegant fastback design hints at the dynamic prowess: 624 bhp/465kW, 800 Nm from 1,500 rpm: 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (0‑62 mph in 4.6 seconds).

The ultimate gentlemen’s gran turismo, Wraith can be seen between hill climbs in the Supercar Paddock.

In addition, Rolls-Royce will have a significant presence at this year’s festival of speed, including:

Centenary Alpine Trial ‘Works Team’.

Having successfully completed the 1800-mile Centenary Alpine Trial two weeks ago, Rolls-Royce is delighted to present the ‘works team’ that joined 47 'silver ghosts' – many over 100 years old ­– on this historic and challenging event.

The original event led commentators to declare that Rolls-Royce built the ‘best car in the world’.

In celebration, the original 1913 ‘Radley Car’ and the new 2013 Alpine Trial Centenary Ghost will travel up the hill climb side by side four times each day.

Moving Motor Show

Rolls-Royce is providing invited guests with the opportunity to drive a brand new Rolls-Royce Phantom or Rolls-Royce Alpine Trial Centenary Ghost around the Goodwood Estate during the Moving Motor Show today.

A new Rolls-Royce Wraith will be on static display on the Rolls‑Royce stand throughout the weekend.


The return of the 'soapbox challenge', in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the festival of speed, would not be complete without the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars team.

The Company’s two four-wheeled gravity racers, until recently on display at the Home of Rolls-Royce, will be taking part on Saturday and Sunday.
