Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha, the sole dealer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Qatar, unleashed the power, style and drama of the new Rolls-Royce Wraith on 11 and 12 April 2014 at the Losail International Circuit.
The exclusive drive event marked the first time that a Rolls-Royce vehicle was track tested in Qatar, and was organised to showcase the Wraith’s effortless high-speed performance and agility.
General Manager at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha, Mohamed Kandeel, said:
This first ever drive event in Qatar for a Rolls-Royce vehicle to be held on a race track is a special milestone for us. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha was keen to showcase the Wraith’s exceptional speed, power and agility to our exclusive clients and prospective clients and so far the feedback has been excellent. While our Ghost and Phantom families are very popular as chauffeur driven vehicles, the Wraith is meant to be driven and enjoyed by its owner and we are happy that we managed to showcase its exceptional capabilities.’
Test-driving the fastest and most dynamic vehicle produced in the British ultra-luxury automaker’s 110 year history were an exclusive group of current and prospective Rolls-Royce owners. Experiencing the full power of the Wraith’s enormous 624 bhp engine, the group enjoyed exhilarating laps on the Losail International Circuit in Qatar while also enjoying the serene space and striking, contemporary design of the vehicle’s interior.
As showcased at the event, the Wraith’s sweeping fastback design gives the car a unique character. Bold lines, tension in the panels and a raked rear screen evoke the image of a world class athlete poised in the starting blocks. Further expression of dynamic intent can be seen in Wraith’s deeply recessed grille, wide rear track and dramatic two-tone presentation.
As illustrated on the motor racing circuit, performance delivers on the promise of Wraith’s styling, with power delivery occurring effortlessly but dramatically thanks to a V12 engine married to 8-speed automatic ZF transmission.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha, as part of the drive event, also displayed the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Rolls-Royce Phantom families of vehicles, but put a special spotlight on the Wraith as a vehicle to be driven by its owner and not for being driven in. As the ultimate gentlemen’s gran turismo, the Wraith embodies the spirit of adventure and speed and offers a polished, effortless driving experience.
