This new concept will be a two-door coupe based on the sedan version of Ghost and will become the most powerful and fastest car of the brand in history. Wheelbase compared with the sedan is reduced by 180 mm (up to 3115 mm) and the overall length by 200 mm (up to 5199 mm). The roof line drops by 60-70 mm, and the weight of the model was reduced to 2300 kg (making it lighter by 200 kg).

Under the hood of the Wraith there will be a 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 from the Ghost sedan, but engineers will increase the power output of the motor from 563-hp to 610-hp. The engine will be coupled with the 8-speed automatic transmission ZF. In addition, the compartment will receive an upgraded suspension with a sport setting, modified brakes and more tenacious tires.
