Spofec refined Rolls-Royce Wraith
Stetten, December 3, 2014
With a list price of just under 280,000 euros a Rolls-Royce Wraith should leave no wish unfulfilled. The two-door coupe is factory pure luxury, spread over 5.27 meters long, 1.95 meters wide and 1.51 meters high. To some of the auto giant is still not exclusive enough. For these severe cases of automotive dissatisfaction at the highest level of nagging German Rolls-Royce tuner Spofec has a solution immediately.
717 hp and 986 Newton meters
Spofec installed in Wraith an additional engine control unit and this intervenes in the electronics of the 6.6-liter V12. Special mapping for injection and ignition as well as an increase in boost pressure can be 85 additional horses free and increase the maximum torque of 186 Newton meters. Thus, the performance potential on stately 717 hp and 986 Nm of torque grows monstrous. The standard sprint succeed the luxury coupé as in 4.2 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited at 250 continues km / h. The eight-speed automatic is standard on the series. Can be described that the associated driving experience " superior", probably is beyond question. To speak of " exemplary environmental friendliness ", but might be somewhat exaggerated.
Weight decrease, brakes and exhaust
A ventilated carbon ceramic high-performance brake system replaced the Serienverzögerer, which among other things has also a reduction in the weight of the unsprung mass result. 38 kilos, the coupe easier. Again five kilograms go thanks to the new stainless-steel sport exhaust system with exhaust flap control flutes. Makes a total of 43 kilograms of Diet Scale. Whether this notice tonnes unladen weight of 2.4?
In order to provide the extra power and lowered the weight to adequate way to flaunt, Spofec replaces the stock bumper complete with a Hand-made from carbon fiber. The integrated front flaps can be optionally equipped with a visible carbon structure. Side skirts with air outlets indicated behind the front wheel arches reinforce the sporty look. At the rear sits a discreet spoiler lip made of carbon fiber. The apron was also designed and built under it as a complete unit.
New control module for the air suspension
Even the stately air suspension is tuned for a sporty appearance. A control module lets the Wraith up to a speed of 140 km / h in a crouched position therefore slide. 40 millimeters puts the Rolls-Royce in this setting towards the ground. At higher speeds, the body will lift automatically returns to the original level.
No chance for under 280,000 €
If the all-important question of the price of the good piece. There is him with Spofec on prospective inquiry. One thing we can tell but cheaper than the list price of 280,000 euros for the production model you probably will not get away . (ml)
