Rolls-Royce Wraith in the back of a Shooting Brake spottedAugust 26, 2020
The Rolls-Royce Wraith Shooting Brake station wagon was captured by eyewitnesses. The car was not covered with any camouflage, so you can see its exterior in detail. So far, nothing is known about the date of the presentation of the novelty.
Rolls-Royce appears to be testing the Wraith as a station wagon – this version of the model will receive the Shooting Brake designation. This is evidenced by a recent “spy” video, which captured a prototype of a two-door station wagon. By a pleasant coincidence, a couple of hours ago, our publication had at its disposal photographs of another (and maybe the same) test car of the British novelty.
This station wagon appears to be of high quality workmanship. Compared to the actual Wraith coupe, it has a modified roofline. This change requires the use of a different side glass panel that is more rounded than the one used on the production vehicle. The most obvious improvement is the extension of the rear roof.
How this tailgate opens is unclear. The presence of hinges on the roof would appear to result in a limited range of motion, which would create quite a bit of space to accommodate cargo at the rear.
Comparing this instance of the Rolls-Royce Wraith two-door station wagon to the camouflaged prototype, which also has a station wagon, you can see some design differences. For example, in a camouflaged car, a white line passes through the taillights, and in the one with a red body, the lights are of the same color. The shape of the vents is the same, but the location is slightly different.
It is currently unclear when a generic version of the Wraith model may appear. Rolls-Royce is currently announcing the launch of the next generation of its Ghost sedan on September 1st, so expect that Rolls-Royce Wraith Shooting Brake debut after that. Rumor has it that the two-door station wagon is being created specifically for the company’s wealthy client looking for a more practical performance of the Wraith coupe.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Rolls-Royce presented the Dawn convertible in the Silver Bullet version. The car is dedicated to the “roaring 1920s” and will be released in a very small batch of 50 copies.
