RACE!, a tuner from South Africa recently put together a special Rolls-Royce Wraith with the help of a body kit from the guys over at SPOFEC, a subsidiary of Novitec. The SPOFEC guys have long specialized in creating bespoke, sporty, aggressive body kits for Rolls-Royce models, a risky business without a doubt. Usually, customers of Rolls-Royce cars don’t pay attention to such contraptions, as they can order their cars as personalized as they can possibly dream. However, the Goodwood plant can’t offer exterior tuning packages so the tuner might be onto something here.
The Wraith in question here received all the bells and whistles a SPOFEC model can get and the South African tuner was more than glad to install them for one of their customers. The front bumper was replaced, new side skirts were added to the mix, the ride height was lowered and the wheels were exchanged with a pair from Novitec’s own offering.
While on some cars the lowered ride height and the bigger wheels might completely destroy the ride quality, we’re guessing it’s not the case for the Wraith. That’s because Rolls-Royce’s magic carpet ride system should make sure you get to your destination in plenty of comfort, regardless. As for the engine, no word was said of any kind of upgrade, even if the tuner that put all of this together goes by the name RACE!.
That means, the sportiest model from Goodwood still relies on a 6.6-liter V12 with two turbochargers making 632 HP and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. That’s enough to send this 5.200 lbs monster up to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. Yup, this is no slouch even in standard guise.
