The world will stand still at this year’s Festival of Speed as the  newest model in the leading super-luxury marque’s stable, Wraith,  dominates the famous


Hillclimb during the Supercar Run. The  most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history, Wraith will be on  familiar turf, with the Home of Rolls-Royce within sight of Goodwood House.

Goodwood Festival of Speed

At the heart of Wraith lies hallmark Rolls-Royce attributes of  luxury, refinement and hand‑craftsmanship, but the new model, from the  world’s leading super-luxury marque, also presents a unique character  defined by power, style and drama. The elegant fastback design hints  at the dynamic prowess: 624 bhp/465kW, 800 Nm from 1,500 rpm: 0-60 mph  in 4.4 seconds (0‑62 mph in 4.6 seconds). The ultimate gentlemen’s  gran turismo, Wraith can be seen between Hillclimbs in the Supercar Paddock.

In addition, Rolls-Royce will have a significant presence at  this year’s Festival of speed, including:

Centenary Alpine Trial ‘Works Team’. Having  successfully completed the 1800-mile Centenary Alpine Trial two weeks  ago, Rolls-Royce is delighted to present the ‘Works Team’ that joined  47 Silver Ghosts – many over 100 years old ­– on this historic and  challenging event. The original event led commentators to declare that  Rolls-Royce built the ‘Best Car in the World’. In celebration, the  original 1913 ‘Radley Car’ and the new 2013 Alpine Trial Centenary  Ghost will travel up the Hillclimb side by side four times each day.

Moving Motor Show. Rolls-Royce is providing invited  guests with the opportunity to drive a brand new Rolls-Royce Phantom  or Rolls-Royce Alpine Trial Centenary Ghost around the Goodwood Estate  during the Moving Motor Show on Thursday 11 July. A new Rolls-Royce  Wraith will be on static display on the Rolls‑Royce stand throughout  the weekend.

Soapboxes. The return of the Soapbox Challenge, in  celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Speed, would  not be complete without the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars team. The Company’s  two four-wheeled gravity racers, until recently on display at the Home  of Rolls-Royce, will be taking part on Saturday and Sunday.

Course Car. The Course Director’s car this year will  be a Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, resplendent with race lights and  Goodwood decals. The car will be seen between each Hillclimb Run  throughout the weekend.

A fleet of Rolls-Royce motor cars will also be evident in the  Goodwood area during the Festival of Speed, with invited guests being  conveyed in luxury from the Company’s manufacturing plant and head  office on the south-eastern corner of the Goodwood Estate.
