British automaker Rolls-Royce has published one last teaser of the Wraith Coupe ahead of the car's debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
Though not an image of the actual vehicle, this last profile teaser clearly reveals that the Wraith is actually a fastback, and Rolls-Royce representatives go along with it.

"The purposeful fastback profile is Wraith’s defining element," said Giles Taylor, Rolls-Royce Design Director. "Inherent in the graceful line that sweeps from the top of the screen to the very rear edge is the promise of fast, yet effortless touring. Yet, perhaps my favourite aspect is the expressive gesture that comes from the side window graphic, gliding through Wraith’s glamorous coach door."

"It works with a strong sense of linear purpose from the shoulder line, which has the promise of potential like the athlete in the starting blocks. In contrast, the line that cuts through the shoulder line is a little more artful and adds that certain air of effortlessness to Wraith’s dynamic statement. In my view the most successful designs always come down to three or four lines," he added.

Set to be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Wraith Coupe will be powered by a 6.6-liter V12 twin-turbo engine with an output of approximatively 608 hp. Until then, you can check the five teasers released by Rolls-Royce below.
