LONDON, England - The Rolls-Royce Wraith, the most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce yet, is available to download for free in Forza Motorsport 5, exclusively for Xbox One.

Available to owners of Forza Motorsport 5 as a free download, the Wraith allows players to drive, explore and experience the super-luxury vehicle in "unprecedented visual realism", reports video game developers Turn 10 studios.

According to Turn 10 Studios: "Forza Motorsport 5 features an all-new graphics engine, created exclusively for Xbox One, delivering physically based material rendering that re-creates the real-life characteristics of thousands of unique materials.

"Coach doors open to reveal a contemporary interior complete with expanses of wood and leather detailing, looking real enough to touch."


The marque’s sweeping fastback design is complete with a bespoke Starlight Headliner consisting of over 1340 fibre optic lights, creating a star-studded interior, allowing players to drive in the ultimate style.

The Wraith is powered by a 459kW 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 mated to a 'satellite sided' transmission - cutting-edge technology that marries the gearbox to GPS data to ensure Wraith is always in the correct gear for tackling road conditions ahead.

Rolls-Royce general marketing manage Marc Mielau said: “We are delighted to mark a first in video game history by introducing Wraith, the most powerful Rolls-Royce made yet, into Forza Motorsport 5.

"The game will provide players with a new level of excitement by exploring the iconic features of Wraith. We are proud to present this compelling combination of refined super-luxury and poised dynamism in such a new and immersive way.”

The Wraith will be offered in 12 colour combinations, with Rolls-Royce signature two-tone options available.
