The Rolls-Royce Wraith may be the showpiece that demonstrates what the modern incarnation of the famous marque can do in th engineering as well as style departments, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. At least, that's what car customizer SPirit OF ECstasy (SPOFEC) seems to think as it offers its Wraith upgrade package for the luxury coupe.

Named after the famous Rolls-Royce hood ornament, SPOFEC is a German company that specializes in bespoke modifications of current production Rollers. In the case of the Wraith, it offers a package of body and engine mods aimed at improving not only the aesthetics, but also aerodynamics and engine performance.

For the bodywork, SPOFEC offers carbon composite replacement components, such as the bumper, tail end, and rocker panels, which are designed to give the Wraith a more imposing, aggressive appearance while blending into the existing body lines and enhancing the aerodynamics from the grille to the new boot lid spoiler lip.

Under the bonnet, the SPOFEC Wraith package enhances the 6.6-liter V12 engine with a new performance kit featuring a processor-controlled plug-and-play N-TRONIC module for the engine electronics, and an auxiliary control unit with custom-mapped injection and ignition for greater pressure. This squeezes out another 85 bhp (62.5 kW) for a grand total of 717 bhp (527 kW) and 727 ft/lb (986 Nm) of torque.

The result is a tweak of the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration to 4.2 seconds, though electronic limiting keeps the top speed at 155 mph (250 km/h).

The Wraith package also boasts a stainless-steel sports exhaust about 5 kg (11 lb) lighter than the production version that SPOFEC claims improves engine performance while using an actively controlled butterfly valve for a throatier soundtrack that can be controlled from the cockpit.

Another feature is a modification for the Wraith's suspension operated by a control module that lowers the car around 40 mm when traveling below 87 mph (140 km/h) and raises it again at higher speeds. Meanwhile, behind the SPOFEC SP1 wheels with ten double spokes offset in two planes are carbon-ceramic vented discs that trim the weight by 38 kg (84 lb) while optimizing handling, stopping power, and fade resistance.

They made it even uglier.

Shouldn't that be "lower" the car 40mm above 87mph? Raising the car will increase the turbulence underneath.
