SPOFEC has developed a wide body conversion kit for the sublimely elegant Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe.

If you are a frequent visitor of our “aftermarket / tuning” category, over there you’ll find some pretty sweet kits along with others which aren’t that great. We have mixed feelings about this one and we don’t know whether the new look suits the Wraith or not. Some will say it kind of defeats the purpose of a tuning job since it takes away some of the coupe’s refinement instead of boosting it even further.

At least the aftermarket package has an appropriate name: “Overdose.” All of the custom bits and pieces added are made from carbon fiber to keep the weight down and now the body is five inches (13 centimeters) wider at the back. Those prominent wheel arches are hosting a set of 22-inch alloys while at the back there’s a carbon spoiler lip and a sportier exhaust system.

While the exterior design won’t be to everyone’s liking, the changes underneath the hood should meet the approval of most. SPOFEC fiddled with the biturbo 6.6-liter V12 engine and managed to extract an additional 85 horsepower (62.5 kilowatts) for a grand total of 717 hp (527 kW). The torque figure was also bumped from the series 590 pound-feet (800 newton meters) to a respectable 728 pound-feet (986 newton meters).

The extra punch has slashed 0.2 seconds from the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) which now takes just 4.2 seconds before the tuned Wraith tops out at the same electronically-restricted 155 mph (250 kph). SPOFEC says it did not remove the limiter in order to preserve the integrity of the tires.

This particular Rolls-Royce Wraith was also the subject of other changes, including a sportier suspension setup bringing the high-end coupe closer to the road by 40 mm. But that only happens at speeds of up to 87 mph (140 kph) as once you get passed that, the suspension will revert to the original settings.

In order to match the added oomph, SPOFEC installed carbon ceramic brakes which not only provide superior braking power, but also bring weight savings of 84 pounds (38 kilograms) compared to the standard brakes.

To top it all off, the tuner says it has numerous customization options for the interior cabin, as if Rolls-Royce doesn’t already have an extensive personalization catalog.
