2014 Spofec Rolls-Royce Wraith
The Spofec brand from the Novitec Group gets its acronymic name from the famed Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament first used by Rolls-Royce in 1911.
With the Wraith, Spofec focuses on tasteful modifications in keeping with the overall aesthetic of the stock coupe. The new front bumper minimizes negative lift on the front axle, and features two front flaps which give the body a wider and lower apparance. New rocker panels feature air extractors behind the front wheel arches. The tail piece features a rear bumper and mild rear spoiler. All parts are in carbon fiber, and the front flaps and rear spoiler are optionally available in clear carbon.
Spofec has created a control module that lowers the air suspension by 40 mm in normal use, then raises it to normal height at speeds over 87 mph.
One of the most impressive options from Spofec is their carbon-ceramic high-performace brake system. The front discs measure a mammoth 15.9 inches and the rear 15.5 inches in a system that offers a total savings of 83.8 lbs of unsprung weight. Spofec promises bothe superior stopping power and fade resistance.
The car rides atop of 22" wheels with 265/35 and 295/30 Pirelli rubber front and rear.
A new plug-and-play N-Tronic module with custom mapping for injection and ignition as well as increased turbo boost increases output by 85 horses to a total of 717 hp.

(from Novitec Group Press Release) SPOFEC refines the Rolls-Royce Wraith
Exclusive design and superior performance
The Rolls-Royce Wraith is already one of the most exclusive coupes in the world when it leaves the factory. SPOFEC refines the English luxury motor car even further with custom components of the highest quality created with great love of detail.
Sporty and elegant bodywork components in concert with tailor-made 22-inch wheels give the two-door car an even more exciting appearance. The SPOFEC wheels enhance the vehicle’s driving dynamics, as do the lowered suspension, the carbon-ceramic high-performance braking system and the powerful engine tuning that boosts power output to 527 kW / 717 hp and peak torque to 986 Nm. The SPOFEC stainless-steel sports exhaust system is optionally available with an electronic sound management feature.
The name of the SPOFEC brand is a sort of acronym of Spirit of Ecstasy, the name of the hood ornament of the English luxury motor cars. The German company is dedicated exclusively to the customization of the current Rolls-Royce vehicles from Goodwood.
The SPOFEC team specializes in tastefully refining a motor car as precious as the Rolls Royce Wraith. To this end, the designers developed equally stylish and aerodynamically efficient bodywork components that blend perfectly with the lines of the coupe. All SPOFEC design components are manufactured from high-grade carbon fibers to achieve a perfect fit as well as a flawless surface and paint finish quality.
The SPOFEC front bumper replaces the production bumper in its entirety. Its sophisticated shape gives the Wraith an even more distinctive face. What’s more: it also minimizes negative lift on the front axle. The two front flaps, which upgrade the grille in the bumper and make the Rolls-Royce visually seem even wider, are optionally available in a decidedly sporty version with visible carbon-fiber structure.
The SPOFEC rocker panels give the Wraith a lower and longer visual stance. The stylized air extractors behind the front wheel arches and the sweeping light-catching contour augment the sporty look.
The tail end is likewise more athletic in appearance thanks to a subtle spoiler made of clear-coated carbon fibers and the SPOFEC rear bumper that replaces its production counterpart. A spoiler lip on the trunk is an additional factor in achieving a perfect aerodynamic balance.
The SPOFEC SP1 wheels, tailor-made for the Wraith, are a crucial design element. Their unusual styling with ten double spokes offset in two planes is particularly striking in the black version with polished surfaces. These wheels of sizes 9Jx22 at the front and 10.5Jx22 on the rear axle are alternatively available in silver, matte black or titanium. SPOFEC technology partner Pirelli supplies the perfect high-performance tires in sizes 265/35 ZR 22 and 295/30 ZR 22. Like all SPOFEC components, this tire/wheel combination is independently safety-certified.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith is equipped with an air suspension. The SPOFEC suspension specialists developed a special control module for the air suspension that lowers the ride height of the two-door car by about 40 millimeters at speeds below 140 km/h. At higher speeds the body automatically reverts to its original level.
The SPOFEC carbon-ceramic high-performance braking system with vented discs measuring 405 x 30 and 395 x 38 millimeters respectively offers total weight savings of 38 kilograms over the production brakes. And the lower unsprung masses optimize handling in addition. Above all, the SPOFEC brakes deliver increased stopping power and fade resistance.
The SPOFEC performance kit for the 6.6-liter V12 engine of the Rolls-Royce Wraith offers even further elevated driving dynamics. It involves the integration of a processor-controlled plug-and-play N-TRONIC module into the engine electronics. The auxiliary control unit features custom mapping for injection and ignition, and increases the boost pressure of the twin-turbo engine.
The modifications result in a maximum power output increased by 62.5 kW / 85 hp and a peak torque that grows by 186 Nm. With 527 kW / 717 hp and 986 Nm, the further refined luxury coupe sprints from 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. The top speed remains an electronically limited 250 km/h.
In harmony with the eight-speed automatic transmission, the SPOFEC performance kit not only translates into improved performance: the even more superb power delivery of the V12 provides an even more superior driving experience on the road with unchanged exemplary eco-friendliness.
The SPOFEC stainless-steel sports exhaust systems for the Rolls-Royce Wraith are up to five kilograms lighter than the production system. What’s more: they also optimize the engine’s power delivery while producing a sportier but never obtrusive exhaust note. The version with actively controlled butterfly valve offers an electronic sound management feature that lets the driver switch the engine sound between subtle and powerfully sporty via remote control from the cockpit.
