A prototype for an updated Rolls-Royce Wraith has been spotted testing once again. And these latest photos give us a hint at the new styling we can expect for the updated model, which in Rolls-Royce tradition will likely be called the Wraith Series II.

The photos reveal that changes are only being made to the front of the car. We can see a few stylistic features inspired by the design of the new Rolls-Royce Dawn, the convertible version of the Wraith. The changes include a more aerodynamic front section and revised lights.

We aren’t expecting any powertrain updates though there could end up being some tweaks made for efficiency gains. The current Wraith benefits from a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12 engine rated at 624 horsepower. Despite the Wraith’s 5,200-pound curb weight, the big engine can glide the car to 60 mph in about 4.4 seconds and on to a governed top speed of 155 mph.

A debut for the Wraith Series II is likely to take place sometime in 2017. This means we should see the car introduced for the 2018 model year.

Stay tuned for updates as development continues.
