Speaking about the new job openings at Rolls Royce, some positions will be for manufacturing and engineering facilities of the Rolls Royce Wraith model, which is due this autumn. This announcement comes after the British company reported new expansion plans at the manufacturing plant, as they get ready to launch the latest model, Wraith.

The luxury car manufacturers are on the brink of breaking sales records for the fourth consecutive year. Sales have been steadily increasing and massive expansions have taken place in the past year during which time the company took on additional designers, craftsmen and engineers.

New RR Wraith will possess a 6.7 liter twin turbocharged V12 engine capable of 624 hp and 590 lb/ft torque. It will be mated to an 8 speed ZF automatic transmission sending power to its rear wheels. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph will be accomplished in 4.4 seconds and it will have a top speed of 250 kmph. Deliveries of the 2014 Rolls Royce Wraith will commence from fourth quarter this year. Pricing will start from €245,000 ($318,700). India too will get the Wraith later this year. For more information, scroll through the press release below.
