The Rolls-Royce Wraith was caught testing by our spies; its front-end revisions bring the coupé into line with the rest of the range

The facelifted Rolls Royce Wraith has been spied testing ahead of its introduction later this year. 

Latest spy shots caught the facelifted coupé winter testing in icy conditions near the Arctic circle, with revised front lights mirroring those we spotted earlier this year on another Wraith test mule. 

The Wraith is to be facelifted for 2017, with a series of front-end revisions.

Although the familiar face of the Dawn convertible is hidden under heavy camouflage cladding in these spy shots, it is distinguishable through the pattern. The subtle changes implemented by Rolls-Royce include a kink in the bottom edge of the headlights and gentle redesign of the front bumper. The rear remains unclad, and it's clear to see that no changes have been made there. 

The interior was also camouflaged, suggesting some revisions have been made inside.

The facelifted Wraith is almost certain to retain the 6.6-litre V12 from the outgoing model and the Dawn. Although Rolls-Royce has previously hinted at hybrid-powered models, these are most likely to appear first on the Phantom

    Mid-range petrol engine suits Vauxhall's new family-sized load-lugger well. Another refined, comfortable, easy-to-drive and attractively priced Insignia.
