Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

1. Dimensions

But don’t kid yourself, this beauty doesn’t pretend to be a sports car; that would be vulgar. What it does offer is a surprising amount of involvement for something that feels as long as a U.S. Navy destroyer.

2014-Rolls-Royce-Wraith-10.jpgFrom stem to stern the Wraith measures 17 feet, three inches. It’s nearly six feet, six sinches feet wide and stands just shy of five feet tall. Its wheelbase exceeds 10 feet and its unladen curb weight tops 5,200 pounds. From the driver’s seat the car’s hood stretches out for what seems like miles. In short, don’t expect this vehicle to feel like a Miata.

All of this bulk provides a spacious interior that’s wide and cushy. It’s even got a back seat that can actually accommodates life-sized adults, which is unusual for a two-door automobile. Thanks to its generous proportions the Wraith’s got buckets interior volume and even more road presence.

    Ugh I don’t get it. Why would you buy one of these things ever. They are so ugly.
