2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith OverviewThe Wraith attracts buyers who know understand that they are getting the best of everything out of their car. The Wraith's power is derived from a twin-turbocharged 6.6L V12 that makes a staggering 624hp, which is sent to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Despite weighing over 5000lbs the Wraith can reach 60 mph in a claimed 4.4 seconds.
But of course, no one is going to be taking their Wraith to the local drag strip to see what it can do-- the Wraith is all about sustained, high speed cruising, to which it is wonderfully suited. Thanks in part to its long wheelbase, the Wraith has one of the best rides of any car available in the U.S. Yet because of its advanced chassis, well damped suspension and 20-inch wheels, it corners without much body roll. Drivers will find that the Wraith is a wonderful place to watch the miles melt away comfortably and easily. The cruise control will even slow down for corners and speed back up when exiting them.
There's much that can be said about the Rolls-Royce Wraith's styling-- the front of the car looks upright and traditional the rear has a sloping fastback roofline that is both elegant and edgy. Rolls-Royce likes to say that the car has a touch of noir to it. Overall it's a bit of a departure from the normally conservative styling that Rolls-Royce is known for.
Being a Rolls-Royce, everything is configurable. Exteriors are available in single shades or in a myriad of 2-tone combinations. The interior color palette is also customizable, featuring a dizzying array of options including things like bespoke stitching in the leather or a buyer's choice of sixteen different types of wood paneling. Seats can be optioned with a massaging function in addition to being heated and cooled. Even the kickplates come in a choice of three different styles.
More conventional amenities are of course available as well. The standard stereo system is a 1300-watt affair that features eighteen speakers and sounds amazing. Convenience features available include a "Comfort access" system which unlocks the door at a touch of the handle, and a trunk that can be accessed via a sweep of the foot under the rear bumper. Lambswool carpeting and a roof stitched with LED lights to resemble a starry night are just a couple of the other outlandish options available on the Wraith that help to make it one of the finest luxury touring cars money can buy.
2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Model Changes
The Wraith is an all new car, though it shares a chassis with its big brother, the Rolls-Royce Ghost. While the Ghost is a luxury sedan commonly driven by chauffeurs, the Wraith caters to Rolls-Royce customers who would rather drive their cars themselves.
2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Value
The Rolls-Royce Wraith is a personal luxury coupe of the highest order. With a price tag that can easily eclipse $300,000, it is the last word in luxurious high speed cruising. Unlike the bigger sedans that are sold by the Rolls-Royce, the Wraith is smaller, sportier and features much bolder styling. Still, the Wraith should not be confused with a sports car. Despite admirable handling for its size, the Wraith is a big heavy car that makes luxury, not handling, its top priority. With such a lofty price tag, the Wraith doesn't have much direct competition. It exists for those who are looking to drive (or be driven) in the greatest level of comfort possible. It is for those for whom the Bentley Continental, Mercedes-Benz CL-Class and 6-series BMW are too average. It is for people who want the best there is to offer among the most luxurious cars available.
