The most potent and technologically advanced Rolls-Royce in history, Wraith is a car for the curious, the confident and the bold.
It’s not every day you’re given the chance to get behind the wheel of a luxury car valued at over a million dollars. So when the guys at Rolls-Royce and DABO&CO reached out a few months back and asked if I’d be interested, I laughed. Then I realized their offer was legitimate.
Here’s a short clip I put together during my memorable three-day experience behind the wheel of this beauty.
Open the coach doors and step into an inviting interior that cocoons you from the outside world.
Every detail has been meticulously designed; from the finest Phantom-grade natural grain leather to the soft wool carpets. But this is a car made for driving.
Just one look at the blood orange needle tips for the speedometer and power reserve gauge hints at Wraith’s agility, speed and refined power.
The spacious four-seat interior has been hand-built by skilled craftspeople and technicians. For the first time ever, you can choose to have Canadel Panelling in a beautiful open grain wood, throughout the cabin.
The veneer is delicately curved around the contours of the door and each piece is orientated at 55 degrees, then carefully book-matched. This creates a perfect mirror image through the centre line of the car.
The Finest Attention to Detail
Touches like the chrome bullet tips to the recessed piping on the seat panel enhance the sense of a vehicle tailored for performance. Yet this is not at the expense of comfort; as you would expect, umbrellas are included in the door frames. Should you wish to add more glamour, 1,340 fibre optics can be sewn into the headliner to create your very own star-filled sky.
The Potent Power
Wraith is the most powerful Rolls-Royce in history. Behind the deep set Pantheon grille sits a potent 6.6 litre, twin turbo-charged V12 engine. Delivering 624 bhp with 800 Nm of torque, it powers from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. Even with this formidable power, Wraith is every inch a refined Rolls-Royce with electronically controlled air suspension that creates the signature ‘magic carpet ride’.
So, that’s the incredible Rolls-Royce Wraith for you. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m no car enthusiast. I feature cars to give the blog a little more variety and also be able to rock killer outfits standing beside them.
