Vehicle Summary

In price, the Rolls-Royce Wraith slots below the flagship Phantom, the Dawn convertible, and the long-wheelbase Ghost, but is pricier than the short-wheelbase Ghost.

Overview

The 5,380-pound rear-drive Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe comes powered by a 624-hp, 590-lb-ft of torque 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12 mated to an eight-speed automatic. All this power and weight gives this English super luxury car a poor EPA-rated fuel economy of 12/19 mpg city/highway. The Wraith Black Badge uses the same twin-turbo V-12 engine with the same horsepower rating but tuned to a more robust 642 lb-ft of torque. Rolls-Royce claims a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds for the Black Badge and 4.4 seconds for the traditional Wraith.

For a substantial $24,850, you can have the Bespoke CC (Commissioned Collection) Interior + Exterior package that includes the Horizon Interior Environment (style of interior color layout), contrast stitching, seat piping, Rolls-Royce Monogram on all headrests, treadplates, the Polished Stainless Steel package, colored steering wheel, CC external paint, and coachline. The $29,900 Wraith package features Rolls-Royce Bespoke Audio, lambswool floor mats, fixed glass roof, full choice of wheels at no additional charge, and the Driver Assistance 3 package. The Wraith is one of the most customizable vehicles in the industry, for example, owners get a choice of four optional Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornaments: solid silver ($6,675), gold-plated ($10,300), up-lit ($4,152), and illuminated ($8,025). The $15,000 optional Starlight Headliner, a Rolls-Royce exclusive, can be personalized for an extra $8,950.

Safety

The Wraith comes standard with front, side, and curtain airbags, adaptive headlights, top, side, and rear view cameras, and stability and traction control. In Motor Trend testing, the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith came to a stop from 60 mph in just 109 feet, quite a feat for a vehicle that weighs over 5,000 pounds. The optional Driver Assistance 3 package includes adaptive headlights, a head-up display that projects critical information for the driver, lane departure warning, night vision that can detect pedestrians in low-lit areas up to 300 yards, and adaptive cruise control that can maintain a selected distance from the vehicle ahead.

What We Think

In a First Drive review of the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith, we noted this is the fastest and sportiest Rolls-Royce ever made, but the Wraith still holds true to its Rolls-Royce heritage of being smooth and silent. "Unlike the Bentley Continental GT, which can feel noticeably agitated with some wheel/tire combinations, the Wraith never tries too hard to be a sports car. It is a gentleman's Gran Turismo in the truest sense of the term."

In a First Test review of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith, we explained how this behemoth of a car can keep up with some of the most popular sports cars in the market, "The Wraith hits 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. That's crazy quick for such a leviathan, especially a RWD one. Some context: The 2,445-pound Alfa Romeo 4C needs 4.1 seconds to hit 60 mph. The BMW M4 hits 60 mph in 4.0 seconds flat, as does the Camaro Z/28." At the end of our review we explained how the sportiest Rolls-Royce ever can be fun just about anywhere, even on a track, a place you would normally never see a Rolls-Royce of any kind: "Point is, I had fun out there. That's an important part of a great car - its ability to allow you to enjoy yourself no matter where you are. I've found that lately, fun at all times has become a Rolls-Royce core value."

Cool Fact

The Wraith is basically a two-door version of the Ghost and built using some of the basic hardware shared with the BMW 7 Series.
