If you want to encounter the ultimate Grand Tour experience with Power, Style and Drama, the Rolls Royce Wraith has got you covered. The Wraith was created for the modern day beings who find solitude in restlessness and breaths confidence in their spirit. Rolls Royce has officially launched a car that would make you drive it rather than be chauffeured around. The Wraith is not just another beefed up Phantom, it's made for those thrill seekers who want to explore the adventures in luxury and panache.
On the exterior, the Rolls Royce Wraith carries the signature family design up front. The Wraith gets similar broad signature grille up front that is inherited from the elder sibling, the Phantom. A similar design language is varied out from the side up until the c pillar, where the Wraith takes a sharp coupe-like dip towards the end. The rear, however, swoops down and blends into one solid seamless design. True to Rolls Royce lineage, the Wraith retains the coach doors which open away from the occupants and allows greater entrance or departure angles. It is a two-door coupe-like setup which has a good raised platform and with the added functionality of coach doors, the entire vehicle packs in the greatest aesthetic appeal seen on any GT car.
When it comes to Rolls Royce, one knows it will be the pinnacle of luxury. The Wraith in the similar fashion carries over the usual plush interior which is carried over in the entire series. Everything you touch or feel is made of the richest materials one can ask for. Gorgeous woodwork, softest leather upholstery across and around the cabin, and technologies nicked from high-end BMW's division, Rolls Royce glassware tucked within the seats is the pinnacle of any great GT vehicle. Added convince of a restroom inside the cabin, and a person could practically reside inside the Wraith.
Propelled by 6.6-litre, twin-turbocharged, V12 behemoth of an engine, the Wraith is the most powerful series model to carry the Rolls Royce badge. This mammoth engine produces 642bhp of power and over 800Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a smooth 8-speed transmission automatic gearbox. The transmission is so light that even with keen sense one might not be able to pick out the transition of gears when on the move. Step hard on the throttle and it is a seamless and ceaseless sensation of sheer force that will zoom to 100kmph in a mere 4.6 seconds and then ascend to an electronically limited 250kmph. Wraith delivers a truly remarkable, spirited drive unlike any other.
If one so desires to experience the zeal Wraith brings, be prepared to shell out an amount that complements the absolute luxury that the Wraith is, it costs upwards of INR 4.6 crores (ex-showroom, Delhi ). And to think of it, this is the stated ‘base costs', any slightest hint of personal customization added to the Wraith, will only rocket the prices. The Wraith as such has no direct completion in our Indian markets but does share a major rivalry with Bentley Continental GT.
