Designed to make the world stand still the Rolls-Royce Wraith is the most technologically advanced and powerful car in the company’s 109 year history. The car was created with co-founder Sir Henry Royce’s words in mind ‘Take the best that exists and make it better, when it does not exist, design it.’ The Wraith is refined exuding luxury but remains faithful to the company’s signature twenties and thirties design. With a 624bhp and 6.6 litre twin turbo v12 set behind the iconic deep set pantheon grille, with a combination of electronically controlled air suspension allowing the Wraith to provide an unforgettable Rolls-Royce ‘magic carpet ride’.
The exterior offers a two-tone paint combination that can be personalised to each individual providing their own unique aesthetic. Complete with rear-hinged coach doors and the famous Spirit of Ecstasy mascot sitting pride of place at a slightly differed angle ensures the Wraith oozes luxurious elegance, without forgetting the smallest and often most important detailing. The interior cabin can be greatly appreciated with its classic Art Deco design crafted from wood panelling and natural grain leather, a chunkier steering wheel complements the car’s sportier design. For the driver’s convenience, the Satellite Aided Transmission uses navigation systems to scan the roads ahead, automatically choosing which of the eight gears are needed. The newly added Spirit of Ecstasy rotary controller allows music to be accessed simply, with the option of voice activation software for calls and recording audio-notes. The cabin is subtly decorated with 1340 individual fibre optics throughout the headlining for a statement starlight finish.
The Wraith is the epitome of refined luxury, as it should be with its £215,000 price tag. The advertising film perfectly narrates the car’s dramatic and powerful ambience with Gatsby-esque mystery and Bond like stature.
