2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The new Rolls-Royce Wraith is essentially a two-door version of the Ghost sedan, making it an ultra-luxury fastback coupe. Despite being a massive "gentleman's grand tourer" in Rolls-Royce's words, the new Wraith is blisteringly fast. A twin-turbo 6.6-liter V-12 is under the hood, churning out 624 horsepower and enabling the car to streak to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. A "GPS-enhanced" eight-speed automatic transmission will reportedly read the car's position, direction and speed, and then match it with the road ahead to preselect the appropriate gear. Rolls-Royce calls the technology Satellite Aided Transmission, and it debuts on the Wraith.

Exterior:
The Wraith is based on the Ghost sedan, and shares its proportions and many styling attributes. Unique is a fastback roof that features a dramatically sloped rear window, leading down to a full trunk opening. The long coupe doors are hinged at the rear, what most call "suicide" doors but Rolls-Royce refers to as "coach doors."

Interior:
A hand-built interior features real wood veneers, hand-stitched leather and a fiber-optic starlight headliner. There is only room for four, but those four have significant room to stretch out. A full complement of electronic multimedia and information systems are available, including navigation.

Under the Hood:

Under the Hood:
Wraith features a 6.6-liter V-12 engine good for 624 horsepower, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that receives input from the car's GPS-enabled navigation system. It can detect where the car is heading, what kind of terrain and traffic it may face, and can automatically preselect a gear depending on that information.

Safety:
The car features Rolls-Royce's Advanced Crash Management system, using sensors that can adjust seat belts and airbags to best protect occupants. Front, side curtain, side impact and knee bags are all standard. A head-up display is available, as is a night-vision system that can identify road hazards, pedestrians and animals with a yellow warning triangle via the head-up display.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
