2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith review: Our expert's take

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:
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.

Make Sure You Demand To See The CarFax !

I bought a car from StL Motorcars last year before Holman bought the dealership. I paid $180,000 only to find out afterwards that the engine had been replaced after only a few thousand miles!! I had purchased 30 cars there over 20 years and yet no one told me. I didn’t even think about asking for a CarFax after buying so many cars there, why would I have to ?

Most beautiful interior

I purchased this car and was quite unsure at first. From owning Ferrari’s, and Lamborghinis, but this was my first car to provide that much luxury. The dealership was pretty bad (they overlooked me because I was young but I was still an multi millionaire) but this is about the car. The starlight headliner makes this car for me. I love the little things in this car like the smell of the ac and the umbrella in the door. This car is a must have

5.0

Most beautiful car I have ever seen or owned.

This car is more beautiful then in the pictures that were posted. We had no idea that the inside ceiling had hundreds of LED lights to simulate stars in the sky. Also, the Rolls Royce hood ornament is crystal, and lights up when you unlock the car!
