Over the years we have seen Bentley show how you can get a luxury car and make it go fast as well, which is just what Rolls-Royce has done with their 2014 Wraith. The Continental range made the competition think, so it’s nice to see that we now have a GT coupe version of the popular Ghost sedan, but does it have what it takes?
If we were to go by the official specs and interior and exterior shots courtesy of Rolls-Royce then the simple answer would be yes. However, we know that it’s always much more than that because such a car needs to have that special something.
Finding that special something will be a little hard at first because of the big wall standing between you and the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith, and that is the €245,000 starting price, which is a lot more than you would pay for the Bentley Continental.
Don’t let a little thing like price stand in your way of owning something truly remarkable because the Wraith has an engine that will go like hell but will not rip your heart out like other vehicles on the road. The V12 engine produces 624 horsepower, which is enough to propel the car from standstill to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, which is not only thanks to the engine but also the 8-speed automatic transmission as well.
We do love how Rolls-Royce describe this as the “ultimate gentleman’s gran turismo,” and they are correct because you not only get a car with beautiful sweeping lines but also a luxurious interior to help keep you in comfort at the same time.
Rolls-Royce say that first deliveries will begin in the final quarter of 2013, with final pricing for each market being made available at a later date.
