2017 Rolls Royce Wraith – 2-door luxury

By

Rolls Royce is a name synonymous with quality, luxury and style. The 2017 Wraith promises to uphold that tradition. The 2017 Rolls Royce Wraith is similar to the Ghost, but perhaps could be described as the ‘sporty’ version (if there could ever be a truly sporty Rolls Royce). It’s slightly shorter than the Ghost, and therefore more nimble and slightly quicker.

2017 Rolls Royce Wraith Release date

The new 2017 Rolls Royce Wraith should be available in the showrooms come late 2016.

2017 Rolls Royce Wraith release date: late 2017

2017 Rolls Royce Wraith Price

This is where things get interesting; the ‘base’ price is in the region of $305,000 (wow), but it is very easy to push that to almost double if you go through the option boxes when you order it; you can quite easily find yourself spending a further $300,000.

2017 Rolls Royce Wraith Redesign and changes

The Wraith is built upon the same platform as the Ghost and the Dawn – the BMW 7 Series. The car is full of retro features such as powered coach doors (or as we may call them, suicide doors) and simple front end; rectangular headlights and plain (but striking grille).

2017 Rolls Royce Wraith Specs

It measures just over 17’ in length (204”) and is powered by a 6.6 liter, twin turbo V12 which produces 624 BHP; enough power to see the Wraith hit sixty in 4.4 seconds and go on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH. It’s no slouch.

Power is sent to the wheels via an 8-speed ZF transmission, and economy comes in at 13 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway (but then if you have $300,000+ for a car, you’re probably not that concerned about mileage).

2017 Rolls Royce Wraith Interior

Inside the cabin is where the Rolls Royce really turns it on; of course it’s sumptuous and luxurious, filled with high grade leather and solid wood inserts, but you can pretty much have whatever you want, even if it’s not officially listed as an extra, there is a good chance that Rolls Royce will fit it for you on a special request.

One such extra is the Starlight headliner, a system of fiber optic lighting in the headlining to replicate the stars in the sky, or of course, you could go for the real thing and have a full glass roof with a leather sun blind, it really is a magical list of modern technology and traditional craftsmanship.

Just be wary of the prices for the options, they can soon rack up!
