Review Summary:

It's the sports car of choice for the well-heeled.

Pros

Phenomenal fit and finish

Cons

Pricier than one would expect

Looks

Being a part of the family, the Wraith is nothing short of gorgeous. Upfront, the English  houses a revised, deeper grille and even has the Spirit of Ecstasy tilted slightly forward, indicating its willingness to go. Running along the length of the vehicle, is a beautiful pinstripe – just one of many ways that fine details lend a bulk of character to the vehicle.

Feels

Pull open the traditional coach doors and the finest leather and wood trims are present to welcome you in. As you’d expect, the softest of materials have been used all over the cabin, even the carpets are as some would say “marshmallow soft!”

Engineering

For the techies, with endless buttons and switches to toy with, the Wraith is likely to come across as a piece of paradise. In addition to a massive multimedia screen and touchpad, the Wraith also offers head-up display and a wireless hotspot. However, it’s the innovative Satellite Aided Transmission that is likely to blow  your mind away. Using GPS and map data, the transmission is capable of seeing a lot further than the driver and accordingly adjusts the transmission to ensure the Wraith is in the ideal gear every step of the way.

What’s on offer?

Fitted with a mighty 6.6 litre biturbo V12 engine, the Wraith produces 624 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque! With power being sent to the rear wheels, the 2.4 tonne piece of art is propelled from 0 – 100km/h in a mere 4.6 seconds. Along with the 8 speed Satellite Aided Transmission, electronic damper control and air suspension ensure a supremely smooth and comfortable ride.

Summing it…

Offering a brilliant ride and an interior unlike any other, the Wraith is everything a Rolls-Royce should be and more. However, with prices shooting North of AED 1,300,000, the Wraith is significantly more expensive than its main rival, the Bentley Continental GT.
