First introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Rolls Royce Wraith has spread its reach in different geographies at a steady pace. The power, style, drama and style that makes you stand apart, are some of the factors, which makes Wraith a coupe to envy. Acclaimed for having the most powerful Rolls-Royce engine, this coupe is a blend of state-of-the-art features and at par luxury. A direct competition to Bentley Continental GT, the customers will have a tough time in choosing their best match according to their personality.
Engine, mileage & variants
The luxurious coupe comes equipped with a humongous V12 6.5-litre engine that is capable enough of giving the occupants goosebumps. One can experience a massive power output of 624 hp at 5600 rpm while the peak torque measures whooping 800 Nm at 1500-5500 rpm. The impressive coupe is pretty much quick on numbers and can clock 100 kmph mark from naught in just 4.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 kmph. The massive engines are often heavy on fuel economy front but Rolls-Royce has proved this notion worng as the most powerful coupe from the house of Rolls-Royce gives a fuel economy of 10.2 kmpl.
With the aim of creating something daring, robust along with ample luxury, is the main motive for the bespoke design of Rolls Royce Wraith. The dynamic silhouette is the result of the fastback roofline that grants power, style and drama to the coupe from the elite family. The large coach doors are inspired from the 1930 European sporting and GT motor cars and the sweeping lines all over the body creates a sense of movement even at standstill in an effective manner. The overall dimensions of this grand coupe measures 5269 mm X 1947 mm X 1507 mm (L X W X H) and the wheelbase measures 3112 mm. The massive 20 inch alloy wheels with tyre size 255/45 R20 not only aggrandize the overall grand look of the coupe but also give a road hugging experience on the road.
The cabin of Wraith is a clear example of the fine craftsmanship that the designers have put in it. The coupe is a real epitome of modern design and ample cabin space filled with a variety of comfort features. From its upholstery to the small clock in the middle of the dashboard, each detail has been given special attention that makes Wraith stand out of the crowd. The book matched Canadel wood paneling running throughout the instrument panel and doors adds to the elegance inside. The optionally available ventilated and massage seats further enhance the comfort level. A 10.3- inch high definition multimedia display has been provided which serves as an interface for audio, communication and navigation controls. The boot space provided in the car is laudable and measures 470 litres, which is large enough to carry a weekend's worth of luggage.
Safety, Braking and Miscellaneous
Rolls Royce Wraith is possibly one of the most easy to handle cars you will ever lay your hands on. Thanks to its double wishbone suspension at the front coupled with multilink arrangement at the rear, which offers you a master class handling.

The other safety features include driver's assistance system, which consists of lane departure warning system, automatic high beams, rear and front parking sensors for secure driving experience in various situations.
When it comes to buying an ultimate expression of luxury, power, and attitude, Rolls Royce Wraith is the perfect choice for the ones who wish to remain on par in every sphere of life.
