The Rolls Royce Wraith is one of the first cars I would get if someone gave me $1 million and told me I could only spend it on cars. The Wraith in the Rolls Royce ghost species named lineup, is the coupe version of the Ghost, which was my favorite Rolls Royce once upon a time. But then they created this one and I just can’t see myself owning the Ghost anymore. I don’t know. There is something about the 2 door styling of this vehicle that makes it irresistible to my senses. Maybe it’s the fact that the doors open backwards. Maybe I’m just a selfish driver that loves to tell people, “Sorry you can’t come. There’s no more room.” All I know is that this vehicle is a car I can’t wait to get my hands on. Even if I’m only washing it.
The Rolls Royce Wraith is priced at about $320,000. This vehicle is nowhere on the cheap side of the luxury car lineup; and with reason. Rolls Royce is one of the top luxury brands in the world. It is the creator of the Phantom, a huge staple vehicle in the the companies history. This car has been owned by people like Jay Z and Lady Gaga. But that car is more for people who want to get driven around. The wraith, however, is exactly the opposite. It is meant for you to be the driver, but still experience the feeling of being in a $300,000 vehicle. The fast back shape, leather seats, starlit roof panel, and spirit of ecstasy, make this rightfully one of the most luxurious cars in the world. Maybe the most luxurious car to be a coupe.
The power under the hood is no joke either. With a 6.6L V12 engine delivering over 600hp, this is techniclally more powerful than a stock Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. That’s crazy! Guess you can’t judge a book by its cover. This glossy, perfectly sculpted, elegant, marvel of a book has some big words in the lines of its pages (I’m laughing at that metaphor right now. Haha). Anyway, the Rolls Royce is hands down the car you would choose if you wanted to show up to a party looking as luxurious as the guest that came in a Maybach, but as fun as the people that came in Porsches. Unfortunately, a lot of us won’t be pulling up in one of these for a while. The only way I’m probably going to be sitting in this car, for the time being, is when I’m detailing the steering wheel for one of my customers. That why this car is high on the list of cars that we want to wash.
