The 2019 Rolls-Royce Wraith is a coupe derived from the Ghost sedan, but it has its own distinct—some might say sporting—personality. Rolls tradition abounds, with rear-hinged power doors, the available Starlight headliner, and an array of options that can launch the already-lofty base price into high orbit.
Whereas Rolls-Royce’s sedans–such as the Ghost and the range-topping Phantom–are intended to be driven by your chauffeur, the Wraith is for those who’d enjoy driving themselves. With a 624-hp version of the Ghost’s V-12 and a shorter wheelbase, the Wraith is quicker and more nimble than its sedan sibling, yet still provides lightly weighted steering and a gently controlled ride. The air suspension soaks up even dramatic bumps without much disturbance to those luxuriating inside the Wraith’s cabin. Opt for the Black Badge model and Rolls-Royce will turn up the engine’s torque and tweak the suspension and transmission tuning for a slightly sportier driving experience.
