The All New Rolls-Royce Wraith
By Jon Derrickson on July 9, 2013
This month the all new Rolls-Royce Wraith will be arriving in select US show rooms for enthusiasts and prospective buyers to test drive. The 2013 Wraith is the namesake to the original Wraith produced in the late 1930s. The new Wraith debuted in the New York Auto Show earlier this year and awed show goers with its sleek, fastback design.
The Wraith body style may be different than you are used to from the Rolls-Royce family with a more aerodynamic design, shorter wheel base and low roof height. Under the hood the new Wraith is powered by a V12 engine with 642 brake horsepower and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Wraith will go 0-60 in around 4.4 seconds. Because it is a Rolls-Royce, it also includes amenities such as a luxurious interior, satellite aided transmission with gps mapping and sensitive speed steering.
