Rolls-Royce Wraith review

p90133139_highres_rolls-royce-wraith.jpg

Incredible road presence, sumptuous interior, (largely) effortless driving experience

Not as sporting as you might hope. A wee bit big, too

What is it?

The Wraith is billed as “the most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history”. The first bit is easily dealt with: a turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 sends 624bhp to the rear wheels, ten per cent more power than you’ll find even in the new Phantom and Cullinan.

As for the most dynamic? Well, you’d argue that’s not difficult, given Rolls has long mastered the art of hefty, comfy cars that are designed to soothe not scintillate. But the Wraith is based upon the Ghost limo, so it’s hardly got a sporting chassis at its core, though its rear axle has been widened and its wheelbase shortened.

“The car’s suspension has also been tuned to minimise body roll and discreetly amplify feedback when cornering,” says Rolls, “while steering weight is heavier at high speeds and lighter at low speeds adding to the spirited drive.”

Achieving those high speeds ought to be a doddle; with two turbos, the Wraith has a ginormous 590lb ft of torque available from 1,500rpm, enough to shift its 2.4 tonnes to 60mph in 4.4secs. Quicker than hot hatches with not dissimilar power-to-weight ratios, and quite startling to experience in something with lambs’ wool floor mats.

Indeed, it may be the most sporting Rolls ever, but it’s still dripping in luxury. There are four finely proportioned seats, sumptuous materials across most surfaces and head- and leg-room aplenty, even in the rear. Don’t worry, the front seats electrically whirr forward to allow anyone climbing into the back some extra grace.

Its £250,000 starting price really is just the start, too. Few Rolls-Royces leave the Goodwood factory without first having been made fully bespoke to their buyer’s needs; colour-matched inside and out, fibre-optic star headlining fitted, the full works. Half the fun of having a Rolls-Royce isn’t driving it (or being driven in it), but the buying process itself.

The Wraith is now one of the oldest Rolls-Royces on sale, having arrived in 2013. The Ghost it’s spun from landed in 2010, and its drop-top sibling – the Dawn – started production in 2015. While the new-generation Phantom is sold only as a saloon, the Wraith is the car of choice if you want your Rolls-Royce to take the form of a two-door coupe.

Our choice from the range

p90133149_highres_rolls-royce-wraith.jpg

What's the verdict?

Take Rolls-Royce’s billing too close to face value – by approaching the Wraith expecting a sports car – and you’ll be disappointed. Expect an ever so slightly sharpened Rolls, though, and you’ll discover a beguiling car that never fails to feel special. Unless you go looking too hard for BMW bits.

In objective terms, the Wraith has fallen a bit behind on tech and is tangibly a generation behind the new Phantom and Cullinan, not to mention other luxury car rivals. It’s also far too big and heavy to feel anything like approaching a driver’s car, something that must be commented upon given Rolls has pointed out that’s (kinda) what it’s meant to be.

But it’s a Rolls-Royce. Objectivity is rendered pointless by quarter-million-pound price tags, and as an automotive experience, the Wraith is matched only by other Rolls-Royces. It’s an experience all car enthusiasts should try and get a taste of at least once, and if you’re lucky enough to have the money and space to add a Rolls to your collection, there’s a considerable amount to recommend choosing the one that looks and feels most sporting.

2020 rolls royce wraith front

Select a year

  • Lows Poor fuel economy, lacks some advanced safety tech.
  • Verdict With its handcrafted cabin and peerless attention to luxury, the Rolls-Royce Wraith is a grand tourer that brings singular opulence to the driving experience.

What's New for 2020?

For the 2020 model year, Rolls-Royce introduces the Wraith Eagle VIII. Inspired by the pilots who made the world's first nonstop transatlantic flight in 1919, this limited-edition model features a gray two-tone exterior. The cabin's headliner is embroidered to reflect the celestial arrangement of the sky at the time of the legendary flight. Only 50 of these coupes will be produced.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

The price of the 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith starts at $332,000.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith is sold in a single trim with lavish amenities. The car rides on 20-inch wheels. Its headlights are both adaptive and auto leveling. The list of standard exterior features includes rain-sensing windshield wipers, LED taillights, and power-folding side mirrors with an auto-dimming feature. Those perched in the front row enjoy seats with eight-way power adjustability, and every chair in the cabin is heated to boost comfort in colder weather. All models come with dual-zone automatic climate control in both rows, as well as amenities such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a power-adjustable steering column. On the tech front, the Wraith's list of equipment includes an 18-speaker stereo and a Wi-Fi hotspot. This grand tourer also comes with driver-assistance features such as parking sensors and a lane-departure warning system.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Wraith is powered by a prodigious twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12. This engine produces 624 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque, and it's mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All Wraith coupes are rear-wheel drive. This Rolls-Royce delivers handling that's poised and controlled. Its steering is lightly weighted, and its air suspension is calibrated to prevent bumps and jolts from jostling the car's passengers. We estimate that the Wraith will sprint to 60 mph in about 4.3 seconds .

2020 rolls royce wraith

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

According to EPA estimates, the 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith achieves a rating of 12 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. For reference, the Bentley Continental GT delivers much better fuel economy, offering 16 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe seats four people, with a bucket seat at each corner. The cabin has an artisanal feel and an aesthetic that's simultaneously old world and modern. The center stack is adorned with a pair of sleek, circular air vents, and the front seats have a massaging feature that can soothe sore muscles on long drives. With the 2020 Wraith, you get 17 cubic feet of cargo capacity. As such, this grand tourer offers more room for your stuff than the Bentley Continental GT coupe, which provides just 13 cubes. The Wraith's options list includes ventilated front seats along with a bevy of upholstery choices and interior finishes.

2020 rolls royce wraith

Infotainment and Connectivity

All Wraiths are equipped with a navigation system and an 18-speaker stereo. Bluetooth and audio streaming are standard as well as Wi-Fi connectivity and real-time traffic.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the 2020 Wraith an overall crash-test rating. This Rolls-Royce comes with a respectable selection of driver-assistance features designed to prevent crashes. However, there are a couple notable omissions: A blind-spot-warning system isn't available, and neither is forward-collision mitigation. Key safety features include:

  • Standard lane-departure warning
  • Standard front and rear parking sensors
  • Available adaptive cruise control

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Rolls-Royce offers longer limited and powertrain warranty coverage than Bentley and Aston Martin .

  • Limited warranty covers four years or unlimited miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or unlimited miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

Sebastian Toma profile photo

Sebastian's love for cars began at a young age. Little did he know that a career would emerge from this passion (and that it would not, sadly, involve being a professional racecar driver). In over fourteen years, he got behind the wheel of several hundred vehicles and in the offices of the most important car publications in his homeland. Full profile

A LEGACY OF POWER AND SPEED

A collection car inspired by the remarkable ventures of Thunderbolt — a lightning-quick vehicle that broke the land-speed record three times. As one of the most powerful models in Rolls-Royce history, Black Badge Wraith embodies Thunderbolt’s intrepid legacy of speed.    The collection derives its name from the third iteration of Thunderbolt. Beneath the blazing sun, it was difficult to detect when Thunderbolt’s aluminium body passed the timing equipment. The ingenious solution was to paint a large black arrow and yellow circle motif on its side — ensuring the vehicle’s visibility at high speeds.

A COLLECTION CAR INSPIRED BY THUNDERBOLT’S THIRD AND FINAL LAND-SPEED RECORD

On 16 September 1938, Captain George Eyston and his racecar Thunderbolt sought to reclaim the land-speed record, having lost the prized title to John Cobb just a mere day prior. For this third attempt, Thunderbolt’s fin was tactically removed, bestowing the vehicle with a perfectly streamlined body.

ATTEMPTING LAND-SPEED GLORY ON A SALT SPEEDWAY

The record-breaking attempt took place on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA. Forged from the remains of prehistoric Lake Bonneville, its vast crusted planes provide a clear path for those accelerating at extraordinary speeds.

PREPARING FOR VICTORY WITH A PAINTED PATH

Before Thunderbolt’s power was unleashed, a black guideline was painted along the salt speedway, ensuring Eyston stayed on course while Thunderbolt rapidly gained speed.

TAKING A SEAT BEHIND THUNDERBOLT’S WHEEL

With the high-speed undertaking about to commence, Eyston climbed into Thunderbolt’s club-armchair — his most trusted and preferred driving seat. The Club leather armrests of Black Arrow reference Eyston’s seat of command, displaying visible lifelines and subtle, natural markings.

POWERING THE V12 ENGINE

The moment of truth was in sight. Eyston ignited Thunderbolt’s engine — the immensely powerful Rolls-Royce V12 ‘R’. In celebration of our time-honoured driving force, a technical engraving of Wraith's V12 engine spans the collection car’s fascia. The design reveals a pure aluminium surface, reminiscent of Thunderbolt’s original aluminium body.

A BLURRED SIGHT OF UNPRECEDENTED PACE

The countdown begins. Thunderbolt took off in an instant, appearing a blur as it raced across the Bonneville Salt Flats. Shifting from Celebration Silver to Black Diamond, Black Arrow’s exclusive Bespoke Gradient Paint represents Thunderbolt’s unprecedented speed and motion-blurred image.

a victorious time. THUNDERBOLT CLAIMS A NEW LAND-SPEED RECORD

Thunderbolt swiftly reached a maximum speed of 357.497 mph, triumphantly breaking the land-speed record and reclaiming its position as master of speed.

As this historic day faded to night, the stars above the Bonneville Salt Flats — meticulously replicated in the Constellation Headliner — beamed down in celebration.    Black Arrow preserves a moment in time, a historic endeavour of trial and triumph.

A FAREWELL TO WRAITH

As the marque embarks on a bold new electric future, Wraith’s chapter within the Rolls-Royce model range comes to a triumphant end. Black Arrow commemorates the coupé’s remarkable legacy and formidable powerhouse engine.

‘This magnificent final V12 coupé Collection captures both the significance and spirit of Wraith through the marque’s hallmark and peerless Bespoke capabilities. A fitting finale for this transformative motor car.’

Rolls-Royce Wraith facelift spied on test

The last round of upgrades done to the Ghost will now be carried over to the Wraith as Rolls-Royce prepares a facelift for the latter model. The luxurious two-door model is due for a facelift and is undergoing final tests in Germany, as seen in these spy shots.

The Wraith facelift will feature revised LED headlights with surrounding daytime running lights, restyled front and rear bumper and new wheel designs options. Additionally, Rolls-Royce may incorporate a few changes from the Wraith’s convertible version, the Dawn. Stuff like the new suspension setup, wood veneers and trim options could be added to the Wraith.

Mechanically, the Wraith facelift will remain the same which means it will continue to be powered by the existing V12 engine mated to an 8-speed automatic ZF gearbox. Thanks to 624bhp on tap the 0-100 kmph sprint takes just 4.5 seconds.

Expect Rolls-Royce to unveil the Wraith facelift later this year.

Rolls-Royce Wraith Series II (facelift) spied for the first time - IAB Exclusive

facebook

New styling will be similar to the RR Ghost Series II and RR Dawn.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II (facelift)  debuted at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and two years hence, its coupe version - the Rolls Royce Wraith , is readying for a facelift. The Rolls Royce Wraith Series II (facelift) has been spied testing for the first time, by Benedikt Paul in Germany. The coupe version in its original avatar premiered at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and Rolls-Royce would be planning to put the facelifted model on sale this year.

Rolls-Royce Wraith Series II (facelift) spy shot

The changes in the facelifted Rolls-Royce Wraith will be similar to the Ghost Series II. These include re-shaped LED headlamps with surrounding LED daytime running lights, re-sculpted bumpers and new wheel designs. Additionally, Rolls-Royce may incorporate a few changes from the Wraith's convertible version - Rolls-Royce Dawn  - that was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. One of these changes could be the new suspension setup of the Dawn. Inside, the updates may include new wood veneers and trim options.

The engine and transmission will most likely remain unchanged. Powering the only available Rolls-Royce coupe would be the familiar 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 engine good for 624 bhp (632 PS) and 800 Nm (590 lb.-ft.) of torque. Power would be sent to the rear-wheels via the ZF-sourced 8HP90, Satellite Aided 8-speed automatic transmission.
