“The most powerful Rolls-Royce ever!”
For those in search of a world-class automobile that is as unique as they are, the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith is a good place to start…and stop. This is one of the most customizable cars on the planet. How far can you go in creating your own version of the 2017 Wraith? How about starting with a choice of not one, or two, or three but four Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornaments. An under-lit edition starts at about $5,000. A gold plated option will add slightly over $10,000 to the price. That’s just the start.
Go Big or Go Home
With the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith, it’s go big or go home. It starts with its substantial MSRP of about $350,000 for a base model. This is a large, heavy automobile that is deceptively quick. It weighs in at a bulky 5,380 pounds but also is powered by a muscular 6.6 liter twin-turbo V-12 engine. The power plant produces an impressive 624 hp, 590 lb-ft of torque that delivers an even more impressive 0 to 60 time of 4.4 seconds. This is Rolls-Royce’s most powerful automobile. It is a private luxury jet on wheels. With the company’s deep roots in the aerospace industry, this may not be accidental.
The Wraith is a car of substance in almost every sense of the word. It delivers an exceptionally solid, comfortable ride, with surprising acceleration. It is an automobile that is crafted for those who crave opulence and luxury.
The Body of a Champion
The 2017 Wraith sports the distinctive Rolls-Royce grille and broad front end topped with the almost-ever present iconic hood ornament. We say “almost” because the ornament cleverly disappears at the push of a button. This is a pretty significant feature when you’ve invested in that gold-plated version. Unique rear hinged cabin doors swing open from the front and conveniently close automatically. It is the back half of the Wraith, however, that provides the design drama. The rear window and deck slopes stylishly in a fashion that will remind some of the fastback editions of the 70’s muscle cars. Front to back, the Wraith displays the muscular body of a champion.
An Interior of Comfort and Amenities
The 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith welcomes you inside with a wealth of luxuries and attention to detail you can only get from a handcrafted automobile. Inlaid wood, hand-stitched leathers, and touches of polished chrome create an environment even the most discriminating buyer will appreciate. Above, an optional unique Starlight headliner adds a certain ambiance with some 1,300 tiny LED lights. Below, soft lambs wool carpeting is at your feet. Of course, the Wraith offers all the latest technological advances including electronic driver assist, an innovative camera system, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. There are certainly just enough Double-R logos inside to remind you and your passengers you are in the cabin of a legendary automaker.
Rolls-Royce says it takes about 450 hours to build and craft each Wraith it produces. It shows. No detail is too small, no amenity overlooked. The list of interior and exterior options are extensive. If you desire a unique automobile that suits your personality, consider the bold styling of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith. After all, an automaker that offers its vehicles in a choice of 44,000 paint hues and four hood ornament options obviously wants you to be satisfied.
