The amazingly refined 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith!
From the Outside (Part I)
Attaining lavishness in a car is in itself a challenge few cars can come up to and Rolls-Royce in this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith has outraised this challenge to include modern classic good looks, an opulent interior, a hugely powerful engine and other standard, optional and safety features rarely, if ever, to be found altogether in a vehicle of today.
This 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith includes the attributes of elegance, refinement, fine craftsmanship and supremely sporting spirit in an unprecedented way, easily adds options worth tens of thousands of dollars to a base price of around $300,000 and makes both its massive price tag and huge size appear inconsequential at speed.
In external looks this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith follows the well known design vocabulary and style for all Rolls-Royce vehicles including those of its close relatives, the Ghost sedan and forthcoming Dawn convertible and shares with them its elegantly muscular look. The rest of the external features of this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith are defined by rectangular headlights on either side of a simple-but-bold grille, slab sides, and a bluff, neatly sculpted tail.
Negating its relative the Ghost sedan, the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith sets itself apart from its more formal four-door sibling with a sweeping fastback roofline and elongated C-pillars that provide an athletic counterpoint to Rolls-Royce's stately, upright radiator grille.
The design of this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith lends itself to the two-tone paint schemes used by Rolls-Royce for most of its history. There isn't much precedent, however, for the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith's fastback styling—sportier coachwork usually graces same caliber luxurious cars—but the retro-inspired slope looks good from most angles.
The rear-hinged doors of this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith, that Rolls-Royce understandably calls "coach" rather than "suicide" also give a nod to the past, but add the functional purpose of aiding more dignified entry and exit. While the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith's length stretches past 17 feet, excellent proportions mask its actual size.
Engine Performance and Ability
Most if not all luxurious cars of today are equipped with a simple and unreliable engine and this is usually considered a setback when the driver wants to sprint and accelerate and stumbles by the fact that these cars are not made for that! Rolls-Royce however is a defiantly luxurious vehicle that has a huge and powerful engine that is able to do unequaled miracles in driving.
Under the hood of this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith is nested a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12 rated at 624 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque that propels all 5,203 pounds of the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith from zero to 60 mph in a swift 4.4 seconds and like its cousin the Ghost but apparently quicker than it, the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith is built on a variant of the BMW 7-Series platform, but this relationship won't be apparent to most drivers or observers.
The 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith will charge all the way up to an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph and will permit the handling of shifting duties uniquely to an innovative ZF-sourced eight speed "satellite aided" automatic transmission that taps into GPS data to provide gear changes that are perfectly matched to the road ahead. This shifting duties handler in this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith also uses these GPS and terrain data to pre-select ideal gears for smoother performance through sharp turns, hills, and dales.
A well propagated all-time trait of Rolls-Royce is the stately ride quality which is definitely achieved in this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith through its electronically controlled air suspension. This specially-tuned air suspension with its adaptive dampers that are designed to furnish the pillow like-smooth ride that Rolls-Royce buyers have come to expect, along with extra body compliance for precise handling that belies the big coupe's nearly 5000-lbs. weight.
This all contributes to the dynamic "waftability" that Rolls-Royce wants to achieve in its cars and among them this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith. Moreover this 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith is more fuel-efficient than the larger Phantom Coupé, but the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith can't escape its significant avoirdupois or massively potent engine and The EPA estimates gas mileage come reflecting all that and at 13 mpg in the city, 21 mpg on the highway, and 15 mpg combined.
