Slightly similar to the Rolls Royce’s smaller sedan – Ghost, the 2014 Rolls Royce Wraith features almost the same 6.6 liter, twin turbo V12 but increased up to 624 bhp and 590 lb ft of torque and paired to the eight speed automatic transmission and air suspension. The 2014 Wraith is 17 ft long, quite long, even longer than Continental GT and CL600.
The 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith has been equipped with a large and classical steering wheel and thicker rim. Also, a fact worth sharing is the absolutely smooth craft and engineering which have contributes to the absolute audible stillness. Rolling in this vehicle will give you an impression similar to flying as the passengers would not to be able to feel any of the road shock and neither hear any outside noise.
Differently styled and equipped with a pantheon grille of 1.8 inches from the front fascia, the Wraith is very distinct from the Ghost model, the lower intakes including smooth chrome accents while the LED strips under the headlights offer a more serious look.
The amazing air resistance has been achieved through the acceleration system which features a steam turbine. Also, the V12 is able to generate lumps of torque up to 6,000 rpm. Another contributor to the surprising aerodynamics would be the special exterior design of the car.
Able to reach up to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, the performance of the latest Wraith is quite incredible, raising the top speed to 155mph. Even more incredible if we take into account the fact that the entire cars weights 5200 pounds. However, it has been designed in such a way as to obtain the absolutely best results despite the over regular weight for an efficiently aerodynamic car.
Phillip Harnett, the product manager of Rolls-Royce, has recently states that the Wraith represents the latest approach of the brand: daring and restless. The cars that are going to be released in the future will actually be inspired from this astonishing accomplishment. Also, the product manager has declared that the upcoming model includes a very smart cruise control which is able to speed and slow depending on the bends and curves. The extremely hi tech kit is ready to guide through the voice control and touch control interface or using the head up display and night vision.
The starting price of 2014 rolls-Royce Wraith has been settled at $284,900 and it most likely that the best selling figures to be obtained in the United States. However, latest charts show that the drivers most interested in the Rolls-Royce cars are the Chinese who seem to be wealthy enough to afford the exclusive, yet expensive, pleasure of driving the astonishing vehicles.
