Introduction

What Car? says...

The Rolls-Royce Wraith isn’t like other coupés. At 5.3 metres long it’s closer in size to a Victorian semi than an Audi TT, and with a starting price of almost a quarter of a million pounds, it’s a lot closer in price, too.

It’s based on the platform of the Ghost luxury car (which in turn is based on the previous generation BMW 7 Series), but the Wraith has a shorter wheelbase and a wider rear axle than both of these cars to help make it more agile.

As is the case in all Rolls-Royces, power comes from a V12 petrol engine, but here it’s been tuned to produce a mighty 624bhp – more than any other car in the company’s illustrious history.

But is the Wraith really worth its extortionate asking price? Or could you have an equally good (or perhaps even better) car for considerably less cash? Read on over the next few pages to find out.
