Rolls-Royce ups the luxury ante with its two-door luxo-cruiser, the buzz-worthy 2014 Wraith. Rolls-Royce revived the Wraith moniker for its new GT; think Ghost sans two doors. The British marque decided to keep its iconic no-compromise suicide doors for the coupe, complete with a wide wingspan for business-class egress. The Wraith’s fastback design is a deviation from the three-box design theme that the marque has followed for so long, and aids in the creation of a long, low coupe profile. Inside, the wood and leather are meticulously chosen and crafted, each interior being unique. Additionally, the Wraith has a starlight headliner to recreate the night sky, a decidedly elite luxury feature. So the Wraith looks the part, but how does she drive? The 624 horsepower twin-turbo V12 rockets the beast forward on adeptly-sized 21-inch wheels. It boasts a satellite-assisted transmission, using GPS to adjust the transmission predictively. Consider the Wraith as something new and different for Rolls-Royce, a car designed for the driver rather than the back seat occupants. We cannot wait to get our hands on one of these coupes, however in the mean time we have our Ghost to satisfy our Rolls-Royce urges.
