If you have been reading Motor Verso, you might know that we were lucky enough to test drive the Rolls-Royce Wraith some time ago. If you missed it, here is the article about the experience of shooting the Wraith and the car review. During this time we came to a conclusion that this ‘little’ Rolls is something we absolutely love. And now, I’m going to tell you why.
1. Brimming with Technology
The Rolls-Royce Wraith is an extremely advanced car in terms of tech. Although most of them are optional and not necessarily needed during your daily commutes, they’re still something to show off to your passengers.
One example is the night-vision camera, which basically aids night time driving, it is also equipped with thermal vision, which means that it highlights living things! Quite a quirk, but can be useful to some.
2. It’s in the Details
One thing worthy of note in the Rolls-Royce Wraith has got to be the attention to detail. Although Rolls-Royce may be famous for their fussiness, nothing can quite prepare you for just how amazing it is.
It is an incredibly intricate piece of automotive design, and we love Rolls-Royce for it. To put it into perspective, they only use bull hides for their upholstery as female cows are prone to stretch marks during pregnancy. Astonishing, perfectionism at its best.
3. Surprising Driving Dynamics
Admitting the fact that Rolls-Royce isn’t exactly well-acclaimed for making driver’s cars, the Wraith definitely surprised us on this one. Before actually being able to get behind the wheel and throw the car around in the corners, we were quite anxious about it, it’s heavy and it’s big, not a good recipe for a time attack machine.
However, once we put it to test, all is clear, the weight of the car is compensated by the fact that it’s powered by a 624bhp V12 engine that’s pushing out 800NM of torque. Sure, the car definitely isn’t accustomed to attacking corners, but it handles exceptionally well.
