Expensive to buy, fuel and own

Overview

The 2015 Rolls-Royce Wraith is the sportiest member of the famous high-end luxury brand’s lineup. We think it’s the best looking, too. Essentially a Rolls-Royce Ghost sedan that’s been beautifully crafted into a 2-door coupe, the Wraith boasts one of the most easily recognizable profiles on the market.

It’s also surprisingly enjoyable behind the wheel, even though it might not look too sporty at first glance. After all, the Wraith weighs in around 5,500 pounds and measures a pickup-like 207.9 inches from front to back. Those numbers typically don’t lend themselves to cars that are fun to drive.

But the Wraith packs a serious punch. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12, which puts out an amazing 624 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, all mated to a silky smooth 8-speed automatic transmission. The result is 0-to-60 in around 4.5 seconds, on its way to a lightning-fast quarter-mile time of under 13 seconds.

Don’t assume that the Wraith is all about speed and performance, however. On the contrary, this is still a high-end luxury car: a full-size luxury sedan converted into a full-size, 4-seater luxury coupe with leather and wood appointments on virtually every cabin surface. There’s even an optional Starlight headliner with 1,340 individual fiber-optic lights designed to simulate the night sky for an extra $12,500.

If that sounds like a lot, you’ll be even more amazed by the 2015 Rolls-Royce Wraith’s base price: about $295,000 including destination. It’s one of the most expensive coupes on the market, but to Rolls’ notoriously fastidious customers, little else will do.
