The 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith is a large luxury coupe that is so immensely powerful and expensive that it occupies a class all by itself. Like other Rolls-Royces, the Wraith is sold in a single trim level (though this year's Black Badge variant opens this to interpretation somewhat) with several available features packages. It also offers many unique stand-alone options that will leave spectators gasping at the opulence.
Under the Wraith's expansive hood is a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 that develops a titanic 624 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque (nudged to 642 lb-ft for Black Badge models). It drives the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission that pulls in GPS data to select the optimal gear for upcoming road curves.
The list of standard features is substantial, including an air suspension, front and rear parking sensors, front massaging seats, four-zone climate control, power-closing rear-hinged doors and adaptive xenon headlights that angle-adjust to compensate for the weight of passengers. The list of "normal" options includes adaptive cruise control, an upgraded sound system and a fixed-glass roof.
The more unusual extras are the ones that will have onlookers salivating. The Starlight headliner, for instance, incorporates 1,340 fiber-optic lights sewn into the leather headliner to simulate the night sky (pay extra and you can specify the exact constellations). Or the Canadel Paneling option, with the wood grain veneer angled precisely at 55 degrees and book-matched so the trim on the left and right side of the car is perfectly mirrored. Or the rich, deep lambswool floor mats that provide a relaxing place to rest your tired feet.
As usual, if you dream it, Rolls will build it. If the paint color you want isn't one of the dozens of shades available, simply tell the artists what you desire and they will match it. Want a two-tone green exterior paired with an orange-and-white Creamsicle interior? No problem, Rolls has done it all, however questionable the taste. Use Edmunds' excellent shopping tools to build the one-of-a-kind 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith of your dreams.
