Unlike the Ghost or Dawn, Rolls-Royce Wraith is crafted specifically for the driver. The 2017 avatar of the Wraith is just as powerful and luxurious as the previous facelifts. Practically, there is almost an overabundance of options that one can use to fine-tune the car as per one's personality and preference.

The new Rolls-Royce Wraith boasts a mighty, and, of course, throaty, 6.6L 12-cylinder engine. The robust engine produces a massive 624 hp of power in addition to an impressive 605 lb-ft. of torque. The 2017 incarnation of the Wraith relies on an 8-speed automatic transmission mode for gear-shifting. It is responsive and nimble in every gear.

We Recommend

Since Rolls-Royce doesn’t leave us with a lot of choices to choose from, we are stuck with a single trim. But don’t let this discourage you. The Wraith can be customized to the finest of the details. From every material and the color used the interior of the Wraith can be altered to serve and suit your requirements and personality. At the right price, the Wraith can be a personification of you on wheels.

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Ride Handling

Rolls-Royce claims that Wraith is the quickest and the most powerful car ever crafted by them. Sitting on the driver's seat for the very first time gives you the impression of Rolls-Royce Ghost. However, the difference becomes more and more apparent as you race it. The hearty V12 engine is coupled with a satellite-backed 8-speed ZF for an impeccable performance.

The Wraith boasts precise steering, its rear-wheel-drive chassis is complemented by a well-balanced air-suspension. As such, the grand tourer ensures the passengers enjoy a ride, regardless of the road condition.

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Braking

The 2017 Wraith has a fairly balanced and powerful braking system. Unlike its class rivals, the supercar flaunts almost equal-sized brakes. There is merely a 0.1-inch difference in the size of the brakes. Bentley GT Speed Continental Coupe has the biggest front brake, which measures 15.9 inches.

On the other hand, Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65 boasts the biggest rear brake of 15.4 inches. During emergency braking, the Wraith can halt at a distance of 109 feet when decelerated furiously from 60 MPH. Comparatively, S 65 and Continental Coupe require 105 and 111 feet, respectively.

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Fuel Economy

6.5/10

Fuel economy isn't a true consideration when going for Rolls-Royce. Anyways, the Rolls delivers 12 mpg in cities and 19 mpg on highways. Overall, it offers a combined fuel economy of 15 mpg.

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Interior

9.9/10

All Rolls-Royce cars are about delivering maximum comfort, to which the Wraith is no exception. The car has enough space for 4 passengers. In the front, you get 39.4 and 41.5 inches of headroom and legroom, respectively. The seats are cozy to be in and adjustable to a great degree.

The 2017 Rolls-Royce offers 37 and 36.9 inches of headroom and legroom in the rear. Both are greater than that offered by the AMG S 65 and the Continental. Like the front seats, the rear ones are comfortable and adjustable.

As of now, Wraith is endorsed as the most powerful ride offered. Even though the ride is not like the sportiest grand tourer, it is perhaps the most lavish and deluxe. 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith flaunts an opulent interior that includes:

  • Leather-lush cabin with gorgeous wood inlays
  • Plush lambswool mats
  • Perforated ceiling with over 1,000 individually woven slashes
  • Multiple optional features to customize the insides
  • Spacious, comfy seating
  • A perfectly positioned instrument cluster

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Infotainment System

The Wraith packs the powerful iDrive interface from BMW. This is probably because of the association of Rolls-Royce with the German automobile maker. As such, the infotainment system, as well as the navigation electronics built into the Wraith, are simply impressive.

Support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is available. The infotainment system allows you to tune in to your favorite radio channels as well as connect via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies. The touchpad inlay, dubbed Spirit of Ecstasy, and harp strum chime is unique to Wraith's iDrive interface.

  • Booted rear end

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Competition

Rolls-Royce Wraith vs Bentley GT Speed Continental Coupe

One of the prime competitors to the 2017 Rolls-Royce is the new Bentley Continental GT Speed. The ride flaunts a 6.0L 12-cylinder engine, capable of generating 633 hp of power and 620 lb.-ft. of torque. Both feats are slightly better than those offered by the Rolls-Royce Wraith. Speed has a smaller wheelbase as well as lesser ground clearance than the Wraith.

Just like the Wraith, Speed Continental Coupe flaunts an 8-speed automatic transmission mode. The ride offers slightly better performance than the Rolls-Royce Wraith. However, it takes 2 feet more than its rival for stopping during emergency braking scenarios. Both grand tourers have the same combined fuel economy of 15 mpg.

Rolls-Royce Wraith vs Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65

The opening bid for the Mercedes Benz AMG S 65 starts from $236,250. This is about $79k less than that of the Rolls-Royce Wraith. AMG S 65 offers slightly less engine power of 621 hp but a supermassive 738 lb.-ft. of torque. Under the bonnet, the ride packs a 6.0L 12-cylinder engine, just like the Speed Continental Coupe.

AMG S 65 outshines the competition in terms of performance. The ride takes a mere 3.9 seconds for hitting 60 MPH and covers a quarter-mile in just 12 seconds. Moreover, it has a slightly better-combined fuel economy of 16 mpg than its rivals. However, neither the ride has the same spaciousness as that of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith and nor the same level of opulence.

2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith Final Verdict

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith is all about luxury, comfort, and a smooth driving experience. This car might not be the best sports coupe available but is the most luxurious ride to venture onto a grand tour.

To take the Rolls-Royce impact even to the next level, Wraith comes with a diverse range of options to choose from. These are available for the insides as well as the outsides of the grand tourer. However, the price climbs just as quickly as the appeal of the supercar with every new addition.
