Being the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever created, the Wraith was designed for drivers. We recently got the chance to spend a few days with a 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith.
There’s no doubt that the Wraith is fast. It’s faster than a car that weighs nearly 5,500 pounds deserves to be. Powered by a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12, it pushes 624 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels, with peak torque coming online at a ridiculously low 1,500 rpm.
I personally had always assumed that the Rolls-Royce would be elephant-like: ponderous and slow. But I was so wrong. The Wraith is nothing like that. The V12 engine is also remarkably quiet, and from the driver’s seat, you can barely hear a whisper, even if you’re flooring the gas pedal.[tablet] Details Powered By: Castrol EDGE
