The cars with the double-R on the radiator have been a byword for luxury, reliability and style for 100 years.

GHOST

WRAITH

The traditionalists among Rolls-Royce owners do not like grandiose changes. Following this credo, Rolls-Royce has very subtly re-worked the successful Ghost model. On the exterior, the redesigned LED headlights, modified air inlets and the revised bonnet catch the eye. Inside, supreme luxury and comfort continue to dominate. The seats in the rear can even be inclined towards one another. Another interesting detail is the illuminated radiator mascot. The engine range starts with a 570-hp twelve-cylinder unit with 6.6 litres of displacement. A technical highlight is a satellite-based automatic transmission that pre-programs the gear changes depending on the route.

The Wraith is the Coupé of the smaller Rolls-Royce Ghost series and known as the Rolls-Royce for people who like to drive themselves. Product Manager Phil Harnett describes the Wraith as the ultimate Gran Turismo and lauds it as the most dynamic Rolls-Royce built to date. No series car from the British has a more powerful engine. “This is our first ever true ‘driver’s car’,” says Harnett. At the most, Wraith owners only require a chauffeur for vehicle maintenance.

GHOST BLACK BADGE If money and restraint are not are a factor, then Rolls-Royce has just the thing on offer: the luxury Ghost Black Badge saloon – a sombre car for c ­ ustomers with a special urge for showmanship.

WRAITH BLACK BADGE Rolls-Royce serves up the Wraith in a Black Badge version with a striking black grille in place of a chrome-plated one. In addition, there’s a silver-coloured double-R on a black background in the logo. And then, the most famous radiator mascot of all time slips into her little black number again. It fits even better somehow with her stage name: Spirit of Ecstasy. Even though the new carbon rims and the two black tailpipes rather grab ones attention, in the end, it’s the little details above all that make it a winner.
