Rolls-Royce has launched the fastest and most dynamic model it has ever built, the Wraith in the Indian market with prices starting at an insanely expensive Rs. 4.6 crores. The company has also started an India tour (multi-city) of the vehicle which is three months long and commences from New Delhi. The Rolls-Royce Wraith is powered by a 6.6-litre, twin-turbo V12 engine which belts out 624 BHP of power and 800 Nm of torque. 0-100 km/hr is done and dusted in just 4.6 seconds and this 4-seater coupe is claimed to be the most luxurious in the segment. We can’t really comment if it’s the most luxurious in its segment but we can sure agree on it being the costliest!
The Rolls-Royce Wraith is the boldest and most dramatic vehicle from the British automaker, not to forget the fastest too. The dual tone (diamond black on the lower half and silver sand on the upper) gives the vehicle a very unique character which makes it look fast even while standing still. The interiors are inspired from the Phantom with the leather having the softest grade. Remember, the Wraith is based on a shortened Ghost platform.
The Wraith sits on 21-inch, 5-spoke tyres and the air suspension offers low body roll and excellent feedback to the driver. That said, the Wraith rides like other Rolls-Royce cars, which means it wafts along the road. The Rolls-Royce Wraith is loaded with features like heads-up display, keyless opening boot, adaptive headlights, camera system, one-touch voice activation, advanced navigation activated by voice command, etc. Driving style measurement ensures the correct cog is selected by the 8-speed ZF gearbox. There is also the starlight headliner which has 1340 lights hand woven into the roof to give that starry feeling.
Today also marks the fifth anniversary of the Rolls-Royce Delhi showroom. Rs. 4.6 crore is the starting price, that too ex-showroom. The price goes up even higher as you choose bespoke options since no two Rolls-Royce cars are the same and are built to order. For this price you do get a super fast, luxury coupe with peace of mind. Delivery time for the Wraith stretches up to 4 months. Rolls-Royce offers 4-year unlimited kms warranty (doesn’t include tyres and glass) on all its new cars.
A Rolls-Royce service package covers the complete service and maintenance of the vehicle for the first four years, no matter how many kms you drive. There is also 24-hour roadside assistance. Rolls-Royce is celebrating 10-years of presence in modern India. The 109-year old company launched its flagship Phantom in India in January 2003. Rolls-Royce will have a total of 5 dealerships in India by the end of this fiscal year.
