Rolls-Royce Wraith goes on sale in India

To cater to the fast-growing uber-rich clientele in India, Rolls-Royce launched the Wraith coupe yesterday at an ex-showroom Delhi price of INR 4.6 Crores. The Wraith is the third Rolls-Royce model on sale in our country, along with the Phantom and Ghost sedans.

The Wraith is special in more ways than one. Powered by a V12 engine that churns out 624 bhp of maximum power and 800 Nm of peak torque, it is the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h taking just 4.4 seconds. Being a Grand Tourer with sporty pretensions, the Wraith opens up new avenues for the British brand and enables it to lock horns directly with Bentley’s Continental GT.

The Wraith looks so different yet so similar to the Phantom and Ghost and is easily immediately identifiable as a Rolls-Royce. The big, deep-set radiator grille flanked on either sides by slim headlight clusters is magnificent as are the beautifully-designed triangular taillights. With a two-tone paint job and a muscular profile, the Wraith, as Rolls-Royce rightly claims, looks fast even when standing still. As with any other Rolls-Royce, the interiors of the Wraith screams luxury and is made of finest quality leather and wood available. Equipped with a gamut of creature comforts and the ultimate safety features, the Wraith, no doubt, will ensure that all its four occupants are cocooned in the cabin.

When the Wraith was unveiled in the glitz and paparazzi of the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, it marked an important step in the history of Rolls-Royce. This fastback coupe variant of the Ghost sedan was not only the third nameplate to be adorned with the Spirit of Ecstasy logo, but also the one that helps Rolls-Royce expand beyond luxury sedans and limousines.

At INR 4.6 Crores ex-showroom Delhi for the base model which is bound to go up as the individual personalization options are checked, the Wraith is insanely expensive. But then, the exclusivity and the social status associated with owning one is what makes the Rolls-Royce experience so special, isn't it? And that, ladies and gentlemen, is invaluable.
