If you've got some money lying around...
Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe not fast enough? Too girly? Too much drama involved, making it too undignified to be a “proper” Rolls coupe?
If you own enough money to buy a small African state, you might consider taking a look a the upcoming Rolls Royce Wraith. It'll give you better mileage than a small African country, but only marginally.
Powered by a twin turbo 6.6 litre V12 engine and based on the Rolls Royce Ghost (which in turn is based on the BMW 7 series) platform, the Wraith is being marketed as the fastest, most powerful Rolls Royce ever to be sold in Britain. Its fast alright, with a purported 0-60 mph time of just 4.4 seconds, which is amazing considering it looks like a ton of bricks arranged in a very pretty manner.
It IS very good looking, in a way only a Rolls Royce can pull off (Bentleys try, but aren't quite there yet, as of now). Its basically a two door Ghost, with a sleeker roofline and softer, rounder edges. The Ghost looked great, but the Wraith looks more purposeful.
The doors are hinged at the back, like the Phantom DHC, and when viewed from the front with the doors open, the Wraith looks like its inviting you to the drive of your life. Or asking you to be quite broke for quite a long time. Either way, we think it'd be worth it.
