Beautiful Rolls-Royce Wraith has Luxury, Comfort, and Unequivocal Style

The new-look Rolls-Royce has just celebrated its 14th anniversary of business since launching under BMW ownership. What better time to launch its most powerful car ever…

Rolls-Royce Wraith Initial Release

In 2013, Britain witnessed the unveiling of what is said to be the most elegant, powerful and technologically advanced Rolls-Royce in history – the all new Rolls Royce Wraith.

Suspension & Steering

The car’s suspension has been strengthened to reduce body roll and to ensure the driver experiences a smoother journey when encountering tight corners.

The steering weight is automatically adjusted depending on the speed of the car: heavier and high speeds and lighter at lower speeds. This is designed to add that little bit more realism to each driving experience.

Technology & Cool Features

In many modern cars the technology can be a little overbearing, Rolls-Royce have designed it to assist the driver discreetly when required, but to then fade to the background once its task is complete.

Technical innovations to further enhance the car’s endless list of features include a satellite-assisted transmission, which utilizes GPS mapping information and individual unique driving characteristics to ensure the most appropriate gear is selected for a particular stretch of road ahead by the eight-speed ZF gearbox – whether it be a blind bend on a country lane, or another unexpected hazard, the Wraith will always be in the right gear!

Additional Cool Features

The Wraith comes complete with a unique head-up display, automatically adaptive headlights and a key-less boot – but the scientific improvements don’t just stop there.

Voice Activated Commands, Navigation System, & More

For example, there is a one-touch call button on the steering wheel which operates the voice activation commands. From here, the driver can instruct the car’s built in satellite navigation system to direct them to their desired destination. And route assistance begins immediately, on-screen and via audio guidance – no more fiddling about with Google Maps.

There is also a built-in Wireless Car Hotspot, and the car’s voice control feature also allows you to operate your phone hands-free – so you can simply give one sentence commands to call anyone of your contacts. For additional convenience you can also record and send audio notes to your contacts.

Plus center console includes a touch pad, which operates like a smart-phone. The driver can use “pinch and pull” motions to scroll through the different functions and options, or they can write letters onto the touch-pad which the Spirit of Ecstasy Rotary Controller will interpret for itself.
