Rolls-Royce Makes Push for Provenance Pre-Owned Program

2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith: First Drive


The all-new 2014 Wraith two-door is no less than the most powerful, quickest Rolls-Royce ever made. It's also no less than $288,600, including the destination charge and a gas-guzzler tax.

The car includes the first application of an automatic transmission with behavior influenced by GPS, which is only the most exclusive of a bevy of technologies operating behind the scenes.
