The Rugby World Cup is in full swing and has prompted Rolls-Royce to make some money out of it, oh I mean ‘show their support’. They’ve done it by revealing a special version of the Wraith, their two door V12 coupe. The special edition Wraith isn’t much more of a sports car underneath as the engine, suspension and all the important bits are still the same.
Vision And Individuality
Rolls-Royce regional director James Crichton said: “This truly unique Wraith emphasises vision and individuality, inspired by the role it plays within a team”. The Wraith would actually fit quite well into a rugby team with its big brutish nature and its low down grunt and power. Powered by the usual 6.6-litre twin turbo V12 with 624BHP the 0-60 time is the same as standard, 4.6 seconds and the top speed remains the same as well, limited to 155MPH.
Subtlety And Class Teamed With Brute Force And Power
What is different on the Wraith is its new England inspired paintwork. Complete with the English rose, the new paint job is designed to resemble the England Rugby shirts (let’s completely forget that Rolls-Royce is owned by BMW so is essentially German). Along with the new paint Rolls have also added an English rose to the door sills and the luxurious white leather seats.
Style Over Substance, Is It Actually Special?
Yet again this seems to be another Rolls-Royce special edition that is all style over substance. They did it with the Phantom and now they’re doing it to the Wraith. Giving the car a new coat of paint and calling it a special edition sounds a little like money grabbing to me.
