2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith Targets the Bentley Continental GT?

2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

Based on the current Rolls-Royce Coupe, the new 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith offers the same shooting brake-style roof as the gorgeous Bentley Continental GT and even has its rear part clearly inspired by the archrival’s sporty grand-tourer. The price is very different, though. Unveiled this week during the 84th Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, the car will probably go on sale in Q3 at an estimated price of some €250,000: almost 1.5 times more expensive than the current Continental.

Presented by the Italian coach-builder Carozzeria Pininfarina, a brand, which is responsible for such works of art as the Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce and Ferrari Testarossa, the new Pininfarina Hyperion special model is inspired by the classic pre-war RR’s (but mostly by the 1951 Rolls Royce Pininfarina Continental Coupe: a one-off concept car that later gave birth to the famous Bentley Continental range of gentleman’s sports cars) and is based on the current Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.

It is reported that the British-based ultra-luxury brand is seriously pondering an introduction of a smaller Rolls-Royce for the next model year. Although their “full-size” limousines enjoy great success among the wealthier crowd, it looks like BMW, RR’s current owner, wants to make an even bigger profit from the brand by introducing a vehicle that will possibly target Bentley, its long time archrival, which is owned by Volkswagen.

Okay, Mansory is at it again. Right after presenting a pimped-up version of Bentley Continental GTC, the German tuning studio has unveiled a modified Rolls Royce. Probably inspired by the exploits of the infamous rapper Xzibit, the Brand-based tuning specialist decided to use the usual set of flashy ingredients.

Anyone can own a Rolls-Royce. I mean, all you need to join the club, is some €350,000 for a base model, and this is not a crazy lot of money in some oil-exporting parts of the world. Well, of course there is a waiting list that adds a note of exclusivity to the whole idea of owning a Phantom, but, hey, there is a number of much, much less expensive cars on the market that often take up to a year even to get to assembly line after the deposit was paid.
