The Rolls Royce Wraith: An interior fit for a king – or more realistically – a Saudi Prince

Rolls Royce Wraith

The latest Rolls Royce Wraith debuts next month in Geneva. But to tie us over until then, Rolls has released two photos of the simply stunning Wraith interior.

Built by hand in Goodwood England, the Wraith epitomizes Rolls’ attention to detail and luxury. Sir Henry Royce and his design team used to spend summers in Le Canadel in the South of France. Modern day Rolls designers wanted to hint to that heritage with what it calls the “horseshoe sweep” cabin – whatever that means.

Pompous blithering aside, the Wraith interior is the kind we only wish everyday automakers were capable of. The clock, for example, features a blood orange hand, which stands as not only a striking accent mark against the dark tones of the interior but also as a hint to the Wraith’s performance prowess.

It’s clear from these two teaser photos, Rolls has spared not expense to achieve world-class luxury and refinement. For that, we applaud the bespoke automaker. Just look; all-wood door panels. How amazing is that?

We recently reported that Rolls Royce was kicking around the idea of a new V16 engine. Could the Wraith set to be unveiled in Geneva next week feature such a wondrous powerhouse? It’s doubtful. But with such stunning detail as we see here, we’re not that bothered.

One detail we found rather amusing was the Rolls Royce media site offers the Wraith interior press release in two languages: English and Arabic. Rolls Royce might have its head stuck in the clouds, but at least no one can accuse the brand of being unrealistic.

Having never been die hard fans of German-owned, British luxury yachts like Rolls Royce, we now find ourselves eagerly anticipating the Wraith reveal. So you can rest assured we’ll bring you details as soon as they’re made available to us.
