2014 Rolls Royce Wraith Geneva

Who would have thought Rolls Royce would have sporty intentions.  But apparently they did.  And they used the Ghost platform to create it.  The car features a coupe styling with two doors (suicide type, after all its a Rolls) a gorgeously sloping roof, dual tone colours and carries a name that has been dropped so long ago, that nobody even remembers it.  Yes, its called the Wraith and comes with a V12 engine that pumps out a neck snapping 624 BHP. It also features the usual Rolls Royce features such as cowhide interiors, big die cast wheels shod with ultra low profile tyres and it costs a whopping 100,000 USD more than the once stable mate the Bentley Continental GT Speed Coupe.  Is it worth it?  Well if you consider the fact that the car has a programmed eight speed satellite aided ZF auto transmission.  The satellite aided transmission selects gears on the car with a Satnav system which takes road conditions into consideration.  Whew.  The Germans have taken the battle on British soil very seriously and it seems that this round goes to BMW and Volkswagen will have to think of ways to retaliate with the Bentley brand.
