Here is a review of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith with a closer look at the performance, design and price of the new luxury grand tourer coupe in the UAE.

The Eye-Catching Design

It is not a Rolls-Royce if it does not have an eye-catching design. The design of the new 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith is depicting effortless class with classic craftsmanship. The overall design can be called eclectic and very different from the other coupes and grand tourer in the market right now, however the design is distinctly Rolls-Royce and it is breathtaking.

The Exterior

Elegantly muscular, the new grand tourer is a fastback; meaning that the roofline of the coupe continuously goes down till it reaches the rear of the car. The new 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith is 5.27 meters long, 1.95 meters wide and 1.51 meters high, these dimensions make it bigger than the conventional coupe or grand tourer, but being Rolls-Royce, it had to be big and bold.

The fastback design does not only add a style statement, it also provides better aerodynamics that helps the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith cut through the air smoothly. The rectangular headlights accentuate the simple grille and the rear of the car is accentuated by the sculpted look of the tail.

The rear also features a retro-inspired sloped look that looks on-point on the 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith. The coach doors are reminiscent of the past and provide a better access to the interior of the car. The size alone makes the new 2017 Rolls-Royce Wraith a stunning and eye-catching car that will turn heads wherever it is driven down the road.
