This rich red dish is the Rolls-Royce Wraith. The color red is not exactly the first shade one envisions coating a sophisticated and generally understated luxury vehicle like a Rolls-Royce–but that little visual expectation only seems to add to the intoxicating effect. The color is a special edition named “St. James”, for the patron saint of Portugal and Spain.

The St. James red Wraith pays homage to the patron saint via the rich color, shapely fastback body and name. There are ample chrome accents to glitter in the sun and the iconic suicide doors that have been capturing hearts and raising pulses for decades. The overall curb appeal is polished off with two-tone silver and gloss black wheels. Imagine arriving to any event in this vehicle—the exuberance would be unparalleled. It is highly unlikely to ever join an exotic rental car fleet, but there will always be other Rolls-Royce rentals to enjoy as the new models emerge.
The cabin of this special hued Rolls-Royce Wraith is drenched in supple handcrafted leather and telltale accents to proclaim its status. The kick plate simply reads: “Wraith, Hand built in Goodwood, England”. Purring under the hood lurks the standard Wraith powertrain, a robust 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 boosting forth 632 horses to push around that 5,000-pound curb weight. The engine is capable of catapulting the red vision from not to 60 miles per hour in a rapid 4.4 seconds. The Wraith is among the most powerful, if not the most powerful, Rolls-Royce out there.
Will this scarlet shade be at the top of the list for new orders as the roll in?
