2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith vs. Its Competition

2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith First Drive, Scottsdale, Arizona
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

There's really only one alternative to the Rolls-Royce Wraith, and it's the cross-island rival, the Bentley Continental GT Speed.

Similarly powerful and similarly equipped, either of these hyper-luxury titans is an enviable way to cross a continent--or to drop into the local nightlife scene.

In a pinch, a Mercedes-Benz S63 or S65 AMG could be considered an alternative, as could the BMW 760Li, but despite the potent performance and advanced technology, neither exudes the old-world, old-money feel of the Rolls-Royce.
