Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

In July of 2016, Rolls-Royce unveiled its latest offering – the Wraith Black Badge. The Wraith and Ghost models feature a raft of upgrades, with more power and dark metal detailing. Rolls says the Black Badge Series is geared towards “the risk takers and disruptors who break the rules and laugh in the face of convention.”
The 6.6-litre V12 in each car benefits from a bit of extra shove. The Ghost is upped to 603 hp and 620lb ft, while the Wraith now has 623 hp and 642lb ft. Both cars also have sharper eight-speed automatic gearboxes, while the Wraith gets an overhauled air suspension system, one which provides a “magic carpet ride.”

Rock bottom base MSRP is $306,350.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars sold a record number of cars last year, breaking through the 4,000 mark for the first time in its 111-year history.

The luxury car maker sold 4,063 cars, up 12% on last year, and marking the fifth consecutive year of record sales. Sales in the US increased by almost a third, by 40% in Europe and in the Middle East by 20%.
Its Wraith model and strong orders for its new Ghost Series II helped drive the strong performance.

The firm said it sold more cars worth more than €200,000 (£157,000) than any of its rivals.
