As we look back at 2013 for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Raleigh, it’s apparent that it was a year of many cool things. To check what Rolls-Royce has been most excited about, we combed through their Facebook page from January to December and selected the most newsworthy, interesting and just plain awesome moments of the year. Therefore we give you the top three Rolls-Royce moments of 2013.
According to the Robb Report, a luxury publication, the Phantom series retains its place among the world’s automotive elite. There are standard and long-wheelbase models, coupe and convertible models, all with stately designs that are demure with the details. Also available is the fiber optic “starry night” option for those models with a hardtop.
It’s been a long time coming, but the Wraith is without a doubt one of the most astounding cars we’ve seen this year, possibly our overall favorite. The Financial Times was similarly affected: “Rolls-Royce claims that no other car exists to match the Wraith, and looking at it in all its elegant vastness leaves one inclined to agree.”
No one would dream of putting a Rolls-Royce outside the bounds of what it was meant to do, but there are times when it is good to show the world that you have the ability to roar. The Wraith took to the track, watching it blast from the start line reminds you that there’s a V-12 under the hood with some potency. Combined with a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds and a 134 mph top speed at the track, the world might indeed have stood still.
