Rolls-Royce Wraith: The Three "Rs" of British Two-Door Luxury Cars [Video]

Take two-doors off the Rolls-Royce Ghost and you get the new Rolls-Royce Wraith fast-back coupe.  The $320,000 Wraith is powered by a massive V12 gracefully setting forth (this is a Roller afterall) 624 horse and 590 pound-feet of torque.  The Wraith will sprint from 0-60 in a very quick 4.4 seconds. But, it’s once the power reaches the ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox that the Rolls-Royce Wraith becomes very interesting.  They...

Wiesmann GT MF4-CS: I Want One…

Wiesmann GT MF4-CS I ran across my first Wiesmann in its natural habitat in 2009 outside of Paddington Station in London.  Since then, I’ve been enamored with the German sports car company, which I’ve always likened to a German version of Morgan, and its pure-bred track-going GT cars. Now, my affection to Wiesmann has grown even stronger with the release of their new GT MF4-CS (and Top Gear thinks the McLaren MP4-12C...
