See the New $362,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith, ‘Inspired by Fashion’

Rolls-Royce has unveiled the latest of its customized cars, the $362,000 Wraith “Inspired by Fashion.” The V-12 coupe premiered as part of a special scholarship program conducted by Rolls and the Pratt Institute, which follows the history of Rolls-Royce: Sir Henry Royce and his partner, Charles Rolls, used to build their cars near Savile Row and urge their customers to have their coaches finished to match favorite suits and gowns.
