The Garden of Wraith
rolls-royce | October 3, 2014
Tax The Rich has a history of taking expensive cars out of their comfort zones and into the countryside. He’s previously treated us with an Enzo in the mud, an XJ220 in the grass, and a 288 GTO channeling a Group B rally car. This time, his vehicle of choice is a new Rolls Royce Wraith – a powerful, but massive fastback coupe designed for wealthy magnates to drive between the bank and the casino in Monaco.
At first, it looks like the $300,000, 5,500 pound Rolls is going to take us on a quiet and comfortable tour of some elegant British garden. However, it’s quickly revealed that the car will be ripping up the grass around the garden, powersliding between trees and tearing up dirt – a feat easily accomplished with the car’s 624 horsepower, twin-turbo V12, which pushes 590 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels.
The part where he gets sideways on the grass looks like a tremendous amount of fun, but I’d be afraid to get little dings and scratches on such an expensive car.
