This was Rolls Royce' First All New Model since the introduction of the Silver Shadow, (30 Years) and only the 9th new model in their 106 year history.
Theoretically, the car is also the "Father" of the new Phantom as it directly precedes it. It is Powered By BMW's multiple award winning M73 V12 Engine (Ward's 10 best engines 1998, International Engine of the Year 1999)
The Engine is so smooth at idle that you can balance a nickel on top of the engine and it just stays there!
It uses a heavy duty 5 speed automatic transmission built by ZF that is incredibly smooth
The Price New of these 2000 models without options was $219,000. mine has the leather Headliner which, I believe is a 10k option. Mine Has 18" wheels that were available on this model if you ordered the Carbon Ceramic Brake Rotors, however it has the normal brake rotors.
This car is a 2 Owner vehicle if Dealers are not included. There have been three dealers between the original owner and myself. the Original owner moved the car from Florida to New York and then back to Florida and then to Texas and then back to Florida and traded it in in Early 2012 to a dealer who sold it at the Manheim Auction. A dealer in Fla. bought it and then put it on ebay. My Friend in San Luis Obispo who is a dealer( British Sports Cars) bought it and then sold it to me with 41900 miles or so. in Dec. 2012.
It has Been A great car and absolutely reliable. When you drive this car, you can expect special treatment at Hotels, Country Clubs, Restaurants and places with Valet Parking.
Check out a video review of the Silver Seraph by the British TV show Men and Motor on YouTube (channel: Menandmotor)
these cars have an ALPINE Stereo System with CD and CD Changer and Navigation.
these Cars use REGULAR BRAKE FLUID (DOT 4) instead of the Old School Mineral Oil that the older cars use.
this car will do the 0-60 in 6.9 seconds and stop from 60-0 in 3 seconds. (amazing for a 5000lb car!)
these cars have a 50/50 front to rear weight balance which really is nice in the corners. Winding Roads are a Pleasure with this car.

A Rolls-Royce is not what you'd typically consider to be "sporty." Luxurious. Stately. Even powerful, packed as they are with twelve-cylinder engines displacing in excess of six and a half liters. The Wraith set out to change that with a sportier package, more rakish profile and an even more potent version of the Ghost's 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 to make it the fastest and most powerful Rolls-Royce ever made. But now it seems Goodwood is working on an even more aggressive version.

Spotted undergoing testing in parent company BMW's home country of Germany, this particular Wraith might strike you as the same one we've already seen, save for a few telltale details. It may be wearing the same rolling stock as the existing model, with what look like the same tailpipes protruding ever so elegantly around back, but at the bottom of the front bumper and atop the rear trunklid you'll notice more assertive spoilers added on.
To what end, we cannot be certain, but our spotters on the ground seem to think this is a prototype for a more extreme version of the Wraith - possibly inspired by the attention garnered by the Bentley Continental GT3-R. Could we be looking at a Wraith V-Specification like we saw with the Ghost? We'll have to wait to find out for sure, but in the meantime you can scope out the virtually undisguised prototype in the gallery of high-resolution spy shots above.

Despite selling 6.6-percent more vehicles - a record by volume - and posting higher revenues in the second quarter of 2013, BMW Group's profit of 2.07 million euros ($2.75 billion) is down 8.8 percent from last year. Investments in new technology (e.g. the new i3) and personnel, in addition to a competitive market, are to blame, BMW states. But the automaker remains committed to its fiscal targets for 2013, which, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Norbert Reithofer, says will be "on a similar scale to 2012."
The BMW brand's sales performance in the first half of the year, which increased by 7.7 percent to 804,258 vehicles delivered, was good enough for it to maintain its lead in the luxury market, narrowly beating Audi, which delivered 780,510 vehicles, Automotive News reports. Mercedes-Benz delivered 694,433 vehicles to cement third place.
While all the gory details surrounding the new Rolls-Royce coupe - including its true name, "Corniche" is just a savory-sounding best guess right now - are still shrouded in mystery, this new set of clandestinely foraged images proves that the car probably won't be a slouch in terms of performance.
The Ghost-based Roller was spotted on the Nürburgring Nordschleife recently, demonstrating its sporting chops at the same time it was showing off it's impressive patrician nose. Expectations are that, when the new coupe is shown off for real at the Geneva Motor Show in March of next year, that nose will belong to the fastest production car to ever wear the Spirit of Ecstasy.
Indications are that the Corniche will be rocking a turbocharged V12, making in the ballpark of 600 horsepower, and using an eight-speed transmission.
