2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith First Drive - A Fleeting Fantasma

Since being swept away on a huge wave of new-found enthusiasm for the Double-R, Wraith has never been more than a few thoughts away.

As fun and posh and unforgettable as the ride in a *brand new* Phantom Series II was - the time spent inside Wraith is most tingly.

I should mention this now: the name of the vehicle is simply "Wraith" - without anything in front. It might be a bit formal at first, but if not for a 624-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-12 coupe.. when?

Some of the colors that really make Wraith leap into action are set to be featured over the coming weeks here on CarRevsDaily.com.

The ultimate show-showstopper - many would agree - is this magnificent deep opal blue. Seen up close, it is almost as though the paint itself has layers of diamond ribbons under its finish. Such is the luster and depth ... to make you want to lean your eye right near the fenders for closer inspection.

I know from experience how hard Wraith's essence is to capture on film. Like a fleeting "fantasma" is the only way my brain can keep up.

Here are some of the elusive angles Wraith never wants to show...

Salamanca Blue is the shade. Say it a few times with a breezey southern-Spanish whisp, and it dances on the lips.
