The Rolls-Royce Wraith is a British handmade 4 seat luxury grand tourer manufactured by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and based on the chassis of the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

The name Wraith comes from an old Scottish word meaning image of a ghost or spirit, a name it shares with the 1938 model by the original Rolls Royce company.

The body style is a 2-door pillarless coupe, where all side windows can roll down as in a convertible. This body style was popular in American cars during the 1950s and 60s and was known as the Hardtop body style.
