The 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith offers the pinnacle of luxury and driving enjoyment for premium automotive shoppers, with its exquisite styling, a spacious and refined interior, a powerful V12 engine, state-of-the-art technologies, and a wide array of luxurious amenities. In this 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith vs 2020 BMW 8 Series comparison, we show how the Wraith outshines the luxury car competition.
For performance, the Rolls-Royce Wraith easily dominates the BMW 8 Series. It comes standard with a 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 engine, which cranks out 591 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. For the Wraith Black Badge model, the torque output gets boosted to 664 lb-ft of torque. The base-level 3.0-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine in the BMW 8 Series generates just 335 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, while the 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 engine in the BMW M850i model produces 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.
The Wraith offers larger wheels than the 8 Series, with the standard 20” wheels and the available 21” wheels. The 8 Series offers standard 18” wheels and available 20” wheels. For more confident handling, the Wraith has a longer wheelbase (122.5” vs 111.1”) than the 8 Series. Also, unlike the 8 Series, the Wraith comes equipped with air springs for the suspension, resulting in a very smooth ride.
You can load up for your journeys with the spacious trunk in the Wraith, with a cargo capacity of 16.6 cu-ft. The trunk in the 8 Series has a cargo capacity of only 14.8 cu-ft.
The cabin of the Wraith has many luxurious amenities. Good examples of this are the massaging function for the front seats and a center folding armrest for the rear seats. The 8 Series doesn’t offer either of these features.
