ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH

Special saloon, saloon, enclosed limousine, touring limousine, various specials.

Revamped 25/30, slower, heavier and with lower geared steering than its predecessor. Now with a welded rather than rivetted chassis, a scaled down version of the PIII ifs, and, in keeping with tradition, a rh change, presumably to keep the chauffeurs happy. De luxe models had a dropping division and heater, while all came with built-in hydraulic jacks, actuated by a hand pump under the front passenger sear. Rare but not particularly desirable, it presaged the post-war loss of standards at Rolls-Royce, and apart from that it is not a very elegant motor car.
