High rollers, you've got a new option in the ultra-luxury coupe market, with the order books now open for the Rolls-Royce Wraith.
Deliveries for the big new coupe begin later this year, but you can put your name against one right now for just $645,000 drive-away - equal to its four-door Ghost twin.
The Wraith comes with extra bragging rights however, debuting in Geneva earlier this year as Rolls' most powerful production model.
Under that big bonnet, you'll find the Ghost's 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12, but in the Wraith its power has been boosted from 420kW and 780Nm to a mighty 465kW and 800Nm.
Paired with ZF's eight-speed auto transmission, Rolls-Royce says the V12 will push the Wraith to 100km/h in a sharp 4.6 seconds.
In the Ghost saloon, the engine offers 420kW and a 0-100km/h time of 4.8 seconds. Fuel consumption? "Who cares", some might say, but for those interested, Rolls claims 14.0 l/100km on the combined cycle.
Weighing in at 2360kg, the Wraith measures 5269mm long, 1947mm wide and 1507mm tall, riding on a 3112mm wheelbase. In all, the Wraith is 130mm shorter than the Ghost.
The Wraith rides on big 21-inch wheels, and among the Wraith's unique features is a special "Starlight Headliner" ceiling, glitering with 1340 fibre-optic lights.
Rolls-Royce has also used the Wraith to debut the new Satellite Aided Transmission system, using GPS data and driving style to select the best gear for the road ahead.
Of course, if none of that is to your taste, you could always consider Bentley's hero $408,870 V12 Continental GT - and if you go for the V8, you can get into one of those for just $370,000 (plus on-roads for both).
