Video: Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge drag races Bentley Continental GT

Well, to be fair, even in Black Badge clothes, the Rolls-Royce Wraith wasn’t exactly designed to be used on the drag strip.

Unlike the Bentley, the Wraith has an 8-speed automatic gearbox sending power to the rear wheels alone and doesn’t have Launch Control.

On the one side we have the Continental GT which comes equipped with a 6-liter W12 engine with 635 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque, hooked up to an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Today that’s no longer the case and now, the two brands are rivals, Bentley being the closest thing to Rolls-Royce in the upper echelons of luxury.

The guys from CarWow (located in the UK) are pitting the Rolls-Royce Wraith against its rival from Crewe, the Bentley Continental GT.
