Harry's Garage has just put up a tantalising review of a 2,000 mile drive in a Rolls Royce Wraith Black Badge

Can't stand 'em myself (stars in the roof lining FFS), but it's a remarkable drive / review, the drive around the Swiss passes reminds us all that there are roads out there still to be driven, and it's a useful reminder that our cars are cheap relative to this £320,000 creature.

Interesting videos, I was surprised how noisy the Roller was at speed, I'd imagined silence somehow

The standard Wraith is more silent.

The Black Badge car is supposed to be for "Young men in a hurry," according to RR - i.e. aged 20 - 45 (sic) - at least a decade younger than a normal RR customer.

Obviously we don't know the performance numbers, but anything that weighs 2.5 tongues yet beats Supercars on the Goodwood circuit must have a bit of grunt to it.

Pause while I go off and think about someone aged between 20-45 buying such a car... Here's a Wraith Black Badge buyer, Ms Marisa Mills, taking possession of her new car in Vegas. (She has her own large car dealership) :
