The Rolls-Royce Wraith is a British handmade four seat luxury grand tourer manufactured by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and based on the chassis of the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

The name Wraith comes from an old Scottish word meaning image of a ghost or spirit, a name it shares with the 1938 model by the original Rolls Royce company.

The body style is a two-door pillarless coupe, where all side windows can roll down as in a convertible. This body style was popular in American cars during the 1950s and 60s and was known as the hardtop body style, not used by Rolls Royce since 1955.
