When youre looking for a classic car with luxury and style, nothing comes close to a Rolls-Royce. In 1947, Rolls-Royce developed its second-year model of the Silver Wraith. They had just come out of a seven-year automobile manufacturing shutdown because of the Second World War, and were looking to reclaim a piece of the market. Fortunately, the 1947 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was able to do just that. Its 135-horsepower, inline-six engine was capable of traveling nearly 90 miles-per-hour, and the interior was comfortable enough so that you wouldnt feel every bump on the road. It is also equipped with a wishbone independent front suspension and hydraulic brakes in the front. The Silver Wraith was the first of Rolls-Royces models to use this type of brakes. The engine size of the Silver Wraith is the same was its pre-war counterparts, but has been modified with an F-head configuration to improve performance
