Rolls-Royce first introduced the Silver Wraith in 1946. It was their first car since World War II, when they were forced to shut down automobile manufacturing and redirect their productivity to airplane engines. When the Silver Wraith hit the market, many were skeptical about how an ultra-luxury car would fare in a struggling economy. However, the Silver Wraith successfully appealed to the wealthy, to nobility, and to the heads of state, and the Rolls-Royce was once again able to establish themselves as the authority of performance and luxury. Rolls-Royces final Silver Wraith model was the 59 Silver Wraith, which marked the end of an era. The engine and performance of this car had greatly improved from its predecessors. The 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was equipped with a 4.9-liter engine that was able to travel up to 90 mph. It came standard with a four-speed manual transmission or the optional manual transmission, which was crafted by General Motors. In addition, this version of the Silver Wraith is one of the few model years that come with a dual-exhaust system for both left and right-hand driving cars.
