Speed isn’t really a quality one would associate with Rolls-Royce. But lately, and with the introduction of the Wraith – the most dynamic Roller ever – they have developed a taste for it. Turns out they are also fairly good at it, as this weekend a Rolls-Royce Wraith managed to climb up the Goodwood hill quicker than a whole bunch of seriously quick supercars and GTs.

The car Rolls-Royce is particularly proud of beating to the top of the Goodwood hill is the Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach edition. Rolls-Royce Wraith completed the 1.16-mile course in 57.21 seconds, while it the Porsche 61.37. Given the size of the gap between the times, we can only imagine the driver of the Porsche wasn’t really trying – or had a puncture or something. Otherwise it doesn’t make any sense!

Rolls-Royce Wraith was also quicker than Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition (59.00), the Bentley Continental GT (60.65), and the Maserati GranCabrio MC (60.66), clocking 106 mph as it went across the finish line. The car was driven bychampion mountain and hillclimb driver, Joerg Weidinger.

Besides going up the hill really quickly, Rolls-Royce also enjoyed their Goodwood weekend promoting their charity work with a Purple Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, donated for a year by Rolls?Royce Motor Cars to support Together for Short Lives, providing the largest fleet of Rolls-Royce motor cars ever for VIP guests, and running the Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II Course Car.
