Rolls Royce Wraith Sports Sedan

The Wraith was built by Rolls Royce in its Derby factory between 1938 and 1939. Its chassis was received by independent specialized coachbuilders for the completion of the construction.

The 1938-1939 Rolls-Royce Wraith was the last and most modern junior Royce of the prewar period, taking over for the Rolls-Royce 25/30.

Most Wraiths were sedans with razor-edge lines, but a few, more flowing coupes and convertibles were also completed.

This specific Wraith was acquired by the Museum in Greece from Alexander Andreadis, one of the most significant collectors of Historic cars of the ’70s and Christina Onassis’s first husband.

First owner of this specific car was Sir Laurence Olivier.
