There’s nothing quite like piloting a Rolls-Royce, and nothing quite like stepping out of one either. The British maker’s newest model, the Wraith, makes no excuses for its luxurious largesse. This vehicle is as much about making a grand entrance at a Buckhead valet as it is about taking a glorious drive.

So, full steam ahead, and once you set a course, the Wraith plows forward with a take-no-prisoners authority. This two-door fastback boasts a German-built twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces an astonishing 624 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. Mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Wraith surges from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, a run that imparts a sense of effortless power to whomever assumes the wheel. The giddyup isn’t blazing—this is Rolls-Royce after all—but the Wraith is one of the most performance-forward autos the Goodwood factory has yet produced. An innovative Satellite Aided Transmission uses GPS data to anticipate gear selections based on upcoming terrain, creating an unmatched level of smoothness that makes shifts barely perceptible.

San Diego’s answer to Art Basel may not be internationally iconic—yet—but it’s definitely mastered the successful artfest formula. Now in its sixth year, Art San Diego showcases the best of regional contemporary talent and beyond alongside the bacchanalian mingling of the scene’s longtime luminaries and bright young things.

The four-day fair, held Nov. 6-9 at Balboa Park, will feature more than 50 local, national and international exhibitors. But this is no mere knockoff. Art San Diego offers unexpected collaborations between cutting-edge artists and institutions, not to mention wine tastings, intimate meet-and-greets, a first-dibs collector’s preview and a VIP party.

“It’s the who’s who of the art world,” says Ann Berchtold, founder and director of Art San Diego. “Opening night is always standing room only.”
