In response to an ongoing worldwide demand for Rolls-Royce Collection Cars, the marque has developed a Limited Collection of just 55 of these spectacular Wraiths. These motor automobiles join the extremely exclusive ranks of collectible Bespoke masterpieces, envisioned by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke style team and collected by Patrons of correct luxury all more than the globe.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, chief executive officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, mentioned, “Wraith Luminary is a stunning Collection Car. It speaks directly of our contemporary Rolls-Royce brand – progressive and trailblazing, the pinnacle in hand-crafted luxury. This is a motor car that celebrates visionaries who achieve eminence in their respective fields. Indeed, this collection is for the world’s luminaries.”
The heady shade of the golden hour’s sunrays inspire this newly created exterior paint, Sunburst Grey. One is met by a flat grey that enlivens when awoken by the sun, wealthy copper tones, emitting a deep emotive warmth. Further intrigue is added by a hand-painted Sunburst Motif coachline, hand-painted Wake Channel Lines on Wraith’s bonnet and pinstripes applied to the wheel centres, every in Saddlery Tan, bearing reference to the colourway of the interior leather.
Energy courses via this extremely charged edition of Wraith. On opening the coach doors, 1 is met by a statement of contemporary luxury, as light flows from the front into the rear passenger compartment. The Collection’s defining function, Tudor Oak wood, sourced from the forests of the Czech Republic, chosen for its depth of colour and the density of the grain structure, is for the initial time, illuminated. The light of 176 LEDs permeates via an intricately perforated style in the special Tudor Oak veneer, permitting a mesmerising pattern, reminiscent of the trailing light of a shooting star, to luminesce at the touch of a button. Linked to the controls of the starlight headliner, the cabin’s veneer surrounds Wraith’s occupants in an ambient glow of light.
Speaking of shooting stars, the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective, a talented group of engineers, designers and craftspeople positioned at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, have brought additional theatre to the cabin of Luminary in the type of brilliant shooting stars. The prized Rolls-Royce starlight headliner, a handwoven configuration of 1340 fibre optic lights which act as a glittering evening sky, requires a bold new step as it incorporates shooting stars into the constellation, a playful show of light that creates wonderment and awe for the car’s passengers.
Taking practically 20 hours to configure, eight shooting stars fire at random, predominantly more than the front seats, in recognition of Wraith’s owner-driver appeal.
Wraith Luminary’s cockpit is trimmed in Saddlery Tan, although the rear seats contrast in Anthracite leather, therefore highlighting the prominence of the driver’s position. Contrast piping and stitching masterfully marry the front aesthetic to the rear. Alternatively, a much more dramatic contrast can be chosen by specifying Seashell coloured leather in the rear, each of which will be completely coalesced by the inclusion of a two-tone steering wheel.
The Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective continually seeks inspiration from external trends and influences. In a progressive step, the application of hand-woven stainless steel fabric, a extremely modern and revolutionary new method in luxury craft, is appointed to the central transmission tunnel and door panniers, contrasting the Tudor Oak wood and Saddlery Tan leather.
Incorporating strands which are .08mm-.19mm in diameter, this technical fibre is woven in a pattern oriented at precisely 45 degrees, to complement the lines of the interior and offer a uniform look all through the passenger compartment when viewed from either side. Taking 3 days to create in a ‘clean room’ atmosphere, the fabric is manipulated to cloak the centre console, modified from use in an industrial atmosphere to develop a finish befitting the interior of a Rolls-Royce motor vehicle, refracting the light of the special illuminated paneling in the doors.
As a final touch, the car’s tread plates bear the provenance of this special collection. ‘Wraith Luminary Collection – One of Fifty-Five’ is engraved in hand-polished stainless steel.
Since its incarnation, Wraith has extended attracted the patronage of visionaries drawn to the intoxicating guarantee of close to limitless energy and it is hauntingly rakish quickly-back style, a correct gentleman’s gran tourismo fabricated par excellence. Rolls-Royce is Bespoke.
