ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH: BESPOKE BLACK BADGE ARRIVES IN MELBOURNE
Rolls-Royce Melbourne has revealed a special Wraith Black Badge at its Richmond showroom, showcasing the limitless personalisation options available in the British marque’s range.
Finished in Arctic White, the Wraith Black Badge features an array of black-accented exterior trimmings, including for the front splitter, window surrounds, and sports exhaust tips, dark chrome Spirit of Ecstasy and grille, along with dark-finished 21-inch carbon alloy wheels.
Inside, there’s a tri-colour scheme for the leather interior, combining Hotspur Red, Arctic White and black surfaces throughout the cabin. Keeping with the theme, there’s also a pair of bespoke Rolls-Royce umbrellas to match the interior colours.
The dashboard fascia is finished in aluminium thread woven into carbon-fibre, while the headliner is finished in black and features 1430 fibre-optic lights to create Rolls-Royce’s signature ‘starry night’ effect.
Other fitted options include a bespoke audio system that offers “concert sound listening”, and embossed headrests for all four seats.
“The Black Badge is the ultimate expression of Rolls-Royce individuality,” said Michael Winkler, CEO of Zagame Automotive – which operates Rolls-Royce Melbourne.
“The Black Badge treatment juxtaposed on the Wraith’s Arctic White fastback body is a bold and confident statement. We created this car to shift perceptions of what people perceive Rolls-Royce to be.”
“This is a symbol of the new generation Rolls-Royce, showcasing the breadth of individualisation possible on models such as the Wraith which are bringing new customers to the brand” he added.
Power comes from a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 generating 465kW of power and 870Nm of torque, sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rolls-Royce claims a 0-100km/h sprint of 4.3 seconds – not bad for a 2.4-tonne luxury coupe.
The Arctic White Wraith Black Badge is available now at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Melbourne, priced at $885,500 drive-away.
