The Worlds of Fashion and Cars Collide - The Result .....The Wraith!
The Rolls Royce production site at Goodwood, West Sussex has been turned into a photography studio as the launch for the most exclusive model - the Wraith – inspired by fashion, draws ever nearer……….
Rolls Royce believe their spirit and philosophy is closely linked to that of Haute Couture as both strive to ‘…….take the finest materials and craft them into the most exquisite and desirable luxury goods, appointed to the customers exact specifications’. And luxury the limited edition Wraith will be, the price tag expected is in the region of £350,000! The Wraith’s international debut will take place on Friday in New York.
The exterior is a two-tone mixture of Andalucian White and Arctic White with accents of Jasmine, tailored purple or Mugello Red.
Under the bonnet owners will find a twin turbo charged 6.6 litre V12 engine with 642 bhp and an 8 speed automatic gear box. This will power the Wraith from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed that is limited to 155 mph.
Inside its luxury all the way with a colour palette of Arctic White and Black, headrests will be embroidered and throughout a complex seamless stitch is used from the world of fine tailoring. Door panels are inlayed with fine silk all with an emblem that represents the ‘spirit of ecstasy’ or ‘flying lady’, each emblem is angled at precisely 55 degrees to perfectly complement the lines of the door. The lacquering process for the wooden dashboard takes 9 days alone and within it is a beautiful bespoke clock and two-tone steering wheel.
What more could you possibly want for £350,000!!!!!!
