Roll-Royce has introduced a limited edition collection of 55 unique motorcars based on the luxury carmaker’s Wraith model that feature a bespoke list of features, including a new shooting star headliner. Used for the first time ever on a Rolls-Royce car, the shooting star headliner builds upon the incredible starlight headliner already offered by the British marque and adds eight shooting stars to the mix that light up at random. Another feature unique to the Luminary collection is the illuminated wood veneer. The Luminary collection comes with panels made from Tudor Oak wood, which is sourced from the forests of the Czech Republic and selected for its depth of color and the density of the grain structure. The wood is illuminated by 176 LEDs that shine through intricately made perforations forming a mesmerizing pattern of the trailing light of a shooting star.
Other bespoke touches include the use of hand-woven stainless steel fabric as thin as 0.08mm, which is featured on the transmission tunnel and door panels. Lastly, the hand-polished stainless steel tread plates feature a 1 of 50 engraving, further signifying the bespoke design. “Wraith Luminary is a stunning Collection Car,” says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “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 Wraith Luminary Collection is mechanically identical to the standard model, so it retains the 6.6-liter V12 engine outputting 623 horses. There is no word on the price, but we expect it to be significantly more than Wraith’s $340,000 base price.
