The new, bespoke Wraith features design elements inspired by Mother Earth.

Ground control to Major Rolls. A new, customized Rolls-Royce Wraith has taken inspiration from the Solar System. The design was commissioned by a client through Rolls-Royce Abu Dhabi at a cost far exceeding the Wraith’s $330,000 base price.

“We’re used to clients bringing us grand visions for their Bespoke Commissions, but this provided a new perspective altogether.” said Michael Bryden, Lead Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “In our response to the brief, we’ve worked at both the ‘macro’ level, referencing the Sun and planets of the whole Solar System, and the much more personal ‘micro’ level, centring our view of the world on the place the customer calls home.”

Given the name “Wraith – Inspired By Earth”, the model’s design features classic Wraith elements alongside unique accents that are only found on this particular vehicle. The exterior wears a Royal Blue paint job representing the 75 percent of the Earth’s surface that is covered by water.

On its hood is artwork that depicts a satellite’s-eye view of the Middle East, centered on the United Arab Emerites and encompassing the Red Sea, Arabian Sea, and Gulf of Oman. The art was airbrushed on in a process that took 100 hours to complete.

An Emerald Green coastline extends the length of the car and incorporates the eight planets of the Solar System: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

The interior of the Wraith’s aesthetic focus is on the Earth’s surface including the humans and natural life that inhabit it. The seats are made from Moccasin leather to mimic the sands of the Emirates’ deserts; Navy and Cobalto Blue accents are reminiscent of rivers and lakes and Emerald Green piping symbolizes nature. Arctic White “RR” monograms and stitching hint at clouds and translucent running water.

The rear waterfall features a scene of atmospheric clouds rendered in detailed embroidery using Photoflash technology. On the fascia, the Piano Milori veneer is embellished with a satellite image of the Middle East. It’s not a photograph but instead another airbrushed design.

The Bespoke Starlight Headliner is embroidered to illustrate all the planets of Solar System, centred on the Sun. Other Bespoke details include treadplates, a clock with metal radial background, and inlays showing the planets in silver, with planet Earth accentuated in gold.
