A specially commissioned Rolls-Royce Wraith has just landed in Abu Dhabi, and the bespoke vehicle is something we have never seen before. The ‘Wraith – Inspired By Earth’ has taken inspiration from the geographical view of Earth from space along with the surrounding solar system.
Taking over 100 hours to create by the Rolls-Royce team, the Royal Blue Wraith hosts amazing design details including planetary inclusions on the control panels, hand-painted coachline, and unique, air-brushed artwork depicting the Middle East as seen from space. Original Starlight headliner design has been replaced by a magnificent layout of the solar system and planet orbit.
“We’re used to clients bringing us grand visions for their Bespoke Commissions, but this provided a new perspective altogether. 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, centering our view of the world on the place the customer calls home.” – Michael Bryden, Lead Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
The Royal Blue exterior is meant to reflect the 75% of the Earth’s surface that is covered by water with the hand-painted Emerald Green coachline portraying the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune planet artwork. The commissioned vehicle’s interior contrasts the exterior by focusing on the Earth’s surface and earthly details. For example, the inside bonnet stunningly shows a satellite’s-eye view of the Middle Eastern region extending across the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman. The aerial-view theme continues through the interior in rear waterfall embroidery, air-brushed fascia and Bespoke Starlight Headliner.
Cleverly following the aesthetic of Middle East geography, the Wraith seats are made from Moccasin leather to mimic the sands of the Emirates’ deserts. Other color details include Cobalt Blue, Emerald Green, and Arctic White accents to insinuate rivers, lakes, trees, and clouds around the vehicle’s interior.
