The fastest and most dramatic Rolls Royce to date, Wraith was born of a desire to create something a little more daring. The name alone evokes a sense of noir. And the striking fastback roofline gives a dynamic silhouette that enhances its power, style and drama. Recently our team in South Africa teamed up with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Sandton - Daytona Group to shoot the Rolls-Royce Wraith Inspired by Film Edition.
Firstly we would like to thank Justin Divaris, the CEO of the Daytona Group, who are the sole importers of Rolls-Royce, McLaren, Aston Martin and Brabus as well as owning the rights to sell various other high end brands too, for allowing us the opportunity to photograph this special edition Rolls-Royce. According to Rolls-Royce, The new 'Inspired By' theme is a new Bespoke concept that complements the existing Collection Car programmes. It further broadens the appeal of a Bespoke Rolls-Royce for their discerning customers. While Collection Cars embodies the pinnacle of Rolls-Royce Bespoke capabilities with a limited production volume, ‘Inspired By’ models introduce an element of choice in terms of content. This comes with unlimited production volumes over a restricted period of time. The Wraith we had the privilege of shooting was the 'Inspired by Film Edition' and is truly something special. The Film edition is based around Drama, projecting an inimitable presence, exuding an effortless sense of cool.
Upon seeing the car for the first time, you can’t help but dwell in the sheer magnificence of a Rolls-Royce Motor Car, almost doubting if what you are seeing is actually real. The colour of the Wraith Inspired by Film is Inspired by the magnificence of the silver screen, all colouring is influenced by silver and black with warm notes added from the macassar ebony cross-banded veneer.
The details are impeccable in that the Spirit of Ecstasy is solid silver and reflects the glamour and allure of a Hollywood movie siren, no details are left untouched in that Rolls-Royce designers, engineers and craftspeople are inspired to create the best cars in the world and at the same time the pioneers of the music, film and fashion industries use their inspiration to create icons that redefine our lives. Across all these industries, and between all these visionary people, one narrative unites them all: the Power of Inspiration.
What lies beneath the beautiful hood is a 6.6 litre, twin-turbo V12 engine that propels the Wraith from 0-100 in 4.5 seconds, coming from the 465KW and 800NM and is the fastest Rolls-Royce Car currently on offer.
With many thanks to Daytona Group.
