Rolls-Royce has unveiled a one-off special version of its Wraith coupé, which it says has been inspired by the game of rugby.

Among the bespoke touches applied to this Wraith is a new paint colour, which is designed to match the shirts worn by rugby players. The English rose insignia, which has been featured as part of the sport since 1871, has been embroidered onto the car's seats and also features on a special plaque on the footplate.

A limited collection of rugby balls has also been created to go alongside the car.

This special Wraith features the same 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine as the regular car, which produces 624bhp and is capable of getting the 2435kg Wraith to 60mph in 4.6 seconds.

Rolls-Royce regional director James Crichton said: "This truly unique Wraith emphasises vision and individuality, inspired by the role it plays within a team. While the game of rugby may have been inspired by the act of one individual, it is one of the world’s most popular team sports. In a similar vein, this one car represents the efforts of the team of engineers and craftspeople working at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood."
