Shooting star headliner and illuminated wood panelling are introduced in 55 bespoke cars

Rolls-Royce has produced 55 versions of its Wraith called the Luminary Collection that feature a bespoke list of features, including a new shooting star headliner.

Building on the starlight headliner already offered by Rolls-Royce, the shooting star illumination can be switched on via the touch of a button. The 1340 fibre optic lights illuminate eight shooting stars at random.

The stars form one part of the cabin’s lighting, which also includes new illuminated wood, the first time such a feature has been included in a car. The Tudor Oak wood is sourced from the Czech Republic and has been selected for its depth of colour and the dense grain structure.

Handwoven stainless steel fabric that’s as thin as 0.08mm is also featured on the transmission tunnel and door panels, while the seats come wrapped in tan and anthracite leather. Buyers can specify a Seashell coloured leather in the rear if they prefer.

The car’s colour is also said to take inspiration from early morning light. Called Sunburst Grey, the shade features copper tones that become visible when faced with light to mimic the tone of the sky during sunrise.

Can a more sporting edge to the driving experience work in a Rolls, while maintaining the ultimate in luxury and ride refinement?

No changes have been made to the car’s powertrain, so it retains a 6.6-litre V12 engine outputting 623bhp.

Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: “Wraith Luminary 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.”

With just 55 cars due for production, expect a hefty price increase on the regular Wraith’s £240,768 starting figure. In typical Rolls-Royce fashion, the unique specification of each version will likely ensure no two cars cost the same.

"This is a motor car that celebrates visionaries who achieve eminence in their respective fields."

Translation. 

"This is a motor car that celebrates the achievements of visionary tax lawyers to insert so many loopholes in their respective countries' tax laws" .

Steam cars are due a revival.
