Rolls-Royce has unveiled a truly mesmerising collection of limited Rolls-Royce Wraiths where only 55 indulgent elitists will get to sample – it’s called the Wraith Luminary.

Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös said, “Wraith Luminary is a stunning Collection Car. It speaks directly of our contemporary Rolls-Royce brand – progressive and trailblazing; the pinnacle in handcrafted luxury. This is a car that celebrates visionaries who achieve eminence in their respective fields. Indeed, this collection is for the world’s luminaries.”The colour of choice for these 55 units is a newly-developed Sunburst Grey that’s complemented by a hand-painted Sunburst Motif coachline, hand-painted Wake Channel Lines on the bonnet and pinstripes applied to the wheel centres, each in Saddlery Tan – only Google can enlightened you of that flowery language.

The interior is glazed with Tudor Oak wood, sourced from Czech Republic’s forests but here’s the best part – it illuminates. Yes, the wood panels light up! 176 LEDs are embedded into the Tudor Oak’s surface for an effect that mimics the trailing light of a shooting star, at the touch of a button.It’s a massive step up from the mere glow of the 1340 fibre optic lights that create Rolls-Royce’s famous “starlight headliner”. Taking nearly 20 hours to configure, eight shooting stars fire at random, predominantly over the front seats – a sight that would definitely drop jaws if not undergarments.

As a final touch, each car bears a ‘WRAITH LUMINARY COLLECTION – ONE OF FIFTY-FIVE’ engraved on hand-polished stainless steel. In Rolls-Royce’s press release, they even ended it the quote, “Rolls-Royce is Bespoke” – says it all really.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
