Rolls-Royce Motor Cars presented, for public display, the rarely seen trio of Black Badge cars for the first time at a specially-prepared Pavilion located in Puteri Harbour, Johor.
The trio comprised of two Wraith Black Badge cars (fastback coupe) – the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever built – and Ghost Black Badge (saloon). Both models are bestowed with 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 engines producing 624hp/603 hp capable of hitting 100 km/h from standstill in 4.5 and 4.8 seconds.
Black Badge Rolls-Royce vehicles differ from standard models with bolder styling, use of contemporary materials such as carbon fibre and subtle engineering enhancements for added performance. The lengths of customisation is such that Rolls-Royce customers can choose from over 44,000 different colours.
“We are confident of a positive response to Black Badge, as Malaysia offers good driving conditions and a growing customer base of successful people who are younger and dynamic. Malaysia has a vibrant luxury and car culture. The development of Johor’s luxury ‘hot spots’ such as Puteri Harbour and the Iskandar region, along with interest from potential customers, contributed to our decision to launch this exclusive range of cars here for the first time in Malaysia,” said Quill Motorcars Sdn Bhd, Director, Anas Zawawi Khalid.
Since it was launched, the Black Badge series has made noticeable presence in the ultra-luxury landscape. The series is Rolls-Royce’s response to an elite group of clients
Black Badge is Rolls-Royce’s response to a small and select group of clients who have asked the marque for motor cars with specific, focused characteristics that reflect their different take on life, success and the luxury they consume.
