At the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, Rolls-Royce presents a collection of three motor cars: one-off Black Badge Cullinan, a new Ghost Extended Urban Sanctuary and the eye-catching Wraith Black Badge Pop Explosion.
NEW GHOST EXTENDED URBAN SANCTUARY
The Urban Sanctuary presents an elevated expression of Parquetry. Resembling the ‘cracked ice’ effect of the wooden window shutters on a pavilion building within Shanghai’s Yu Yuan Gardens, this geometric mosaic of wood pieces is finished in un-lacquered open-pore Obsidian Ayous veneer.
The interior of the car features a front-to-back Navy Blue and Cashmere Grey two-tone colorway. The reclinable Serenity Seating with calf rests is inspired by the configuration provisioned by private jets. This elegant treatment is scythed with Lime Green contrast stitching; a theme that continues into the luggage compartment where a Bespoke Luggage set is stowed, finished in matching Navy Blue canvas, Cashmere Grey hide and Lime Green contrast. Urban Sanctuary’s coachwork is finished in a gracefully subdued Gunmetal and Jubilee Silver two-tone with a Lime Green coachline and wheel pinstripe.
BLACK BADGE CULLINAN MID-CENTURY MODERN
Black Badge Cullinan’s Bespoke Segano Green coachwork is inspired by the bold colors applied to mid-century artefacts such as the Fender Stratocaster and Eames Rocking Chair.
Demonstrating that the subversive Black Badge series of motor cars are frequently rendered in colors far beyond Black, this bright expression of the Rolls-Royce of SUVs also features a Bespoke Serenity Green and contrasting Black interior colorway, punctuated with a Technical Fibre veneer.
WRAITH BLACK BADGE POP EXPLOSION
The inspiration behind the unique Wraith Black Badge is the dramatic use of color. The two-tone Bespoke GT Blue and Arctic White coachwork is finished with a hand-painted Koi Red coachline and resolved with a bold motif, inspired by a volcanic eruption against a menacing blue sky.
Flashes of Koi Red are also used on the Muscari Blue and Arctic White interior suite. To dramatize the ambience, a red Starlight Headliner was selected. Additionally, the motor car’s Technical Fibre fascia veneer has been hand-painted with a geometric pattern inspired by skyscraper windows illuminated by night.
