The Bespoke Collective of the House of Rolls-Royce introduces limited edition Adamas Collection that consists of just 40 Black Badge Wraiths and 30 Black Badge Dawns. The collection’s name, a Greek word which means ‘untameable’, ‘invincible’ and also ‘diamond’, was picked up to describe the darker side of contemporary craftsmanship.
For the first time in history, the Spirit of Ecstasy is formed of machined carbon fibre.The entrancing figure is engineered from 294 layers of aerospace grade carbon fibre, which takes 68 hours to produce with a technical weave angle of precisely 25 degrees. She stands on a specially created titanium base, vapour blasted to adopt a darkened aesthetic, bearing the words ‘BLACK BADGE ADAMAS’, and the infinity logo.
The darker version of Mandarin Orange interior for Dawn and Cobalto Blue interior for Wraith from the original Rolls-Royce Black Badge collection is the inspiration behind a hypnotic Aphrodite Red over Black and Morpheus Blue over Black two-tone body colors of the new cars. Black grille vanes are added to the already darkened grille surround of Black Badge.
The highlight of the interior is the clock, encrusted with black diamonds. Harnessing the carbon structure in its most explicit form, 88 laboratory-grown diamonds form the Black Badge infinity symbol, providing a jewellery-like reminder of the restless spirits of the inhabitants of these motor cars. Mounted upon a carbon fibre back-plate, the black diamonds are perfectly engineered to deliver exquisite clarity and colour. The face of the clock is embellished with machined aluminium chaplets and a polished aluminium inner bezel, adding dramatic detail to the contrasting white face.
The starlight headliner of Wraith Adamas features 1,340 individual fibre optic lights that are configured as though forming the molecular structure of carbon as it becomes a diamond, forming a motif reminiscent of a powerful spine running through the interior cabin. Available in either hue, co-ordinating perfectly with either colour scheme, the starlight headliner for the first time incorporates graded shading, using varying tones of the chosen colour palette to accentuate the subject.
Pearlescent effect leather reflects the exterior hue. Offset by a two tone steering wheel and accentuated by rich woven black leather on the door panniers and transmission tunnel, the interior celebrates the darker side of luxury craftsmanship in even the smallest of details.
The Collection premieres a new dark brushed metal fascia, designed to correspond with the carbon fibre. Cold to the touch, this metal finish flows through the motor car, through both front and rear centre console lids, emphasising the unbreakable strength at the core of Black Badge Adamas.
