One of only nine bespoke Rolls-Royce Wraith models, produced by Rolls-Royce to celebrate the global success of British popular music and one dedicated to the 'fifth Beatle' the late Sir George Martin, has been acquired by the owner of Studio434, Rodger Dudding and has now joined Rodger's extensive collection of cars at his facility in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

The Sir George Martin's signature Wraith has a number of important detailing elements including a celebration of Sir George's 30 number-one hit singles with embroidery of each song title in the rear 'waterfall' and the producer's signature stitched into the headrests. Commenting on the car, Sir George's son Giles said, "My father had a huge impact on British music during his career and this magnificent car is a tribute to a lifetime of achievement."

The Wraith was sold at an H&H Classics auction held at Kensington Palace to Rodger Dudding, a former Naval apprentice, and £66,667 ($120,280) of the price paid by Rodger went to The Fly Navy Heritage Trust of which Sir George was an ambassador and a previous observer in the Fleet Air Arm.
