Rolls-Royce announces the limited 'Neon Nights' variants of the Dawn, Wraith and Cullinan Black Badge, a vibrant colour palette inspired by plants and animals.

25 Nov 2020 | International News : U.K.


Any pre-conceived notion that Rolls-Royce's Black Badge variants all have to be black is comprehensively laid to rest by the super-solid Neon Nights colours. Created initially for clients in the United States, three further iterations of each colour are available for commission worldwide, making a limited run of just four of each colour.

Comprising of the Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan Black Badge, each in a different hue, inspiration comes from the natural world.

The Wraith Black Badge, finished in Lime Rock Green, is inspired by the Australian Green Tree Frog
The Wraith Black Badge is finished in Lime Rock Green, a near-luminous hue naturally bestowed on the Australian Green Tree Frog, which Rolls-Royce Bespoke Paint Specialist Sami Coultas first encountered on a trip to Tamworth, north of Sydney. The interior is swathed in Scivaro Grey leather, with Lime Rock Green accents in the form of stitching and piping.

The striking Eagle Rock Red created for the Dawn Black Badge mimics the flowers of 'Ohi'a lehua, an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. The interior is finished in Selby Grey leather with Koi Red stitching and piping details.

For the Cullinan, the Bespoke Collective looked to an exotic butterfly, the Rhetus Periander, for inspiration. Known as the Periander metalmark, this species is found across Central and South America, with the vibrancy of its wings faithfully captured in the Cullinan's Mirabeau Blue finish. The Arctic White leather interior detailed in Lime Rock Green provides a dramatic contrast.

In all three cars, the Technical Fibre fascia is embellished with a spectacular graphic. The paint effect provides an intense neon glow and depicts the distortion of artificial light with speed. The Neon Nights cars follow a suite of Black Badges that grabbed headlines at the 2019 Pebble Beach event, which saw the Ghost, the Wraith and the Dawn finished in Bespoke pastel colours.

Such was the demand for these cars, the colour palette was embraced and developed, inspiring a new and dynamic colour palette for Black Badge. Just three further examples of each colour will be made available for commission worldwide.
