Rolls-Royce launched its Black Badge fleet with Wraith in 2016, Dawn in 2017 and Cullinan in 2019. And for anyone who thought that the Black Badge cars are only built in black by default, think again. The British luxury carmaker has launched ‘Neon Nights’, a bright neon-painted limited collection of Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan models.
Initially, Rolls-Royce designed just one version of each of the three cars for its clients in the US. But, these iterations will now be available worldwide, limited to three Neon Nights variants each. In total, there will be only be four neon Wraiths, four Dawns and four Cullinans.
These bold and vivid colours are inspired by exotic plants and animals, such as the Australian green tree frog, a Hawaiian tree flower and a striking butterfly species.
The Wraith is painted with a Lime Rock Green shade, prepared by Rolls-Royce paint specialist Sami Coultas after he encountered the frog on his trip to North Sydney. The interiors model a Scivaro grey leather finish that is again given a light accent of the green hue in form of stitching and piping.
The Dawn gets an alluring Eagle Rock Red paint, which resembles the flowers of ‘Ōhi‘a lehua, a native Hawaiian evergreen tree. Inside, the red stitching and piping details are combined with Selby Grey leather finish.
The third rendition is of the Black Badge Cullinan, which was first launched in India this year in January. Its Neon Nights avatar shows off a near-electric Mirabeau blue colour, which mimics Rhetus Periander, a butterfly species found in Central and South America. Inside, a white leather and green piping contrasts the exterior.
The launch of Neon Nights edition follows 2019’s ‘Pebble Beach Pastel’ collection of Black Badge Ghost, Wraith and Dawn that were colour-washed in attractive pastel hues.
