Is Mansory's Gold-Plated Wraith Palm Edition 999 The Most Opulent Rolls-Royce Ever?

|

Mansory wants to redefine the boundaries for opulent automobiles with this gold-plated Rolls Royce Wraith.

And we’re not saying this, but the tuner itself, as the Palm Edition 999 is one of only nine Mansory-made unique Wraiths available worldwide – making this one even more exclusive.

In fact, the Swiss company says the two-tone, white-golden paintwork alone brings the coupe Roller to a whole new level; well, if you’re going to shock someone with sheer opulence – just like Mansory wants – that’s is the way to do it.

Anyway, putting hue aside for a moment, the Wraith actually comes with retuned aerodynamics, as the body-kit was crafted entirely from carbon-fiber, from the front spoiler with separately integrated LED and daytime running lights, front fender, side skirts, all the way to the reworked rear of the vehicle with a new apron that stretches to the rear and roof spoiler – as Mansory tells the story.

So, looking at the whole picture, it’s obvious that the Wraith went through a thorough makeover, sporting mind-blowing attention to details.

All of its original badges have been replaced with logos and plaques finished in 999 pure gold. But if that isn’t enough for the average customer, Mansory is ready to gold plate all metallic surfaces – from the door handles all the way to the radiator grille and the Spirit of Ecstasy (although we believe Rolls Royce is offering the latter straight from the factory as an option).

And the same story goes for the interior, as the cabin features gold plated elements and masterfully crafted leather furnishings taking their color cue from the exterior paintjob.

To top it off, Mansory paid attention to the beast under the hood as well, making the 6.6-litre V12 churn out 729 hp and an irresponsible 1000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque – values that push the 2.4-ton automobile from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, all the way to a maximum top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
