If a gold-decorated Rolls Royce Wraith is your definition of luxury and exclusivity, then the Mansory Wraith Palm Edition 999 is the automobile for you.
The German tuner claims to want to redefine the boundaries for opulent automobiles, and what better way to do it than with a Rolls Royce (the crown of the automotive world) garnished in pure gold.
Yes, all gold-decorated elements were actually artfully finished – as Mansory says – with 999 pure gold, and if that was not enough, the company can and will (upon request) gold plate all metallic parts – door handles, sill guards, radiator grille, you name it.
The Rolls’ exterior details aren’t limited to the gold accents and lavish color scheme, as Mansory created a new body-kit for the luxurious automobile, changing even the headlights to those of the Rolls Royce Dawn in the process.
The interior was revised in conjunction with Mansory’s upholstery team to purportedly outperform the luxury for which the British car manufacturer is famous for; whether Mansory outperformed Rolls Royce, remains to be debated.
The standard model’s 6.6-litre V12 is found under the hood, but the stock output of 632 PS and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque was uprated to 740 PS and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) – enough to take the car from naught to 100 km/h (62mph) in 4.4 seconds, all the way to a maximum speed of 300 km/h (187mph).
