Rolls-Royce Adamas Collection Makes The Black Badge Darker

With its Black Badge editions, Rolls-Royce has definitely proven it has a dark side. Now however, it’s getting darker still with the new Adamas Collection.

Available on either the Wraith coupe or Dawn convertible, the Adamas limited editions take the black treatment even further. As the first Black Badge editions to feature a two-tone paintjob, the Adamas Collection is offered with either an Aphrodite Red or a Morpheus Blue upper, plus the black lower bodywork.

The grille features black vanes, and it’s topped by a first-of-its-kind Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament machined from aerospace-grade carbon fiber. That piece alone, we’re told, takes 68 hours of produce, sitting atop a titanium base.

The treatment continues inside where you can choose either a Mandarin Orange or a Cobalt Blue theme. These are lighter versions of the exterior paintjob, with a unique pearlescent effect. The dashboard clock is framed in 88 black, laboratory-made diamonds on a carbon back-plate, while the starlight headliner (in the Wraith) has been reconfigured to mimic the molecular structure of carbon turning into diamond.

“Adamas is a Collection that fuses the extraordinary competence of our Bespoke craftspeople from the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, with the rebellious spirit of Black Badge,” said Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös. “The result is a motor car for those who seek more than the definitive of engineered luxury conveyance. This is a motor car for the risk-taker who is not afraid to embrace a bold and progressive statement of true and modern luxury, in its darkest form.”

Only 40 examples of the Wraith and 30 of the Dawn will be made as part of the Adamas Collection. And as is typically the case with these ultra-exclusive Rollers, if you have to ask what the price is, you probably can’t afford one.

      Yes, just like other Rolls-Royce with “custom” paint and interior-color, with some new logo here and there, and you get “special edition” Rolls: Phantom Serenity, Ghost Six-Sense, Phantom Tungsten, Dawn Inspired by Fashion, Dawn Neyman Marcus, etc, to name a few. The list will go on and on, as long as new buyers order new Rolls with special design. 🙂
