Rolls-Royce Wraith Makes A Bold Statement With Bespoke Paint Scheme

If you’re the type of person who can afford to buy a brand new Rolls-Royce, odds are you’re not going to settle for “factory-standard”; instead, you’ll probably invest even more money into making your car stand out among its peers.

This particular Wraith, recently a resident of the automaker’s Abu Dhabi dealership, was commissioned with a bespoke dual-tone exterior, combining Salamanca Blue and Ensign Red to create a truly unique aesthetic.

The contrasting look is further enhanced by the red stripes running along the car’s shoulder line, while the interior features mostly red leather to go with the wood inserts found on the dashboard, center console and door panels.

It may not be the flashiest Rolls-Royce cabin we’ve ever seen, but then again, that much red will always catch the eye and make your car’s interior “pop” – which was probably what this Wraith’s owner intended all along.

So what do you guys think about the color combo? We’ve seen Salamanca Blue on other Wraiths before, but having Ensign Red everywhere above the shoulder line (bonnet, roof, pillars, boot) gives this particular luxury coupe a different vibe. We’re also wondering if the owner of the car is an FC Barcelona fan, but that’s neither here nor there.

The Wraith packs a 6.6-liter twin turbo V12 engine, putting down 632 PS (624 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. Despite its 2,4-tonne (5,291 lbs) weight, it can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds.

      Yup. I am always happy to see people with cars that are not simply shades of black, white, silver, and gray. However, this just doesn’t look good on that Rolls. I am sure the owner likes it so that is all that matters but yeeessshhhhh.

    WHAT’S IRONIC ABOUT THIS COLOR COMBO IS THAT IT EMPHASIZES WHERE THE DESIGN GOES AWRY. IN PROFILE THE BLUE EMPHASIZES AN ELEGANT FENDER LINE FRONT TO REAR. THE RED SHOW EXACTLY WHERE ROLLS ROYALLY SCREWED UP. PEAL THAT PART OFF AND PUT ON AN ELEGANT GREENHOUSE THEN YOU’D HAVE A NICE LOOKING CAR. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dddedd709ef45ba6133683c589b03e73055e7541d447f4c7265897c22419ce76.jpg

    This is by far the worst looking Rolls or Bentley I have EVER seen. Absolutely hideous. Who is the fool who did this?
