After several special editions, the Rolls-Royce Wraith is receiving another makeover from Bespoke. But this time, it aims to be “one-of-a-kind,” and will be a part of Bespoke’s theme called “Dusk Until Dawn.”
The unique Wraith was unveiled at the Rolls-Royce’s exclusive Summer Studio event in Porto Cervo, Italy, thus it was dubbed as the Rolls-Royce Porto Cervo Wraith according to a report.
To represent the “Dusk” in the theme, the Wraith is finished in two-tone silver exterior, with the engine hood and the roof being just a bit darker than the rest of the car’s body. But what separates the Wraith cannot be found on its exterior as it is far more impressive once you go inside.
Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by the “Porto Cervo Wraith–One of One” insert in the door sill. Everything is finished in shades of blue, purple, slate and black. In detail, you’ll see that the inside is made of ostrich leather and fine wood veneer. The four seats are wrapped in purple leather with white stitching and silver “RR” logos on the headrests.
But the main highlight comes from the infotainment system, where Bespoke placed the emblem of Porto Cervo made of emerald stones, mother of pearl and white gold. The upper dashboard is similar with emerald-like top and white lower section.
Anyone who buys the Porto Cervo Wraith will receive a leather headrest designed by London-based artist Mo Coppoletta.
Under the hood, you’ll find Wraith’s standard engine and transmission—6.6-liter V-12 that can produce 623 turbocharged horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, which allows the coupe to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 186 mph.
There’s no information about pricing yet, but let’s expect this new Wraith to start at $500,000.

When Rolls Royce revived the Wraith name for a two-door luxury car back in 2013, it remained significantly quiet about its sales for the next three years despite the car being the fastest in the brand’s 100-year history. Its Bespoke division came back with the Wraith Black Badge in March 2016, and finally, the Wraith Nautical Edition, which was inspired by classic racing yachts.
According to a source, the 2016 Rolls Royce Wraith Nautical Edition was designed with luxury racing yachts in mind. It has an interior that pays homage to classic decks seen on yachts and a unique exterior paint and dashboard not used on the standard model.
The focus was given to the car’s exterior design through custom paints, leather and wood veneers.
Outside, it has a sporty design enhanced by the special paint scheme of Arabian Blue. The side body panels and bumper were colored the same blue paint while English White was used on the grille surround, engine hood and roof. The pinstriped coachline with a white anchor motif furthered that yacht-inspired theme the car has.
Inside, the “nautical” theme of the car is even more evident. It has an authentic dashboard veneer that pays homage to the classic decks found on cruiser boats. The seats and door panels are made of brown Forest Fall leather with Navy Blue piping. Its two-tone scheme is also clearly seen on the dark blue carpet.
What’s more, the Nautical Edition is fitted with a Starlight Headliner, a Bespoke tradition that turns the roof into a starlit sky. The brightness of the “star” can be adjusted—whether it is needed to be bright enough for reading or dim for a relaxing grow.
To create that “constellation,” the leather is perforated with 800 to 1,600 holes.
There are no details yet on the drivetrain, but it looks like the Nautical Edition will come with a 6.6-liter V-12 that can produce 623 turbocharged horses and 590 pound-feet of torque. This is enough for the coupe to go from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds and get a top speed of 186 mph.
Rolls-Royce brought the Wraith back to life back in 2013, and it was like awakening a sleeping monster. It was the most powerful in Rolls-Royce’s company, and spawned a couple of off-models such as the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith Sport, the 2015 Rolls-Royce Wraith “Inspired by Fashion,” the 2016 Rolls-Royce Wraith “Palm Edition 999” by Masonry, and others to show off how well received the Wraith is.
It hasn’t gone under change in the past years, and Rolls-Royce didn’t make any attempt at changing it for this year, too, except that it announced a new “Dark” approach named the Black Badge.
The “Dark” approach was something a lot of manufacturers have been gotten into these past years, but Rolls-Royce did more than just adding a darker appearance to its version. The first thing you’ll notice, of course, is the custom black paint and darkened trim elements. Mind you, each of the deep layer of black paint and lacquer was hand polished, making it the “deepest, darkest and most intense black” seen on a Rolls-Royce.
The front grille is surrounded by a darkened chrome trim, as well as the “flying lady” emblem on the hood. The darker treatment can also be seen on the emblems on the grille, fenders and rear deck.
In terms of exterior, the best change comes in the form of the composite carbon fiber, lightweight alloy wheels that are exclusive only to the Wraith and Ghost Black Badge Editions. The wheels, created in four years, feature 22 layers of carbon fiber laid in three axes before being folded over to create a total of 44 layers.
Looking at it more closely, it also has an updated drivetrain. The horsepower remains unchanged at 632, but the torque is increased by 51 pound-feet to 641 pound-feet. It also has a redesigned air suspension, new drive shafts, and an upgraded eight-speed transmission.
Rolls-Royce has yet to release the pricing for the Wraith Black Badge, but the 2016 Wraith started at $304,250, so expect it to come somewhere in the $350,000 range.
