There's seemingly no limit to the company's creativity.
Once the media days have wrapped up, visitors will be able to enjoy exhibitions from the world's leading automakers at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. It's another welcome return to some level of normality after many of last year's major auto shows were either canceled outright or forced to go virtual.
At Shanghai this year, two of the highlights so far include Lincoln's stunning Zephyr Reflection concept and the coupe-SUV called the Ford Evos. Never one to be outdone, Rolls-Royce has revealed three of its own gorgeous luxury vehicles which the company says shows the endless possibilities of Rolls-Royce Bespoke.
The three vehicles are the Ghost Extended Urban Sanctuary, the Black Badge Cullinan Mid-Century Modern, and the Wraith Black Badge Pop Explosion. This custom Cullinan and Wraith are finished in especially eye-popping colors but all three cars are a demonstration of how no two Rolls-Royce cars need to be the same.
Rolls-Royce goes to extraordinary lengths to find man-made objects or natural structures to inspire its models. In the case of the Ghost seen here, it is said to recall "the 'cracked ice' effect of the wooden window shutters on a pavilion building within Shanghai's storied Yu Yuan Gardens." The open-pore Obsidian Ayous veneer is un-lacquered and looks beautiful within the Navy Blue/Cashmere Grey interior.
Other touches for this special Ghost include Lime Green interior stitching while outside, there is a more restrained Gunmetal and Jubilee Silver two-tone finish. Look closely and you'll spot the thin Lime Green coachline and the same color on the wheel pinstripe.
The Cullinan is more dramatic. Already an imposing SUV, this one gets unusual Segani Green paint. The company drew inspiration from mid-century artifacts like an Eames Rocking Chair and a Fender Stratocaster guitar for this model. Inside, the color scheme is a mix of Serenity Green and Black with a veneer in Technical Fiber.
The Wraith coupe more than lives up to its Pop Explosion designation. It's finished in a two-tone GT Blue and Arctic White with a coachline in Koi Red. The flamboyant cabin is a blend of Arctic White and Muscari Blue with a special Starlight Headliner in red. The geometric patterns of the veneer are said to be inspired by the windows of skyscrapers. In the rear of the cabin, there is a 'Waterfall' positioned between the two seats. Somehow, the Wraith pulls off this vivid color scheme while retaining the opulence inherent in every Rolls. Together, the three vehicles prove once again that Rolls-Royce is unsurpassed in its ability to craft the most unique luxury cars in the world.
