Miami and Rolls-Royce go together like peanut butter and jelly.
We were recently invited to an automotive media event called Topless In Miami, a driving event for convertibles and panoramic roof cars. Before the event began, representatives from local dealership Braman Rolls-Royce Miami introduced us to a new line of limited edition models called the Miami Collection.
Miami is a huge market for Rolls-Royce, which made it a perfect location to reveal a limited series of new cars. Rolls-Royce is no stranger to building special, limited edition models, having just released one called the Wraith Eagle VIII earlier this week. But this Miami Collection is one of the company's rarest creations.
The Miami Collection is a six-car set, split into Miami by Day and Miami by Night designs, each including its own Dawn, Ghost, and Wraith. Rolls-Royce says the two styles are meant to reflect Miami's unique day-to-night lifestyle. The Miami by Day cars are painted in a creamy color called Latte White, which is paired with Seashell (tan) leather along with Oatmeal and Dark Spice accents.
We gravitated more towards the Miami by Night cars, which are painted in a deep purple color called Dark Indigo. Every time we drove past the cars, the paint changed hues from black to a more noticeable purple. The stunning paint is paired with Sunrise (white) leather with purple silk accents.
All six cars include a palm tree coachline and a matching stitched palm tree on the headrests. There is also a unique plaque and kickplate that reads, 'The Miami Collection 1 of 6.' Prices range from $430,000 to $470,000 and five of the six are actually still up for grabs. Each is powered by a twin-turbocharged V12 engine mated to an eight-speed transmission paired with Rolls-Royce's legendary Magic Carpet Ride air suspension. If you live in Miami or simply love Miami culture, we highly suggest looking at one of these cars instead of a "standard" Rolls-Royce.
