The Black Paint Alone Costs $11k On The Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge


This is the Rolls-Royce for millennials? Supposedly.

Rolls-Royce is anxious to change its image, somewhat. For decades the iconic UK carmaker was known as a rich guy’s brand. More specifically, old rich guys. Today, however, Rolls-Royce is under BMW stewardship and it fully understands the need to attract younger buyers because, duh, they’ll be alive for longer at this point. Makes sense. In order to do that, Rolls-Royce had to make some styling and packaging changes to its lineup, such as the Ghost and its coupe counterpart, the Wraith.

Meet the Black Badge, a package aimed specifically at rich millennials. Wait, there are rich millennials? Of course. Think Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and the rest of the tech startup crowd. Billionaires, if you will.
