But you simply must have it.
When you claim to make the best car in the world, you better have the goods to back it up. And Rolls-Royce goes to serious lengths to ensure it does. Cows raised on Scandinavian mountains provide the soft-touch leather its cars come swathed in, while dozens of wooden interior components are handcrafted by woodwork experts to deliver the look of an antique piece of furniture. However, it is the star-studded headliner that truly embodies the carmaker’s ultra-luxurious ethos.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith we recently had the pleasure of shooting in San Francisco came with the $12,925 Starlight Headliner. Custom designs, say to form the exact constellation that would have appeared overhead the day you were born (don’t worry a planetarium is consulted to get it right), takes 17 hours to complete.
Hundreds of tiny fiber optic lights perforate the leather roof and the end result is nothing short of sensational. On top of that you get a coupe that comes powered by a majestic 624-hp 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine and a ride like nothing else on the road. Besides this outrageous optional extra, there’s plenty more to like about the stunning Rolls-Royce Wraith, which you can find out about in our latest unboxing video. Special thanks to Los Gatos Luxury Cars in Los Gatos, California, for letting us shoot the car.
