Rolls-Royce to build nine special Wraiths, ‘Inspired by British Music’

Rolls-Royce has announced a special collection of nine Rock & Roll-inspired Wraiths, celebrating the company’s long association with many of Britain’s greatest rock stars.

The Who’s legendary frontman, Roger Daltrey, has commissioned the first two, with more iconic names from Britain’s rich music folklore to be announced shortly.  Each car will be unique in design, with a proportion of its value going to charities, including the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The first of Daltrey’s two Wraiths features the famous ‘bullseye’ logo and a laser-etched depiction of his famous microphone swing in the Wraith’s door-flights.  The second Wraith has been designed in conjunction with Mike McInnerney – creator of the famous artwork featured on the Who’s ‘Tommy’ album.  This car will be the last of the nine built, and promises to be a genuinely one-off collectors’ piece, inspired by the album’s iconic sleeve design.  It will be auctioned in April 2017 to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
