Rolls-Royce Presents Wraith “Inspired by Music.” 

Rolls Royce has revealed a one-off Wraith ‘Inspired by Music’ special edition.

The luxurious limousine, which completes the trilogy of three ‘inspired’ editions, has been launched to showcase Rolls’ Bespoke Audio system. The first edition, Inspired by Film, marks Rolls-Royce’s long association with the silver screen, whereas the second, Inspired by Fashion, enables customers to commission a true piece of automotive haute couture.

The centrepiece of this third special edition is the 1,300W 18-channel sound system, which offers an extraordinary clarity of sound, and it comprises of two highly powerful bass speakers, seven tweeters and seven mid-range speakers. Two ‘exciter’ speakers ensure the output perfectly imitates the way music is experienced in a live setting and microphones are used to monitor any exterior noises. The stereo’s outputs are then adjusted to counteract background distractions.

The Bespoke Audio system took two years to develop and was created from scratch by a team of the best automotive audio engineers in the world. The team work closely with Rolls-Royce interior designers to ensure the system was perfectly adjusted to the interior, which now features copper detailing on the dashboard, speaker covers, seatbelt ‘bullets’ and even the clock’s outer bezel is designed to echo the look of vinyl records.

To complement all this brushed copper detailing, there is a ‘Lyrical Copper’ exterior paint finish too, and according to Rolls Royce, the intention is to reference the copper used in high-end audio systems.

Mr. Ötvös, Rolls-Royce Chief Executive Officer, stated that the ‘Inspired by Music’ edition “… appeals to those looking to Rolls-Royce for unique and creative motor cars. Its effortlessly cool appearance complements the superior Bespoke Audio system; the contemporary use of copper creates an atmospheric setting for the most encompassing music system on the market,”  

Rolls-Royce says the Inspired by Music Wraith is strictly a one-off and although the firm isn’t disclosing how much it costs, prices are expected to start from £192,095.
