Rolls-Royce is taking a page from the ‘80s by introducing neon-themed special-edition vehicles. The British automaker is rolling out a handful of Wraith, Dawn, and Cullinans in vibrant colors. Oddly enough, all vehicles are Black Badge variants with dark accents and increased performance.
The special Wraith Black Badge gets a Lime Rock Green color, inspired by the Australian green tree frog. Inside, gray leather seats pair with green stitching. The Dawn convertibles are painted Eagle Rock Red after the flowers on an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. Grey leather with Koi Red stitching complete the look. Finally, the Cullinan features a Mirabeau Blue paint job that mimics the color of the Rhetus periander, a butterfly species found in Central and South America. Open the doors, and you’ll find a white interior with green accents. A striking neon graphic can be found on the dashboard inside all models.
Don’t be fooled by the bright colors; These cars pack formidable powertrains. The Wraith Black Badge makes 624 hp and 642 lb-ft of torque from a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12 in Black Badge guise. The Dawn Black Badge is similarly impressive at 593 hp and 619 lb-ft. The Cullinan Black Badge is about as powerful, and it boasts a robust 664 lb-ft.
Rolls-Royce initially created a neon Wraith, Dawn, and Cullinan for the U.S., and now it’s expanding the lineup to three further iterations of each color for the world. The special-edition cars follow a series of Black Badge pastel vehicles that debuted at the 2019 Pebble Beach event.
