Rolls-Royce have just announced the latest car to don their Spirit of Ecstasy in the form of the Nautical Wraith, a one-off luxury four-wheeler inspired by a luxury no-wheeler. Yes, the Nautical Wraith takes its design traits from racing yachts, and as such possesses all the grace you’d expect from an ocean cruiser.
This luxurious Rolls wears a two-tone maritime paint job, blending Arabian Blue with English White on its hull. The car is based on the chassis of the Ghost and, with the paint job, really does evoke notions both high-end land and sea.
While the Arabian Blue paintwork on the exterior naturally hints at the Wraith’s naval beginnings, the cabin turns things up a notch with some intricate marquetry in the dashboard which pays homage to decking on yachts. There’s also an inlaid anchor motif found in the veneer of the dashboard (made of Santos Palisander and Tudor Oak), just to really emphasise the point!
The interior of the Nautical Wraith also features some plush upholstered seats made with Forest Fall leather and finished with Navy Blue piping. There was even time for Rolls to add in a Starlight Headliner to make things that extra bit special.
Under the hood of this Rolls-Royce, Joes will find the Wraith packing a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine with a rather lovely 624hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. All this means that the Wraith is the most powerful model in Rolls’ line-up.
The Rolls-Royce Nautical Wrath is a one-off which has been made for a lucky unnamed international customer but pricing for the normal Wraith starts at around the £230,000. Or to the buyer of the Nautical, probably just a drop in the ocean… (Sorry). Head over to the Rolls Royce Website for more Wraith specs.
