Rolls-Royce Releases ‘Black Badge’ Variants of Wraith and Ghost in Hong Kong
Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge and Ghost Black Badge, first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, are today presented together for the first time in Hong Kong.
Rolls-Royce Black Badge speaks to the darker, more assertive, confident and demanding aesthetic of a new breed of Rolls-Royce customer – today’s generation of young, self-empowered, self-confident rule-breakers who are uncompromising and unapologetic in their choice of living and lifestyle.
Their predecessors include Howard Hughes and our own Charles Rolls and they follow the road less travelled and live the unconventional life, darkly obsessed by their own pursuits and accomplishments from which they derive a pure adrenaline rush.
Wraith Black Badge
Already the most powerful Rolls-Royce in the world at 624hp (465kW), Wraith has always been the most driver-focused car in Rolls-Royce’s model range.
Wraith Black Badge benefits from 70Nm more torque, bringing it to 870Nm, in addition to tweaked air suspension and an upgraded gearbox leading to more spirited driving. With this, Rolls-Royce has produced an even more driver-focused, agile Wraith, while at the same time preserving the intrinsic elements of the effortless Rolls-Royce magic carpet ride.
The interior of the first Wraith Black Badge to arrive in Hong Kong is swathed in a combination of Black and Mugello Red leather for a bold and striking look.
Ghost Black Badge
Ghost Black Badge benefits from a power increase of 40hp (30kW) to 603hp (450kW) and a torque boost of 60Nm to 840Nm, whilst upgrades to the 8-speed automatic transmission give Ghost Black Badge an added sense of urgency in how it delivers its power.
In the first Ghost Black Badge for Hong Kong, black interior leather combines with the vibrant yet sophisticated colour of Tailored Purple, giving the cabin a more edgy feel.
