Rolls-Royce unveiled two bespoke cars at their Summer Studio in Sardinia. The cars were commissioned to reflect the atmosphere and vibrancy of one of the world’s most exclusive and glamorous enclaves; Porto Cervo. The marina, which resides on the Costa Smerelda, is embodied in two Bespoke Rolls-Royces themed from ‘Dusk until Dawn’; a Wraith, Rolls most powerful car ever created, and a Dawn, the recently launched Drophead Coupé.
The ambient hues of dusk are imbued on the Bespoke Wraith. A two-tone silver exterior reflects the dimming of the day’s light, whilst a purple feature line hints at the interior mood of the car. The Spirit of Ecstasy, the figurine that has graced the bonnet of each Rolls-Royce since 1911, casts a soft illumination from her position upon the motor car’s signature grille. On opening the coach doors, the mysterious aura of twilight is depicted using shades of blue, purple, slate and black, bestowing the feeling of calm as night falls. The use of ostrich leather adds depth and texture to the exquisitely furnished cabin.
In stark contrast, Dawn has been specified to capture the vibrancy and vivid color of the Porto Cervo seascape. A unique emerald green exterior is offset against a distinct seashell and green leather interior. Open-pore teak encapsulates the occupants, while a bespoke teak boot floor mat has been created for the luggage compartment, continuing the nautical theme.
At the heart of this unique motor car lies art within art; precious emeralds and mother of pearl are set into white gold and presented on the fascia as a timeless memory of the island. Set in the shape of the emblem of Porto Cervo, the occupants are reminded of the island each time they gaze down.
