Rolls-Royce Dawn in Sardinia, Italy

Rolls-Royce Draws Some Italian Inspiration For Two Custom Models

A Rolls-Royce vehicle is already something special to behold. But a custom Rolls-Royce takes that to another dimension.

Recently at the British luxury automaker's Summer Studio in Sardinia, Italy, Rolls-Royce unveiled a Dawn and Wraith that are inspired by the atmosphere and vibrancy of Porto Cervo in Italy. The theme of the two models is “Dusk until Dawn.”

Taking up the Dusk theme is the Wraith that is finished in a two-tone sliver paintjob with a purple stripe running along the beltline. Open the doors and you're greeted with shades of blue, purple, slate, and black to evoke "feeling of calm as night falls." Finishing the interior is ostrich leather on the seats.

The Dawn takes up the 'Dawn' theme with an exterior finished in emerald green that is said to "capture the vibrancy and vivid colour of the Porto Cervo seascape." The interior comes with seashell and green leather, and open teak wood trim. But the feature that sets this Dawn apart is the dashboard that features emeralds and mother of pearl set into white gold.

“Patrons of our marque delight in inhabiting some of the world’s most beautiful enclaves. Sardinia, and its stunning Costa Smerelda, serves as the perfect backdrop for Rolls-Royce to host these patrons of true luxury in an intimate setting; The Rolls-Royce Summer Studio. The stunning Bespoke Wraith and emerald embellished Dawn, inspired by the sights and colours of Porto Cervo, have been commissioned in the spirit that so many of our customers delight in,” said Isobel Dando, General Manager of Future Retail, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
