Rolls-Royce Reveals “Neon Nights” Black Badge Series

Rolls-Royce Black Badge Neon Nights

When one mentions Rolls-Royce, the image of the car that appears in our minds will either be black, white, silver, gold, or some dark blue or red which is synonymous with the luxury brand.

However, the brand has unveiled something to the surprise of many around the world – the ‘Neon Nights’ variants of the Rolls-Royce Dawn, Wraith, and the Cullinan Black Badge

Inspired by exotic plants and animals, the Neon Nights collection was created following the successful 2019 ‘Pastel’ Collection.

“Taking cues from the natural world including an Australian green tree frog, a Hawaiian tree flower, and an exotic butterfly, these limited hues show Black Badge bolder in colour, appealing to patrons around the world who really do dare to be different,” said Sami Coultas, Bespoke Designer Colour & Trim, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Created initially for clients in the United States, three further iterations of each colour are available for commission worldwide, making a limited run of just four of each colour. Comprising here of Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan Black Badge, each in a different hue, inspiration comes from the natural world.

Firstly, we have the Wraith Black Badge which is finished in Lime Rock Green, a near-luminous hue naturally bestowed on the Australian green tree frog, which Rolls-Royce Bespoke Paint Specialist Sami Coultas first encountered on a trip to Tamworth, north of Sydney.

The interior is swathed in Scivaro Grey leather, with Lime Rock Green accents in the form of stitching and piping.

And then comes the Dawn Black Badge which rocks the striking Eagle Rock Red colour that mimics the flowers of ‘Ōhi‘a lehua, an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. The interior is finished in Selby Grey leather with Koi Red stitching and piping details.

For the Cullinan, the Bespoke Collective looked to an exotic butterfly, Rhetus periander for inspiration. Known as the Periander metalmark, this species is found across Central and South America; the vibrancy of its wings is faithfully captured in Cullinan’s Mirabeau Blue finish. The Arctic White leather interior detailed in Lime Rock Green provides a dramatic contrast.

In all three cars, the Technical Fibre fascia is embellished with a spectacular graphic. The paint effect provides an intense neon glow and depicts the distortion of artificial light with speed.

The Neon Nights cars follow a suite of Black Badges that grabbed headlines at the 2019 Pebble Beach event, which saw Ghost, Wraith and Dawn finished in Bespoke pastel colours.

Such was the demand for these cars, the colour palette was embraced and developed, inspiring a new and dynamic colour palette for Black Badge.
