Rolls-Royce Unveils Wraith Inspired by Music

With this new special edition Rolls-Royce is putting out there, it’s safe to assume the high-end carmakers are experiencing some creative moments. As opposed to the previous ones, however, this specifically caught our attention since we all know how important a proper sound system is with every road trip you make.

If you’re willing to put aside all the pompous public relation talk Rolls-Royce is putting out there with their recent announcement - they claim they have contributed to the myth and legend of the contemporary music scene since the birth of Rock & Roll - you’ll find this special edition Wraith quite welcoming. Sure, the luxury limousine remains a car few out there afford, as opposed to music, which, last time we checked was there for everybody to enjoy.

Let us hear what they have to say, though: “Since the launch of Wraith in 2013, customers have been able to commission their Rolls-Royce Wraith with Bespoke Audio; the most exhaustively designed sound system in automotive history.” Is it that good? Maybe, but that’s a different discussion you’ll have to detail in one of our encounters with the company’s cars, whether it’s the Wraith or the Ghost.

The Brits say that with the Wraith “Inspired by Music” these characteristics, and the precious materials used in the Bespoke Audio system, are brought very much to the fore, creating “the most exclusive music venue” that is supposed to deliver an unrivalled aural experience.

OK, maybe there’s a little too much drama here, but they do have a point. Looking for details? How about a Lyrical Copper exterior paint finish, presented with a blend of brushed and polished textures elegantly hinting at the use of copper? Once the car is opened, attention is drawn to re-imagined speaker grilles, presented in copper theme and engraved with the words “Bespoke Audio”. The door panniers and floor mats have been crafted from finely woven leather to add depth of tactility to the car’s interior cabin.

The sound system itself is truly impressive:

The extraordinary clarity of sound and dynamic range is delivered via a 1300W, 18 channel system comprising two highly powerful bass speakers, seven tweeters and seven mid-range speakers. Two ‘exciter’ speakers hand-fitted in the car’s headlining play a vital role in bringing the sound to the listener at ear-level; ensuring the output perfectly imitates the way music is experienced in a live setting. Microphones continuously monitor ambient and exterior noises and will adjust volume and tone settings automatically to ensure no external agent detracts from the user’s listening pleasure.
