Luminary has two definitions. It can either mean a person who influences and inspires others, or it can refer to a sun. Heritage carmaker Rolls-Royce have just given it a third meaning: the height of luxury.
Feast your eyes on the new Rolls-Royce Wraith Luminary – a bold expression of dynamic luxury. In response to an ongoing global demand for Rolls-Royce Collection Cars, the marque has created a Limited Collection of just 55 of these spectacular Wraiths.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, commented, “Wraith Luminary is a stunning Collection Car. It speaks directly of our contemporary Rolls-Royce brand – progressive and trailblazing; the pinnacle in hand-crafted luxury.
“This is a motor car that celebrates visionaries who achieve eminence in their respective fields. Indeed, this collection is for the world’s luminaries.”
The new Sunburst Grey colour enlivens when awoken by the sun, glowing with rich copper tones, and emitting a deep emotive warmth. A hand-painted Sunburst Motif on the front wing is also a sly nod to the motor car’s namesake.
The defining feature of the interior, Tudor Oak wood, sourced from the forests of the Czech Republic, was selected for its depth of colour and the density of the grain structure and is, for the first time, illuminated – 176 LEDs permeating through an intricately perforated design.
The prized Rolls-Royce starlight headliner, a handwoven configuration of 1340 fibre optic lights which act as a glittering night sky, also takes a bold new step as it incorporates shooting stars into the constellation; a playful display of light we enjoy.
The Luminary’s cockpit is trimmed in Saddlery Tan, though the rear seats contrast in Anthracite leather, thus highlighting the prominence of the driver’s position – and contrast piping and stitching masterfully marry the front aesthetic to the rear.
