After unveiling a limited edition Wraith Luminary collection, Rolls-Royce now introduces a special edition Adamas Collection that consists of just 40 Black Badge Wraiths and 30 Black Badge Dawns. The collection’s name, a Greek word which means ‘untameable’, ‘invincible’ and also ‘diamond’, was picked up to describe the darker side of contemporary craftsmanship.
Taking the black treatment to a whole new level, the Adamas Collection is distinguishable by a two-tone exterior finish, either in black-red (Aphrodite Red) or a black-blue (Morpheus Blue) color combinations. One of the features you’ll only find on these cars is the carbon fiber Spirit of Ecstasy emblem on top of the Pantheon grille up front.
The figure is engineered from 294 layers of aerospace grade carbon fiber, which takes 68 hours to produce with a technical weave angle of precisely 25 degrees. It sits on a specially created titanium base, vapor-blasted to adopt a darkened aesthetic, bearing the words ‘”BLACK BADGE ADAMAS,” and the infinity logo.
The Mandarin Orange interior for the Dawn and Cobalto Blue interior for the Wraith from the original cars have spread to the exterior of Adamas. Both vehicles come with the option of darkened versions of either Aphrodite Red over Black or Morpheus Blue over Black. These are also Rolls-Royce’s first ever two-tone Black Badge cars.
The highlight of the interior is the clock, encrusted with black diamonds. Harnessing the carbon structure in its most explicit form, 88 laboratory-grown diamonds form the Black Badge infinity symbol, providing a jewellery-like reminder of the restless spirits of the inhabitants of these motor cars.
The starlight headliner of Wraith Adamas features 1,340 individual fibre optic lights that are configured as though forming the molecular structure of carbon as it becomes a diamond, forming a motif reminiscent of a powerful spine running through the interior cabin.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce, commented, “Adamas is a Collection that fuses the extraordinary competence of our Bespoke craftspeople from the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, with the rebellious spirit of Black Badge. The result is a motor car for those who seek more than the definitive of engineered luxury conveyance. This is a motor car for the risk-taker who is not afraid to embrace a bold and progressive statement of true and modern luxury, in its darkest form.”
