Rolls Royce Wraith named George

Rolls Royce Wraith named GeorgeIt’s the latest in a line-up of cars built for Swedish professional skier Jon Olsson, who has proved to be something of a modified car addict.

It was a Rolls Royce Wraith when it was born, though we’re not sure you could still call it that. It’s had an extra few kW pumped through it to bring its output up from 465kW to 570kW.

Now, affluent buyers can get ready to welcome the gorgeous drop-top Dawn Black Badge. It made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed over the weekend, showcasing a deeply intense shade of black paint for the bodywork. Multiple layers of paint and lacquer are applied to bring out the deepest finish, Rolls says, with lots of hand polish labour going in to ensure the ultimate gloss.

It’s not uncommon to modify and customize standard-run Rolls-Royce cars – in fact, every Rolls that leaves the factory is customized to some extent – but it is rare to see a Rolls modified with such reckless abandon of the brand’s top-tier English coach-building tradition.

Some will say it’s sacrilegious to throw a roof rack on a Rolls, while others will applaud the fact this pro skier intends to daily-drive his Wraith, and will view the modifications as practical and forward-thinking.
