This is the new Rolls-Royce Black Badge Wraith Black Arrow, the last V12 coupe Rolls will ever build.

As the brand shifts to full electric driving, many of its iconic models will be discontinued.

So this may be the first of many to come.

Since this is the last V12 coupe, and the last Wraith model, Rolls-Royce really did throw everything but the kitchen sink at it.

First, you’ve got this amazing chameleon paint.

It’s dark grey at the front and it then transitions to deep black at the back.

If you look closely, the black paint will also reveal an intricate pattern of sparking dots to resemble a star-studded sky at night.

The wheels are painted in a matching combo of black and titanium grey.

To offset the dark tones, Rolls-Royce applied yellow accents to the air vents, hub caps and even the Spirt of Ecstasy figurine on the hood.

Compared to the exterior, the interior is a bit more show-offy.

But we mean that in a good way.

The front seats are upholstered in yellow leather whereas the rear seats are covered in black leather.

That’s not all because for the door panels, Rolls-Royce used a new type of grain leather developed specifically for this car.

The dashboard clock is a tribute to the first V12 Rolls to break a speed record on land nearly 100 years ago.

And then, cherry on top of the cake, the passenger side dashboard features a V12 silhouette.

Rolls-Royce Black Badge Wraith – Performance, pricing, availabity

The Black Badge Black Arrow is powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12, putting out 632 horsepower and 642 lb-ft of torque.

Despite the massive weight (2,435 kg), it does 0-60 mph (100 km/h) in just over four seconds.

Production is limited to 12 units only, and Rolls Royce says all 12 are spoken for.

The price is only available upon request but the ‘standard’ Black Badge starts at around $380,000, so this one is propably closer to half a million dollars.
