British luxury marque Rolls-Royce has prepared a special edition of the Wraith called “Porto Cervo.” The limited-run model will make its first public appearance later this summer in Italy during the 2015 Rolls-Royce Summer Studio and apparently the designers took their “inspiration from the spirit of Costa Smeralda.” As a consequence, the vehicle is wearing an attractive blue exterior paint scheme which has been combined with a white coachline and unique body graphics.
Most of the changes have been implemented inside the luxurious four-seater cabin which adopts an Arctic Blue & Navy Blue theme with slate seatbelts and Royal Walnut Open Pore wood trim. It also gets personalized headrest embroidery and Metal Onlay and Flight with RRMC text while the carpets have a Navy Blue finish.
This special edition brings only cosmetic upgrades so underneath that long and elegant hood resides the same large V12 6.6-liter twin-turbo engine which is capable of generating a generous 624 bhp and a massive peak torque of 800 Nm. Despite its sheer size and weight, the vehicle needs only 4.4 seconds to complete the 0-100 kmph sprint and can reach an electronically-limited top speed of 250 kmph.
Rolls-Royce hasn’t released any details about how much the Wraith Porto Cervo special edition costs, but we do know they plan on making only three units which have probably been pre-sold already.
For those who are not fond of the coupe, RR is working on a convertible version set to be sold with the Dawn moniker. It will go on sale at the beginning of next year and will come with an electrically retractable soft top that will obviously command a serious premium over the coupe. Expect the Rolls-Royce Dawn to have the same engine as the Wraith, but it will be a tad slower due to its slightly higher curb weight as a result of adding the complicated roof mechanism.
