Rolls-Royce through its Bespoke Design Studio in Goodwood has prepared yet another special model and this time it’s based on the Wraith coupe. It was designed to celebrate the history of rugby and also coincides with the ongoing world cup organized in UK. The very high-end coupe wears a lovely English White exterior body paint scheme in the same vein as the white shirts belonging to the England rugby team. As a matter of fact, these shirts date back to 1567 when these were worn when the Rugby School came to life in Warwickshire.

Besides gaining a new livery, the Wraith has been further beautified with a hand-applied coachline finished in deep green and combined with a red rose motif. It has also gained a fresh set of alloy wheels measuring 21 inches and featuring a five twin-spoke design which suits the coupe very well especially in this paint.

It wouldn’t be a special Rolls-Royce if it didn’t have any tweaks inside the cabin and this Wraith certainly has that. For example, the Seashell look is being contrasted by the Navy Blue accents and an embroidered red rose on all of the seat headrests. Moreover, there’s a Hotspur Red theme on the door piping, seats and the dashboard accent panel while a Piano Black veneer has been applied onto the dashboard and also on the center panel that is inlaid with the aforementioned English rose to create a truly special look.

RR’s Bespoke Design Studio only brings visual enhancements to the models they are working on, so this Wraith coupe has the same hardware as the regular model, with a massive twin-turbo V12 6.6-liter engine lurking underneath that elegant hood and packing a mighty punch of 632 bhp and a peak torque standing at an impressive 800 Nm.

This will remain only a one-off and it’s not known at this point whether the car is just for show or it has actually been commissioned by a wealthy RR customer very fond of rugby.
