Highlights

  • Rolls-Royce will make only 50 units of the Wraith Eagle VIII Collection.
  • The exterior is finished in a special Selby Grey dual-tone paint shade.
  • The cabin too is draped in Selby Grey leather with brass inserts.

It's always a moment when Rolls-Royce shows a new 'art-on-wheels' to the world and more so when it's a special edition. The luxury carmaker has unveiled the Wraith Eagle VIII Collection on the shores of Lake Como at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este and says that the car will tell the tale of one of the most pivotal moments of the 20th Century. Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur Brown flew the first non-stop transatlantic flight in June, 1919. Contemporaries of Sir Henry Royce, Alcock and Brown flew non-stop from St. John's, Newfoundland to Clifden, Ireland in a modified First World War Vickers Vimy bomber aircraft which was powered by a 350 bhp, 20.3-litre Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII engines.

The inside of the Wraith Eagle VIII collection will give you a different feel altogether. Don't mistake it for any change in the design as the layout of the cabin remains untouched, however, the difference is in the treatment. It is draped in selby grey and black leather with brass inserts to mirror the outside hue. The speaker covers too are finished in brass which further extends to the door panniers. The driver side door includes a brass plaque with Sir Winston Churchill's quote commending the achievement of the duo pilots who flew across the vast stretch of the Atlantic. The clock has an iced background effect which glows a faint green light in the night while driving.
