Rendering: A Rolls-Royce Supercar That Doesn’t Put Luxury First

Rolls-Royce is all about luxury, but what if they went the other direction and built a supercar?

LISTEN 02:54

If there’s one adjective that perfectly describes Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, that would be luxury. After all, when the company was founded in 1906, its goal was to create the best cars in the world. However, what the company considers best are cars that isolate you from the world around you. That’s basically what their lineup is all about right now, but what if they made a car that went the completely opposite direction? What if Rolls-Royce built a supercar? 

Our sister site, HotCars, managed to digitally render what it would be like if Rolls-Royce made such a vehicle. Called the Rolls-Royce Supersport, the vehicle is the digital creation of Rostislav Prokop.

Created by Rostislav Prokop from HotCars, the Rolls-Royce Supersport is a car that the brand will probably never make

The sportiest Rolls-Royce to date is the Wraith, and it also happens to be the brand’s most powerful vehicle, yet even then, the Wraith is a coupe that still puts an emphasis on comfort and isolation. 

Speaking of comfort, one of the reasons why a Rolls-Royce has "suicide" rear-hinged doors (or doors that open in the wrong direction) is that they’re easy to get in and out of in a graceful manner. Now, with a low-slung supercar, that aspect has been completely thrown out of the window.

However, since this is a Rolls-Royce supercar, the side profile features a host of vents and creases for aerodynamic purposes

As for the rest of the design, Prokop’s interpretation of a Rolls-Royce supercar is something that looks angular, yet still has the signature design details of a Rolls such as its upright vertical grille, the horizontal LED headlights, and the signature quadrilateral LED taillights that are seen on every Rolls-Royce rear end. Of course, who could forget the weighted center wheel caps so that the Rolls-Royce logo remains upright, as well as the retractable Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament? A Rolls-Royce isn’t complete without these design details.

Unfortunately, we have no clue about what the interior looks like. Of course, being a Rolls-Royce, only the highest quality of materials will be used, but don’t expect the same level of space and comfort that you get in a Wraith and its densely-padded seats.

As for what possibly powers it, the Rolls-Royce Supersport could use the Wraith Black Badge’s 6.75-liter V-12 that produces 624 hp

What you can expect, however, is plenty of performance never before seen in a Rolls-Royce. This then gives us the liberty to imagine what engines might power the Rolls-Royce Supersport. The 6.75-liter twin-turbo V-12 in its most powerful form in the Wraith Black Badge produces 624 horsepower, but if plug-in hybrid technology would be needed, then the BMW XM’s 730-horsepower twin-turbo V-8 plug-in hybrid powertrain is also a viable option. 

A Rolls-Royce Supersport will definitely never happen, but if it does, it should serve as a competitor to the Ferrari 296 GTB and Lamborghini Huracan. Through this digital recreation of a Rolls-Royce supercar, at least we have a digital glimpse of what such a vehicle could look like.
