Rolls-Royce is Bringing An Army of Special Edition Models to Monterey Car Week
Four different versions of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan will lead the packby Kirby Garlitos, on
Rolls-Royce is bringing four different versions of the Cullinan to Monterey Car Week as part of the luxury SUV’s public debut in the U.S. All four versions of the Cullinan will sport different paint jobs. They’ll also be joined by a handful of special edition Rolls-Royce models, including the Umbra Black Badge, the Paradiso, and Nebula Collections. All three collections feature Dawn, Ghost, and Wraith models, though the Dawn will be showcased as an exclusive model, called the Dawn Black Badge Adamas Collection. The luxury automaker will also bring a one-off Phantom that’s earmarked for Rolls-Royce enthusiast Michael Fux.
Rolls-Royce hasn’t said if any of the four “special” Cullinans will go on sale, but don’t be surprised if they do end up for grabs.
Rolls-Royce does car debuts unlike any automaker in the business. We’re going to see the full extent of that at Monterey Car Week with an armada of super luxury models, none more important for the occasion than the four Cullinan SUVs that are part of the SUV’s public debut in the U.S. One of the featured Cullinans is wearing an Iguazu Blue exterior paint finish with a Charles Blue interior and Scivaro Grey highlights to go with it. The three other Cullinans will have either a Magma Red or Darkest Tungsten body color. Rolls-Royce’s Viewing Suite package comes standard on all four Cullinans.
Rolls-Royce hasn’t said if any of the four “special” Cullinans will go on sale, but don’t be surprised if they do end up for grabs, whether it’s a straight-up sale or in an auction setting. Regardless of their exclusive colors, all four Cullinans carry a 6.75-liter, twin-turbo, V-12 that produces 563 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. All that power is sent to all four wheels courtesy of a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
In addition to the four Cullinans, Rolls-Royce is also rolling out the Umbra Black Badge Collection for the Dawn, Ghost, and Wraith.
In addition to the four Cullinans, Rolls-Royce is also rolling out the Umbra Black Badge Collection for the Dawn, Ghost, and Wraith. Each of the three models features a Matte Black exterior with matching dark chrome trim and a set of 21-inch carbon alloy wheels. Inside, the three models are dressed in Mugello Red and Black leather upholstery. Carbon fiber trim and “Pebble Beach 2018” treadplates are also included in the cabin package.
The Dawn, Ghost, and Wraith are also the subjects of Rolls’ Paradiso Collection. All three models of the collection will feature a Quail Blue paint finish, Mandarin Coachlines, and fancy stripes on the hood and wheel caps. Unlike the Umbra Black Badge Collection, each Rolls-Royce model included in the Paradiso Collection have unique interior designs, though aluminum-threaded carbon fiber trim will come as standard across the collection.
Overwhelmed now? If you can still keep up, Rolls-Royce will also bring the Nebula Collection to Monterey, California. Inspired by aerospace technology — hence the name — the Nebula Collection is also comprised of Dawn, Ghost, and Wraith models. All three models wear an Iced Selby Grey finish with a flat grey hue. Inside, the luxury Rolls are dressed in Selby Grey and Black leather, offset against high contrast Sunset accents that come in the form of piping and stitching.
Saving the best for last is the one-off Rolls Royce “Phantom in Fuxia,” commissioned by famous Rolls-Royce collector Michael Fux. Details of this exclusive Phantom haven’t been announced, but it does carry the distinction of being the 10th bespoke creation Rolls-Royce has built for someone who many regard as one of the foremost Rolls-Royce collectors in the world.
