One-off Rolls-Royces designed by Rock Royalty
Rock and Rolls-Royce? The luxury brand have teamed up with British icons to create one-off vehicles that celebrate “the illustrious career of a British pop and rock legend”.
We couldn’t mention rock legends without mentioning at least one Rolling Stone. And Rolls-Royce agreed with us as they collaborated with Ronnie Wood for his very own Wraith. Admittedly, the vehicle references Wood’s solo career and the car features embroidered cover art designed by Ronnie Wood himself, and lyrics engraved in the door panels.[vc_single_image image=”52201″ img_size=”article-image”]There is also a Pink Floyd edition with Nick Mason being personally involved in the design as well as a Francis Rossi/Status Quo edition. There will also be one in celebration of George Martin, most commonly referred to as the fifth Beatle. Unfortunately, George has passed away and so his Wraith contains the titles of the 30 number one hit singles he produced in the UK. You read that right, he produced 30 number one singles. Each hit is embroidered in the divide between the two rear seats, most likely because that’s the only place where there would be enough room.Of course it’s not all classic rock as Rolls-Royce have also teamed up with Shirley Bassey for her very own Wraith.
Each artist worked with Rolls-Royce bespoke designer Matthew Danton and design chief Giles Taylor. The idea itself was initiated by English artist Alistair Morrison. Morrison told Forbes “This effort brings together the crème of the British music scene in one truly iconic image.” These limited edition vehicles will be sold off later this year, with all profits going to a charity of each legends choice.
