Rolls-Royce has revealed a bespoke version each of the Wraith and the Dawn at its Summer Studio in the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. The special cars, unveiled at the studio situated in the Promenade du Port along the Costa Smeralda, pays tribute to Sardinia’s ultra-glamorous sea-side enclave of Porto Cervo. Apparently commissioned to reflect the “atmosphere and vibrancy” of the exclusive and fashionable locality, the two bespoke Rolls-Royces follow the theme “Dusk until Dawn”.

Rolls-Royce says the ambient shades of dusk are infused into the bespoke Wraith, which sports a two-tone silver exterior contrasted by a purple feature line, while the interior is decked out in shades of blue, purple, slate and black, with the use of ostrich leather adding a special texture to the cabin.

Meanwhile, the Dawn drophead coupé, which has been specced to capture the essence of Porto Cervo’s seascape, gets an emerald green exterior finish, and a seashell and green leather interior. The trim inside is crafted from open-pore teak wood, with even the boot floor mat being made of the same variety of wood, in a nod to the overall nautical theme. Its dashboard is embellished with emeralds and mother of pearl set into white gold in the shape of the emblem of Porto Cervo.

“Patrons of our marque delight in inhabiting some of the world’s most beautiful enclaves. Sardinia, and its stunning Costa Smerelda, serves as the perfect backdrop for Rolls-Royce to host these patrons of true luxury in an intimate setting; The Rolls-Royce Summer Studio. The stunning Bespoke Wraith and emerald embellished Dawn, inspired by the sights and colours of Porto Cervo, have been commissioned in the spirit that so many of our customers delight in,” says Isobel Dando, general manager, Future Retail, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

The Summer Studio, which will remain open until September 2016, also has on display tattooed works of art created London-based tattoo artist Mo Coppoletta, also inspired by the colours and atmosphere of Porto Cervo.
