Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced a limited run of Dawn, Wraith and Cullinan Black Badge models sporting a vibrant colour palette.

Dubbed ‘Neon Nights’, the new variants feature hues that are apparently inspired by exotic plants and animals.

 “Neon Nights is a vibrant trilogy of Rolls-Royce Black Badges, whose inspiration come from nature,” says Sami Coultas, Bespoke Designer Colour & Trim, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “Taking cues from the natural world, including an Australian green tree frog, a Hawaiian tree flower and an exotic butterfly, these limited hues show Black Badge bolder in colour, appealing to patrons around the world who really do dare to be different,” he adds.

The carmaker says any pre-conceived notion that Rolls-Royce’s Black Badge variants all have to be black is comprehensively laid to rest by the super-solid Neon Nights colours.

Created initially for clients in the United States, three further iterations of each colour are available for commission worldwide, making a limited run of just four of each colour.

Wraith Black Badge is finished in Lime Rock Green, a near-luminous hue naturally bestowed on the Australian green tree frog, which Rolls-Royce Bespoke Paint Specialist Sami Coultas first encountered on a trip to Tamworth, north of Sydney. The interior is swathed in Scivaro Grey leather, with Lime Rock Green accents in the form of stitching and piping.

The striking Eagle Rock Red created for the Dawn Black Badge mimics the flowers of ‘Ōhi‘a lehua, an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. The interior is finished in Selby Grey leather with Koi Red stitching and piping details.

For Cullinan, inspiration apparently comes from an exotic butterfly, Rhetus periander. Known as the Periander metalmark, this species is found across Central and South America; Rolls-Royce says the vibrancy of its wings is faithfully captured in Cullinan’s Mirabeau Blue finish. The Arctic White leather interior detailed in Lime Rock Green provides a dramatic contrast.
