Rolls-Royce Black Badge Models Revealed Ahead Of Geneva Motor Show

Written By:

Rolls-Royce will offer bespoke variants of the Ghost and Wraith models, called the 'Black Badge' models, which will be displayed for the first time during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The new Black Badge models are to attract younger buyers and the company describes them as being Truly Bespoke.

The Rolls-Royce Black Badge models will have cosmetic as well as mechanical changes made to the car. The first change one would notice is the famous Spirit of Ecstasy logo, which is finished in gloss black. Other changes include several exterior trims finished in black, including the logo and the car itself.

Rolls-Royce claim that they have taken the colours to new levels of intensity, by using multiple layers of paint and by hand polishing the trims. Also, both models of the Rolls-Royce Black Badge models have automatic LED headlights.

Inside, both models of the Black Badge models have carbon-fibre composite trims, darkened air vents, and bespoke centre-piece clock.

The engine has been retained, the same 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V12, but has been tweaked to deliver 595bhp and 840Nm of torque, which is 39bhp and 60Nm torque more than the stock car. The car's 8-speed gearbox has been set up to be more sporty and so have the steering and suspension. The front brakes have also been upgraded.
