Have you chosen the dark side? If not, do it now! You will then feel like home in the new Black Badge models, unveiled by the British luxury-car manufacturer, Rolls-Royce. There have been some significant changes in the models, especially the Wraith. These changes make the car radiate a spectrum that does not merely highlight the gullible power of money, but also adds an aura of power, which is very evident from the high gloss-black Spirit of Ecstasy on the hood.
The Wraith receives an entirely revamped air-suspension, a new driveshaft, an 8-speed transmission system, uprated brakes, steering and larger front brake discs. A new intuitive Throttle Response system is present, that links you with the performance directly, thus giving you an unparalleled experience. Along with the 623 BHP, an impressive torque of 840 Nm pours out of the colossal 6.6-litre V12 engine.
Meanwhile, the Ghost settles for more power, higher torque boost that sharpens the throttle response and a few changes in the steering and suspension system. An alloy-carbon composite finds itself on the 22 layers of carbon-fibre coated on the complex structured wheels. In short, the Black Badge models are more powerful, with the Ghost receiving a 603 BHP mark and the Wraith, a 623 BHP mark. And well, they’re so so beautiful, simply because – Black!
Both the chromed surfaces of the Wraith and Ghost have been painted stark black, to raise the levels of intensity according to the masterminds at Rolls-Royce. They have achieved this by using multiple layers of paint, smoothened out by hand-polishing each panel. Simply stunning! Now, the perfect partner in crime for the Black on the outside is complimented by carbon-fibre composite on the inside, darkened air vents and a piece of an analogue clock, to bring you back to reality.
Unfortunately, the Phantom does not receive a Black Badge model edition. As far as cost is concerned, it is sure to break all conventions and reach somewhere close to £250,000. We can’t think of any person, who would be stupid enough not to buy a Black Badge RR, even though he could afford one. If you’re one of those, you’re really going to regret your decision very soon!
