The Rolls-Royce Summer Studio in Sardinia, Italy has unveiled two remarkable Bespoke motor cars, commissioned to reflect the atmosphere and vibrancy of one of the world’s most exclusive and glamorous enclaves, Porto Cervo.
The essence of the marina, which resides on the Costa Smerelda, is embodied in two Bespoke Rolls-Royces. One is a Wraith, the marque’s most powerful motor car ever created, and the other is a Dawn, the recently launched and most social of Drophead Coupés.
The ambient hues of dusk are imbued on the Bespoke Wraith. A two-tone silver exterior reflects the dimming of the day’s light, whilst a purple feature line hints at the interior mood of this unique motor car. The Spirit of Ecstasy, the figurine that has graced the bonnet of each Rolls-Royce since 1911, casts a soft illumination from her position upon the motor car’s signature grille.
On opening the coach doors of the Bespoke Wraith, the mysterious aura of twilight, so appreciated by the Costa Smerelda’s glamorous denizens, is depicted using shades of blue, purple, slate and black, bestowing the feeling of calm as night falls. The use of ostrich leather adds depth and texture to the exquisitely furnished cabin.
In stark contrast, the Bespoke Dawn has been specified to capture the vibrancy and vivid colour of the Porto Cervo seascape. A unique emerald green exterior is offset against a distinct seashell and green leather interior. Open-pore teak encapsulates the occupants, alluding to the elegant sensation of a marine sojourn. A Bespoke teak boot floor mat has been created for the luggage compartment, continuing the nautical theme.
At the heart of this unique motor car lies art within art – precious emeralds and mother of pearl are set into white gold and presented on the fascia as a timeless memory of the beguiling island. As a brooch adorns a gown, so the jewels complete the visual harmony of this exquisite motor car. With the fascia’s jewels set in the shape of the emblem of Porto Cervo, the occupants are reminded of the magical island from which the spirit of this motor car originated.
