Bright colours can look great on the big coupe

Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke customization division keeps very busy making special versions of the brand’s opulent models. The team’s latest work gives a sunnier disposition to the mean-sounding Wraith. The coupe now wears a Golden Yellow body with a wide stripe that has a pewter finish.

The crew at Bespoke makes the vibrant body colour pop out more by keeping the trimmed subdued. The coupe rides on gloss black wheels with polished metal spokes. The door pulls and window trim use the same lined shined finish. The mix makes the yellow seem even brighter.

The company brings the same colour motif inside. Portions of the seats and dashboard get the Golden Yellow colour. The seat’s leather upholstery and gloss black interior trim give extra contrast to the brighter shade. There are also a few brushed metal elements, like around the HVAC vents. Rolls' fibre-optic roof lighting always lets occupants enjoy a starry night.

Bespoke leaves the Wraith's powertrain alone, but if the future owner wants more grunt from the biturbo 6.6-litre V12, there are plenty of tuners willing to help. The company SPOFEC can even push the output to 717 horsepower and 728 pound-feet of torque, which is apparently enough to get the coupe to 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour) from a standstill in 4.2 seconds – 0.2 seconds quicker than stock. The top speed remains at 250 km/h (155 mph), though. The firm even offers other performance goodies like a retuned suspension, and its set of carbon-ceramic brakes shed 38 kilograms (84 pounds) off the big vehicle.

If you think this coupe is too ostentatious, you can be sure that things could be much worse. For example, Rolls made a custom Wraith in mint green in 2014 that looked like the company dipped the car in toothpaste. The tuner Office-K made one of the ugliest versions, though, when it plastered the coupe in gold in 2015.
