Rolls-Royce previews Wraith 'Inspired by Film' edition

The package celebrates the Rolls-Royce Wraith launch film, \"And the World Stood Still.\"

Rolls-Royce has previewed a new special-edition Wraith, known as the 'Inspired by Film' edition.

As the name implies, the package celebrates the company's Wraith launch film, "And the World Stood Still," which has been accepted into the British Film Institute National Archive.

"We selected ['And the World Stood Still'] for preservation as it is an outstanding and award-winning example of modern corporate promotional filmmaking," said BFI's senior curator for non-fiction films, Patrick Russell. "It's a powerful use of the film medium for product launch purposes, executed with impeccable craftsmanship."

The special-edition Wraith takes inspiration from the film, with a two-tone silver and Jubilee Silver exterior color theme and a solid-silver hand-cast Spirit of Ecstasy adorning the hood.

The interior has been outfitted with Anthracite leather contrasting against Casden Tan accents. The silver scheme is maintained by an aluminum band that flows across the open-pore Macassar Ebony paneling.

No changes have been made under the hood, where a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 produces 624 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque.

The special-edition Wraith will make its debut this week at the New York auto show.
