2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Dawn and Wraith Black Badge gain Neon Nights special editions

Black Badge trio marked up in highlighter-like, nature-inspired, ultra-exclusive hues.

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Dawn and Wraith Black Badge ‘Neon Nights’ special editions have been unveiled, adding a splash of colour to the British brand’s dark-themed performance models.

Rolls-Royce says just four of each Neon Nights-hued Black Badge model will be offered, each featuring a different exterior and interior colour scheme inspired by “the natural world”.

Adorning the Wraith Black Badge is Lime Rock Green, a highlighter-like green inspired not by the American racetrack of the same name, but by the Australian green tree frog, encountered by Rolls-Royce ‘paint specialists’ on a trip to the town of Tamworth, 400km north of Sydney.

The Wraith’s cabin is trimmed in Scivaro Grey leather, with Lime Rock Green accents and contrast stitching to match the exterior.

The Dawn Black Badge is finished is Eagle Rock Red, inspired by the flowers of Ōhi‘a lehua, a native tree to Hawaii. It’s complemented by a Selby Grey leather interior, with Koi Red contrast stitching and piping.

Meanwhile, the Cullinan Black Badge scores a Mirabeau Blue colour for its exterior, inspired by the “vibrancy” of the wings of exotic Rhetus periander butterfly found in Central and South America. Inside, the Cullinan features an Arctic White hue for the leather interior, with Lime Rock Green contrast elements.

All three Neon Nights models also feature a unique lined design for their ‘Technical Fibre’ dashboard trim inlays.

The announcement of the Neon Nights editions follows the success of the pastel-hued Black Badge models showcased at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, which were met with high demand and put into production.

Of the four Neon Nights examples of each Black Badge model – making 12 in total – one will be reserved for US customers, with the remaining three available for global consumption.

“Taking cues from the natural world, including an Australian green tree frog, a Hawaiian tree flower and an exotic butterfly, these limited hues show Black Badge bolder in colour, appealing to patrons around the world who really do dare to be different”, said Sami Coultas, bespoke colour and trim designer at Rolls-Royce.

No changes have been made to the Black Badge models’ powertrains, meaning a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 in the Wraith and Dawn two-doors developing 465kW/870Nm and 442kW/840Nm respectively, and a 441kW/900Nm 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 in the high-riding Cullinan.
