Rolls Royce Murders Out Wraith And Ghost With New Black Badge Editions

Rolls Royce’s new Black Badge editions are the bad boys of the Ghost sedan and Wraith coupe families bringing a sinister exterior look and surprisingly, an extra dollop of power into the mix.

Both models get a deep black exterior finish together with unique composite carbon fiber alloys featuring aluminum hubs, plus black detailing that includes a high-gloss Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament.

For the Black Badge Edition’ interiors, the British company used aerospace-grade aluminum-threaded carbon-fiber composite trims, along with darker details, a new clock design, black ‘starlight’ headliner with more than a thousand fiber-optic nodes, and two-tone embroidered leather upholstery.

Rolls Royce engineers made some improvements to the Wraith and Ghost’s 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engines, with the former retaining the same output at 624hp (632PS) but gaining an additional 70Nm (52 lb-ft) of torque for a total of 870Nm (642 lb-ft), and the latter, a 40hp and 60Nm (44 lb-ft) bump in output.

A recalibrated air suspension setup, bigger front brakes and a faster eight-speed automatic transmission round out the performance upgrades for the two models that will make their first public out at the Geneva Motor Show.
