Celebrating their long heritage in film, namely the ‘And the World Stood Still’ which got into the BFI (British Film Institute) National Archive, Rolls-Royce announced the launch of a new special edition based on the Wraith, called ‘Inspired by Film’. It pays homage to film noir through a number of unique “Bespoke” touches.

Among these bespoke touches that make Rolls-Royce Wraith Inspired by Film a special proposition, we can mention the two-tone Silver and Jubilee Silver paint scheme and a solid-silver hand-cast Spirit of Ecstasy. Going with the whole film theme, RR says the car itself is the hero here, while that silver Flying Lady plays the femme fatale character. The main highlights of the interior include Anthracite leather accented with Casden Tan and Maccassar Ebony panels garnished with aluminum.

Rolls-Royce Wraith Inspired by Film is certainly powerful enough to play the hero, what with a 624 bhp twin-turbo V12 engine under the bonnet. The fact that this engine is made by BMW doesn’t take away from its glamour. The Wraith is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, partly thanks to the engine, and partly to its James Bond-style Satellite-Guided Transmission.

Some of the biggest cinematic hits Rolls-Royce has had a prominent role in include Goldfinger (1964), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), The Thomas Crowne Affair (1968) and The Great Gatsby (1974). These days, however, Rollers are mostly featured in rap videos, which probably doesn’t sit well with the company’s top brass!
