Rolls-Royce has come to this year’s Geneva Motor Show with a couple of hot new special edition models. I know what you’re thinking: don’t they release a special edition model every other day? They do, but these Rolls-Royce Black Badge models are a little bit more special than usual.

Covering Ghost and Wraith models, Rolls-Royce Black Badge editions share a number of, unsurprisingly, black styling elements that give them an aggressive and sporty look. The reason for this is because Roller wants to attract the young money and shake off this image that they build cars only for rich old geezers.

The Black Badge treatment has a self-explanatory name and include blacked-out exterior badges, darkened trim pieces in place of the usual shiny chrome, and new carbon composite wheels with 22 layers of carbon fiber laid in three axes. But perhaps the biggest highlight of these model is a gloss black Flying Lady, or Spirit of Ecstasy, employed to our knowledge for the first time.

In addition to the visual mods, Rolls-Royce Black Badge Editions also get a power boost. The Ghost is treated to 40 extra horsepower and 60 Nm of torque while the Wraith only get 70 additional Newton meters of torque. The 8-speed transmission in both cars is also uprated for better response and acceleration.
