ROLLS-ROYCE INTRODUCES THE BLACK BADGE CULLINAN BLUE SHADOW PRIVATE COLLECTION AND IT'S OUTTA THIS WORLD.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars just unveiled something quite different, but true to the brand its absolutely awesome and has been called the Black Badge Cullinan 'Blue Shadow' Private Collection that’s taken inspiration from the Kármán Line - the invisible boundary 62 miles above the Earth’s surface, where the earth ends and outer space begins. With that distance in mind, this bespoke limited edition of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan will see just 62 models created that will be available exclusively through Rolls-Royce Private Office. If you have to ask what that is, you’re not the target market. “With Black Badge Cullinan Blue Shadow, we venture to the fabled Kármán Line, where the constraints of Earth give way to the infinite freedom of outer space: a zone of incomparable beauty, mystery and boundless possibility. In creating Blue Shadow, the Bespoke Collective of designers, engineers and craftspeople captured this spirit by embarking on their own voyage of discovery, once again pushing the boundaries of craftsmanship. Blue Shadow is a testament to our relentless pursuit of perfection and a celebration of the spirit of exploration, designed for the unique individuals who expand horizons and represent the very best of human endeavour.” says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
While the exterior is s sight to behold, the bespoke cabin is the star (get it?) of the show. The Stardust Blue exterior paint is said to capture the deep blue colour of the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere and the finish of the thermal tiles used to shield space shuttles on re-entry is mimicked in the satin-tinted grille surround and aero bumper insert sets. For this car, the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy that stands proud on the bonnet was created using 3D printing techniques in titanium and is finished with a thin layer of blue-tinted lacquer adding a pearlescence to the titanium’s grained texture. The Black Badge infinity logo and ‘Blue Shadow’ Private Collection name are engraved on the Spirit of Ecstasy base and infilled with Charles Blue. Completing the exterior aesthetic, Blue Shadow’s wheels are subtly darkened using a translucent lacquer. Inside there are plenty amazing things to see and touch, but the clear highlight is the Edge of Space headliner. Rolls-Royce’s Starlight headliner was taken a step further here with the addition of an intricate Moon embroidery surrounded by an array of stars to represent the moon's surface with its multitude of craters in three dimensions. The embroidery uses five different colours of thread, each applied with a different technique to produce a distinctive texture. In total, the embroidery is created from 250 000 separate stitches – a process that takes two entire days to complete. The Starlight headliner contains 1 183 ‘stars’, 799 in white and 384 in blue, all individually added to the leather canvas through perforated holes. The bespoke SUV also comes with a bespoke car cover, luggage set and 1:8 scale model replica of Blue Shadow available to commission. As expected, all 62 planned models have already been allocated to wealthy owners…
