The ‘performance’ variants of the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Wraith have finally been launched in India. Named Black Badge, the enthusiast friendly variants of the Ghost and Wraith are priced at Rs 4.93 crore and Rs 5.28 crore, respectively.
The Wraith Black Badge is the Rolls-Royce flagship performance car with a 6.6-litre, V12 engine that produces 634 horses and 870Nm. The 2440kg luxury coupe can hit 100kmph in just 4.3 seconds. The top speed is limited at 250kmph. The same engine powers the Ghost Black Badge but is slightly detuned and churns out 603bhp and 840Nm. However, it is no slouch either and is slower to 100kmph by just 0.3 seconds.
On the outside, both the cars get several black elements including Xirallic black paint giving them a mirror like finish. Even the Spirit of Ecstasy is finished in black, instead of the usual chrome. The 21-inch wheels get carbonfibre elements. The headlights get smoked effect as well, to go with the black theme. On the inside, the story continues as leather is replaced with carbon fibre inserts. The infinity emblem also extends to the rear seat having seen only in the clock dial till date. The headlining is comprised of 1340 fibre optic lights, giving the roof the look of a starlit sky.
