Rolls-Royce prepared collection carsMay 27, 2019
The model was named Rolls-Royce Wraith Eagle VIII. It was released in honor of the first transatlantic flight. It took place on June 14-15, 1919. The flight was made by British pilots John Alcock and Arthur Brown. For these purposes, they used a modified Vickers Vimy bomber with Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII engines.

Rolls-Royce Wraith Eagle VIII will feature a two-color trim scheme combining the colors of Gunmetal and Selby Gray. The grille will be complemented by black accents, which should remind you of the Vickers Vimy aircraft. The interior trim is made of black leather with brass accents and accents in Selby Gray. On the covers of the speakers indicated the approximate distance that the plane flew – 1880 miles. The letters “RR” are embroidered on the headrests. The accents are made of tinted eucalyptus wood, which is plated with gold and inlaid with silver and copper. The end result is reminiscent of “what can be seen on the night shots of the Earth taken from the air.” The ceiling includes 1183 optical fibers that mimic the starry sky with the arrangement of stars as it was in 1919.
“Wraith Eagle VIII is both an object of desire, a tribute to heroes and a hero for today’s dreamers,” said Rolls-Royce head Torsten Muller-Otvos. He also added: “This collection Rolls-Royce series demonstrates the exceptional skills of our team at the Rolls-Royce house.”
