Rolls-Royce has come up with the new Adamas collection for those who want to own a Rolls-Royce but would like an edgier element. The word “Adamas” means “untameable” and the Black Badge Adamas Collection is a limited edition collection of extra-dark Wraiths and Dawns which sport a Spirit of Ecstasy made of machined carbon fiber. The hood ornament is made of 294 layers of carbon fiber and requires 68 hours of production time. It has a base that is made of dark hued titanium. The titanium base has been vapor blasted for a darker tone.
Another characteristic feature of this collection its two-tone exterior paint job, which is based on the colors used in the interiors of standard Black Badge models. They could be either black and red or black and blue. The grille too is darker in color. The Black Badge Infinity symbol is encrusted with black diamonds created in the laboratory. The entire collection showcases different ways in which technical fibers and molecular compounds can be manipulated to make a vehicle more stylish.
Commenting on the collection, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce, commented, that the Adamas Collection fused the outstanding competence of Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke craftspeople from the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, with the rebellious spirit of Black Badge. The outcome is a vehicle that represents the pinnacle of engineered luxury conveyance. This vehicle is positioned as a motor car for the risk-taker who wants to make a bold and progressive statement of true and modern luxury, with a dark edge.
The interiors match the exteriors when it comes to quality and finish. Each vehicle in the Adamas Collection comes with a unique clock having 88 lab-produced black diamonds which form an infinity symbol on a black carbon-fiber plate. The clock has a white face against which the diamonds stand out. The lights in Rolls-Royce’s fiber-optic laden headliner replicate the molecular structure of a diamond and will be built to match the exterior color the buyer opts for.
The black diamond theme is repeated in the starlight headliner of the Wraith Adamas, with 1,340 individual fiber optic lights being used to form the molecular structure of carbon as it looks in a diamond. This is available in either of the hues used for the collection to match with the color scheme and for the first time, the starlight headliner incorporates graded shading, comprising different tones of the chosen color palette.
Other special touches in the interiors include a two-tone steering wheel and rich woven black leather on the door cards and transmission tunnel.
As a final touch, when one enters or alights from the atmospheric cabin of Adamas, one encounters an illuminated tread plate, reading either ‘Black Badge Wraith Adamas – One of Forty’ or ‘Black Badge Dawn Adamas – One of Thirty’, reminding the occupant of the power and precious nature of this Collection.
The Adamas Collection comprises just 40 Wraiths and 30 Dawns. So, those who wish to own a car from this collection should definitely hurry to place their orders.
