Black Badge is for the fearless. The rule-breakers and the risk-takers. The boldest expression for those who dare to be different.
A statement of intent for those who refuse to conform. Black has the power to transform. Liberating the rebel within and seducing you to live life on the edge. When you step into the darkness, attitudes shift as a bolder, braver side is revealed. More than a colour, black is a state of mind. For you, the night is only the beginning and the city is a playground of opportunity. While others crave routine, you revel in the undiscovered. Living on your terms and never settling for yesterday. The afterglow of streetlights. The reflection of black on black. The dark glint of possibility. To embrace the dark is to have your own unlit future in your hands. To own the night is to inhabit black itself. Step into darkness. Be transformed by the world around you.
Become bolder in black.
Key interior design features
Wraith, Ghost and Dawn are designed with the Infinity power symbol, which appears on the clock and rear seat centre, to act as a reminder of the infinite possibilities that are achievable with Rolls-Royce Black Badge.
Inside, Rolls-Royce has created a new noir form of carbon-fibre finish for the veneered surfaces, which is woven with ultra-thin 0.014mm threads of aircraft-grade aluminium. Polished metal controls such as the air vents are finished in black using a highly enduring technique known as physical vapour deposition.
There is a unique two-tone leather application throughout the interior in Black Badge; Dawn has hints of orange that encircled the cabin at hip-height. Within Wraith the interior hero colour is Cobalto Blue and for Ghost Tailored Purple . However, customers are not limited to these colours and can choose any accent colour they wish.
Key technical changes
Senses are heightened as the standard Wraith, Ghost and Dawn models are transformed, with significant enhancements that are noticeable in the feel of the ride. Whenever possible, prospects should be encouraged to drive the cars and take note of this refined experience. Engine and Gearbox The uprated 6.6 litre V12 engine is married to a brand new gearbox, delivering more torque and lower ratios to enhance straight line performance. As speeds increase, the Black Badge powertrain reacts intuitively to driver input. Response is sharpened; power and torque delivery is more direct and gears are held for longer, allowing the engine to rev more readily, delivering a Rolls-Royce driving experience like no other. Additional changes lie hidden behind the ‘low’ button which further heighten this response, adding increased urgency to every gear shift and more flexibility in response to the will of the driver, completing the Black Badge transformation.
These enhancements translate for each car as follows:
Delivering a phenomenal 624bhp (465kw), Wraith is already the most powerful Rolls-Royce in the world. But with the added edge of Black Badge, engineering has been enhanced even further. Torque is increased to 870Nm, handling is more dynamic and contact with the road intensified for a thrilling driving experience.
Ghost Black Badge is a motor car born to be driven. Its 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 engine has been enhanced to deliver more torque (840Nm) and a thrilling 603hp (450kw), making this the fastest Ghost yet. Increased power and quicker driver reactions let you surge effortlessly through the night giving Ghost's luxurious ride an added edge.
Black Badge Dawn has been developed with 593bhp, some 30bhp more than that of the standard Dawn. There’s also an extra 20Nm of torque, bringing the peak torque figure up to 840Nm. Dawn Black Badge has an entirely new exhaust system with the intriguing addition of a ‘low’ button, which when pressed amplifies the menacing bass of the Rolls-Royce V12. Mere supercars bark, howl or yap; a Rolls-Royce Black Badge growls.
Please note all technical figures are subject to confirmation. Chassis and Suspension Whilst remaining every inch a Rolls-Royce in ride quality and comfort, Black Badge takes on a different character as the pace increases. Tighter, more direct, more communicative, responding more readily to driver input and to cornering and braking forces, Black Badge delivers a more composed, involving drive through enhanced body control and an increased feeling of contact with the road.
