new york 2015 rolls royce wraith 8216 inspired by film edition revealed

Bringing the first press day of the 2015 New York Auto Show to a close in cinematic fashion comes the Rolls-Royce Wraith ‘Inspired By Film’ edition.

Honoring the automaker’s cinematic history in films like “Goldfinger,” “The Thomas Crowne Affair” and “The Great Gatsby,” the Wraith was built for a short film to coincide with the original model’s launch, “And the World Stood Still,” which was recently accepted by the British Film Institute National Archives according to AutoGuide.

Under the hood is a 624-horsepower twin-turbo V12, while the inside is adorned in Anthraite leather with Casden Tan accents and Maccassar Ebony open pore paneling, all draped in two-tone silver and jubilee silver paint, and topped with a solid silver “Spirit of Ecstasy” hood ornament.

    The name is very corny, though the interior is beautiful (minus the constellation headliner - this isn't a Town Car limo). But when it comes down to it, I don't want my RR inspired by film. I want it inspired by Britishness, and money.

    I want "The Grapes of Wraith" edition.

      The Grapes of Wraith edition will be all around in the dark. It’ll be eveywhere — wherever you look. Wherever there is a fight so hungry people can eat, It’ll be there. Wherever there is a cop beatin’ up a guy, It’ll be there. It’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know supper’s ready. And when our folks eat the stuff they raise and live in the houses they build — why, It’ll be there Or, it will just be haunted by the ghost of Tom Joad.

  • MaintenanceCosts I own a 2019 Bolt Premier that's identical to this one except for the mods and I still wouldn't buy this one. Wheels are ugly, tint is illegally dark in my state, and a badge conversion to Opel, which GM doesn't even own anymore, is just plain dumb.
  • Verbal It is more about profit margins than market demand. Ford could easily sell a substantial number of this car in North America, but the profit margins would be thin. Ford makes money hand over fist on F-series, Broncos, etc. No need to venture out of the pickup/SUV/CUV box. The suburbs of America are filled with driveway queen F-150 air haulers that are the new Country Squires. Ford likes it that way.
  • JMII What I don't get about this video is how did the tire get under the Soul? Its not like those things have massive ground clearance. I assume a tire would have smacked into the bumper and went flying in some other direction. This interaction seems to break the laws of physics... the car should have won this encounter not the tire 😱
  • SCE to AUX Looks like a good buy, but I'm not into alterations.
  • Ajla I'm smart enough to see the popularity of CUVs.What I'm not smart enough to understand is how selling 20000 sedans in small markets is superior to selling 20000 sedans in a larger market.
