Katrin Lehmann, Rolls-Royce Bespoke Designer, has always been fascinated by cryptography and that’s why this very subject for the inspiration for the new Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos Collection that’s limited to just 50 examples.
“The name Kryptos is derived from Ancient Greek, referring to something unseen, hidden and coded, mythical even,” said Lehman in a press release from Rolls-Royce. “Ciphers can be traced through millennia, capturing the imagination of some of the world’s most brilliant minds.”
The Wraiths within this collection have a stunning Delphic Grey exterior paint. This bespoke paint has a base color of Anthracite with blue and green mica flakes. These green flakes match the hand-painted Kryptos Green double coachline. Inside, the Kryptos Green color is used as a contrast against the grey tones. Altogether, the appearance of this collection is exactly what you’d expect in a sci-fi film.
Rolls-Royce has also included a secret code across the cars in the Wraith Kryptos Collection. Regarding this code, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commented: “On closer examination, a series of messages are hidden behind a unique Rolls-Royce cipher. I look forward to seeing whether any of our clients will crack the code!”
