Rolls-Royce has announced the Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge Landspeed Collection will be making a global public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Recently announced, the Landspeed Collection celebrates achievement, innovation and courage, commemorating the tremendous records set by British engineer, Captain George Eyston, in Thunderbolt, which was powered by two Rolls-Royce R V12 aero engines.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge Landspeed Collection will take to the hillclimb up to four times a day in the exclusive ‘First Glance’ showcase. Further demonstrating Black Badge’s agility, a Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge will join the cars in the ‘Michelin Supercar Run’. Both motor cars can be viewed in the Supercar Paddock between their scheduled high-speed outings.
Displayed on the Festival’s Laundry Green, adjacent to Goodwood House, will be a selection of Bespoke commissions – comprising Phantom, Ghost, Dawn, Wraith and Cullinan – each an expression of an owner’s aesthetic sensibilities and of the marque’s peerless craftsmanship.
Additional Rolls-Royce motor cars attending the Festival of Speed include a Black Badge Cullinan as a Festival Course Safety Car and a Ghost as a Courtesy Car.
