This Rolls-Royce Wraith Has a Mural On Its Hood, Because Why Not?

Rolls-Royce is no stranger to celestial design themes. Its starlight headliner gives passengers a view of the night sky without ever having to open the windows. This time around, the automaker is taking things a step further with a bespoke Wraith that features a special headliner depicting the entire solar system from inside the cabin.

Commissioned through Rolls-Royce Abu Dhabi, this Wraith’s exterior features a satellite view of the Arabian Peninsula from space. The intricate artwork on the hood took more than 100 to complete by hand, according to Rolls. On the side of the vehicle near the door handles, there are icons representing the eight planets of the Solar System: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Sorry again, Pluto.

Along with the solar system headliner, the interior gets inlays showing the planets in silver and Earth in gold. In the rear compartment separating the two seats, Rolls-Royce used Photoflash technology to show a scene of atmospheric clouds in the embroidery. Special solar system-themed treadplates complete the look.

There are also plenty of Middle East touches inside the cabin, including another depiction of the Arabian Peninsula on the center console. Rolls-Royce says the Moccasin leather seats represent the sands of the Emirates’ deserts. Meanwhile, special blue and green accents symbolize rivers and other forms of nature.

Rolls-Royce isn’t saying how much this particular model costs. But if it’s anything like the special edition Wraith Kryptos Collection, it could exceed $400,000.
