Mansory Design & Holding GmbH is taking luxury to the peak of perfection and redefining the boundaries for opulent automobiles. As a nod to the splendour of 999 pure gold, Mansory is giving its magnificent Rolls-Royce Wraith upgrade the name ‘Palm Edition 999’.
The number 9 can also be found in the maximum number of Wraiths available worldwide – by limiting the series to just nine custom- made unique pieces, the Palm Edition 999 gains even further exclusivity. With a keen sense of aesthetics and abundant experience in the processing of Rolls-Royce automobiles, the specialists at Mansory have created a true piece of art for the road.
The two-tone paintwork alone brings the two-door Rolls coupé to a new level with its skirt available in a distinguished white and golden colour scheme. Even the aerodynamics have been finely retuned: the bodywork package is crafted entirely from carbon, giving the Wraith stylish elegance and unrivalled individuality by the automobile manufacturer from the Bavarian town of Brand.
From the front spoiler with separately integrated LED and daytime running lights, front fender, side skirts, through to the reworked rear of the vehicle with a new apron that stretches to the rear and roof spoiler – this luxury British car has had a complete makeover. But true luxury is found in the details: In the Palm Edition 999, the original badges have been replaced with logos and plaques that have been artfully finished with 999 pure gold.
Upon request, Mansory can gold plate all parts with a metallic surface – from the door handles, to the trim and sill guards, through to the radiator grille and ‘Emily’ enthroned above.
But it is not only the aesthetics that have been refined; under the long hood the old adage also applies: ‘Better is the enemy of good’. In the series version, the Wraith already attains 632 PS (465 kW) and a maximum torque of 800 Newton metres, but the Mansory model exceeds this by a long shot: 740 PS (544 kW) are now available at 5,000 revolutions per minute.
In addition, the maximum torque that can be achieved is an irrepressible 1,000 Nm, which is available in the range from 1,500 to 5,500 rpm. This means the Palm Edition 999 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h within a mere 4.4 seconds. The maximum speed has been increased from 250 to 300 km/h.
This power is transferred onto the road by striking gold-coloured alloy wheels with a diameter of 22 inches.
These ultra-high-performance wheels are encased with Vredestein tyres with the dimensions 265/35.
In the interior as well, the design department has worked in conjunction with the Mansory upholstery team to outperform the luxury for which Rolls-Royce is famous. The masterfully crafted leather furnishings take their colour cue from the exterior paintwork and the interior features embroideries of the Palm logo in unsurpassed quality. There are also occasional refinements throughout the cockpit made from pure gold to add yet more individual accents.
