RR to strike a chord with all those big spenders

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE -

HEY BIG Spen­der, here’s the per­fect car for you. It’s a Roll­sRoyce in­spired by Dame Shirley Bassey.

Rolls-Royce has col­lab­o­rated with Bri­tish rock and vo­cal leg­ends to cre­ate ul­ti­mate one-of-a-kind col­lec­tors’ cars. Nine mod­els of Wraith ‘In­spired by Bri­tish Mu­sic’ cars com­mis­sioned in part­ner­ship with renowned Bri­tish artists in­clud­ing Dame Shirley,

Roger Dal­trey, Sir Ray Davies and Ron­nie Wood have been pro­duced.

A pro­por­tion of each car’s value will be do­nated to char­i­ties se­lected by each mu­si­cian, in­clud­ing The Teenage Can­cer Trust.

The first four of these be­spoke cars have been un­veiled at the San­der­son Ho­tel in Fitzrovia, Lon­don.

Each car is crafted with unique de­sign touches that il­lus­trate and cel­e­brate the il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer of a Bri­tish rock and pop leg­end.

Fea­tures in­clude a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the cover art of The Who’s al­bum adorn­ing a bon­net, Sir Ge­orge Martin’s num­ber one records em­broi­dered into the Wraith’s cabin decor and door-pil­lars en­graved with hand-writ­ten lyrics and quotes.

Dame Shirley’s car has door pil­lars en­graved with some fa­mous lyrics from her songs.
