Rolls-Royce Lights Up Black Badge Family With ‘Neon Nights’ Paint Trilogy (PHOTOS)
British luxury automaker Rolls-Royce lights up Black Badge family, including Cullinan, Wraith and Dawn, with ‘Neon Nights’ paint trilogy.
British luxury automaker Rolls-Royce has unveiled limited ‘Neon Nights’ variants of its Dawn, Wraith and Cullinan Black Badge.
Any pre-conceived notion that Rolls-Royce’s Black Badge variants all have to be black is comprehensively laid to rest by the super-solid Neon Nights colours.
The vibrant colour palette, which were inspired by exotic plants and animals, was created following highly successful ‘Pastel’ Collection in 2019.
In a statement released, the company says :
“Neon Nights is a vibrant trilogy of Rolls-Royce Black Badges, whose inspiration come from nature.
The newly developed Bespoke paint is applied to the Black Badge variants of Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan. In the meantime, it is the darker and edgier ‘enfants terribles’ of the Rolls-Royce family.”
Taking cues from the natural world, including an Australian green tree frog, a Hawaiian tree flower and an exotic butterfly, these limited hues show Black Badge bolder in color. Meanwhile, it is appealing to patrons around the world who really do dare to be different.”

The all-new Neon Lights collection was initially designed for clients in the United States. Meanwhile, there are available for commission worldwide, making a limited run of just four of each colour.
Comprising here of Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan Black Badge, each in a different hue, inspiration comes from the natural world.
Unique beauty characterizes the Wraith Black Badge in Lime Rock Green. This is a near-luminous hue. It hanged naturally on the Australian green tree frog, which Rolls-Royce Bespoke Paint Specialist Sami Coultas had an encounter with, on a trip to Tamworth, north of Sydney.
Scivaro Grey leather makes up its interior, with Lime Rock Green accents in the form of stitching and piping.
The striking Eagle Rock Red created for this Dawn Black Badge mimics the flowers of ‘Ōhi‘a lehua. This is an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. Selby Grey leather with Koi Red stitching and piping details finished the interior.
For Cullinan, the Bespoke Collective looked to an exotic butterfly, Rhetus periander for inspiration. Known as the Periander metalmark, Central and South America house this species.
The vibrancy of its wings is faithfully captured in Cullinan’s Mirabeau Blue finish while the Arctic White leather interior detailed in Lime Rock Green provides a dramatic contrast.
In all three cars, the Technical Fibre facia has beautiful designs with a spectacular graphic. The paint effect provides an intense neon glow and depicts the distortion of artificial light with speed.
The Neon Nights cars follow a suite of Black Badges that grabbed headlines at the 2019 Pebble Beach event, which saw Ghost, Wraith and Dawn finished in Bespoke pastel colours.
