Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos Collection wants you to crack the code


A Rolls-Royce typically costs so much that every single car is kind of a “bespoke” creation. But for those who want bespoke-ception, Rolls-Royce’s bespoke team will be more than happy to decode what’s in your mind. The one featured here is not any dedicated client’s request but a new Collection by the marque’s bespoke team.


It’s called ‘Kryptos Collection’ and is limited to 50 units. As the name suggests, the Wraith features cryptography-inspired theme both on the exterior and interior. Why cryptography? Below is what the bespoke team’s Katrin Lehmann had to say:

The name Kryptos is derived from Ancient Greek, referring to something unseen, hidden and coded, mythical even. Ciphers can be traced through millennia, capturing the imagination of some of the world’s most brilliant minds. As a designer, I’ve always been fascinated by the notion that you can communicate messages that are understood by only an elite few, using symbols, pictograms, and ciphers. Finding the key becomes integral to appreciating the full meaning of an item that can otherwise be viewed simply as a work of art.

It all starts with the Spirit of Ecstasy. The base of the enigmatic figurine gets cipher engraving. The Wraith’s exterior is finished in Delphic Grey paint, with blue and green mica flakes that shine in the sunlight. The hand-painted double coachline’s upper line is in Kryptos Green while the lower is in Dark Grey.

The interiors look equally cryptographic with a similar Green-Grey theme. There are illuminated treadplates, Kryptos Green leather accents, cipher embroidered headrests (replacing the traditional ‘double-R’ emblem), and of course, the stunning Starlight headliner with data stream-inspired graphics.

The brilliant and creative minds of our Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective have excelled once again, creating an extraordinarily contemporary and compelling iteration of Wraith. The Wraith Kryptos Collection, at first glance, is a statement of dynamism. On closer examination, a series of messages are hidden behind a unique Rolls-Royce cipher. I look forward to seeing whether any of our clients will crack the code! – Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
