Bespoke Motorcars: Roll Royce & Bentley

The Bespoke Rolls Royce Drophead

It is very rare to see a Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge with what appears to be a single tone paint job, with most vehicles in this category coming in 2 tone livery.

However, if you look closely at this model you will see the exterior colors are in fact Arctic white and matte Arctic White.

It is a very subtle difference but certainly pleasing on the eye.

The car was commissioned by Abu Dhabi Motors and has been built in a very unusual but very popular specification.

The exterior is only the beginning; the Rolls Royce has a bright interior with hints of red splashed throughout to tie it all together. The inside is the same as that seen on the folding roof and the pinstripe seen down the side of the car.

The full name for the vehicle is technically the Rolls Royce Black Badge Trichromatic, which stands for “use of 3 colors” – seen with the red, blue and white combination. 

Outside of the RR’s livery, the drpop-head has the usual Black Badge Edition 6.6L twin-turbo V12 engine, which produces 593bhp and 840Nm of torque compared to the standard model’s 563bhp and 780Nm.

This allows you to go from 0-100 kph in 4.8 secs and has an electronically limited Top Speed of 250kmh

The Bentley Bespoke Continental GT Convertible

Recently, Bentley unveiled a new Continental GT Convertible.

The latest generation of the GT convertible has 626hp generated by a 6-litre twin-turbo W12 engine which has been carried over from the 3rd-generation model. With this engine, the Continental GT now produces 2631Nm of torque.

This Bentley features a computerized engine, so when motoring in city traffic you need just 50% the engine to perform, so 6 of the 12 cylinders shut down, resulting in the car operating on 6 cylinders which makes it an economical proposition. Hang on, economical is a subjective matter when it comes to owning and driving a Bentley.

Have a terrific weekend.
