The new Rolls Royce Black Badge is now available as a Black Badge edition, giving the ultra-luxury sedan a sinister contrast to its lighter-hued stablemates.
The Black Badge receives the auto industry’s darkest paint by an electrostatic process, where the over 100 pounds of pigment is applied to a charged body and then baked in an autoclave.
Two layers of clear coat are then applied, after which an intensive hand-polish brings the car to its showroom-worthy luster. 21-inch wheels feature 44 layers of carbon fiber, while V12 6.6L now produces 717 horsepower. The interior is trimmed in wood veneers, Turchese leather, and Rolls-Royce’s * Starlight * headliner.
