Rolls-Royce Captures the Spirit of Porto Cervo With Two Bespoke Cars

You pick: Emeralds or ostrich leather?

Rolls-Royce has debuted two bespoke cars inspired by the Porto Cervo resort locale in northern Sardinia. The special cars mark the opening of the Rolls-Royce Summer Studio in the area.

The emerald Dawn adopts a nautical theme, featuring a vibrant emerald exterior. Inside, you'll notice a sea of green leather, open-pore teak, and a Porto Cervo emblem depicted with precious emeralds and mother of pearl set into white gold.

Contrasting with the vibrant Dawn, the special Wraith features a calm gray theme. A purple feature line accents a two-tone silver exterior. Rolls-Royce executed a twilight theme inside the cabin, which features shades of blue, black, and primarily, purple. "The use of ostrich leather adds depth and texture to the exquisitely furnished cabin," Rolls-Royce said in a press release.

Under the hood, the Dawn gets a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine that pumps out 563 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. The Wraith also receives a 6.6-liter unit, but it has been tuned to deliver 624 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

The debuts coincide with Rolls-Royce opening a Summer Studio in Porto Cervo to entertain "patrons of true luxury," as the automaker puts it. The super-luxury house is open to guests from June to September.
