Rolls-Royce Goes Bright with Neon Nights Editions

Rolls-Royce embraces the 80s with neon shades

  • Just 12 of the Neon Nights models available

  • Hues never before seen on a Roller


You might remember when Rolls-Royce was all about restrained luxury. Sure the cars were large, and showed off the chrome flying lady on the radiator grille, but, with a few rare exceptions they were never exactly what you’d call “flashy”. Well, that’s completely out the window now, if it hadn’t been already, with three Neon Nights Rollers that are painted in shades we think you’ll see from space.

The trio, a Dawn, Wraith, and Cullinan (all Black Badge models) were originally created for US clients, but the automaker decided that it wanted to make some more. So four of each colour will be offered to customers.

Surprisingly, the colours are all inspired by nature, though it’s not exactly common to see anything this bright in the wild. The Wraith is finished in Lime Rock Green, a hue worn by the Australian green tree frog. Rolls Paint Specialist Sami Coultas found one on a trip to the country and went with it. The grey leather interior gets matching green stitching and piping.

The Eagle Rock Red Dawn mimics the flowers of ‘Ōhi‘a lehua, Rolls-Royce says, an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. Lastly, the Cullinan takes its Mirabeau Blue from the Periander Metalmark butterfly found across Central and South America.

Each car also has a fascia that gets a special graphic matching the paint colour that “provides an intense neon glow and depicts the distortion of artificial light with speed.”

The neon colours follow the pastel Black Badges shown at Pebble Beach last year, so expect more special runs of brighter Rollers to follow.
