The new limited edition Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos proves that the desire for uniqueness can lead to unreal things.
The Rolls-Royce brand could be described as synonymous with traditional luxury. However, its designers are constantly proving that they are not afraid of various innovations and they definitely do not lack a rich imagination. After all, how else can you explain the creation of the new limited edition Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos?
A unique feature of the limited series of 50 cars is several encrypted messages that hide a mysterious message. At present, only two people know its content. Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce, and novelty designer Katrin Lehmann.
„The name Kryptos is derived from ancient Greece, where it referred to something mysterious, hidden and coded, even mythical. Ciphers can be traced across millennia, capturing the imagination of some of the world‘s most amazing minds,“Her designer added to the novelty.
„As a designer, I have always been fascinated by the idea that you can communicate with messages that only a select elite handful can understand, using symbols, pictograms and ciphers. Finding the key becomes an essential part of appreciating the full meaning of a thing that can otherwise only be perceived as a work of art.“
Customers who want to understand the cipher have a journey of discovery and intrigue. They should begin their search with the Spirit of Ecstasy statue, which is home to the first pictogram important to understanding the message.
Other important components of the cipher should then be located in the interior, specifically in its upholstery and especially in the headrests. Deciphering the report should not really be funny. Even CEO Müller-Ötvös wonders if any of the future owners will be proud of breaking the code.
In addition to the mysterious message, however, the special Wraith Kryptos will also offer unique color combinations. Its exterior is decorated with paint in the shade of Delphic Gray, the basis of which is an anthracite color with green and blue flakes, which, however, only fully appear in direct sunlight. There is also a hand-painted line and polished wheels in Orbit Gray settled in the underbody.
