Throughout history, elite individuals have utilized ciphers to communicate. The allure of a near-unbreakable code that only the creator and a select few can understand is undeniable, and while the mysteries behind a handful of the worlds emblematic codes have enamored professionals for centuries, Rolls-Royce has decided to add yet another to the list, implementing its own for the recently-revealed Wraith Kryptos Collection.
The Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos Collection is an homage to the genre of encrypted communication, dressing one of the company’s most lauded and exclusive luxury vehicles in a complex, ciphered message. Its designer, Katrin Lehmann, and Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos are said to be the only two individuals in the world who know what the code means, giving the Wraith an uncanny ability to capture the more mystical aspects of our imagination. To add to the car’s mysterious persona, the brand has included a series of clues to help buyers decipher the code’s meaning, beginning with the vehicle’s green-enameled Spirit of Ecstasy emblem, similarly-adorned headrests, and text-covered fabric. But if you’re not one for codes, the limited-to-50 Wraith Kryptos is still aesthetically noteworthy, taking on a pleasing Anthracite base color, a hand-painted double coach, and specialized Kryptos Green detailing.
