Rolls-Royce Unveils Their Black Badge Line At Goodwood Festival Of Speed
The Goodwood Festival of Speed hillclimb is among the most prestigious events in all of motorsports. Located near their factory headquarters in Goodwood, England, Rolls-Royce decided that they should unveil their most powerful series of models yet by showing their performance on the famed hillclimb.


Haunting The 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed


Both the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Wraith nameplates evoke images of haunting figures, and the Black Badge line only amplifies this. While the Black badge line is offered in any color a customer desires, Rolls-Royce claims that their new signature Black Badge Black is “the deepest, darkest, and most intense black ever seen on a production car surface.”


Luxury Only Matched By Performance


The Goodwood Festival of Speed is both a showcase and a race, featuring almost any model you can think of, from the Bugatti Chiron to vintage F1 cars. As the most powerful Rolls-Royce model in the history of the ultra luxury marque, the 2016 Wraith Black Badge bested entrants from Ferrari, Aston Martin, and McLaren, proving that luxury does not have to be sacrificed when in pursuit of speed. The Rolls-Royce Black Badge completed the renowned Goodwood Hillclimb in only 65.05 seconds. For comparison, the Porsche 918 Spyder recorded a time of 66.09 seconds and the McLaren P1 recorded a 65.03 lap time. The Porsche 918 and McLaren P1 are purpose-built hypercars that are worth in access of $2 million and they aren’t motorcars built to offer the ultimate luxury and comfort like the Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge.
