I sat for a while on the Rolls-Royce configurator attempting to configure a Cullinan Black Badge for fun. What caught my eye was the Carbon Fibre Spirit of Ecstasy that is available as an option. So I said hell with the Cullinan and go see what SOEs are on option on the other models.

I checked out the phantom and its EWB variant, Dawn, Wraith and Cullinan. Now across these models the SOE on offer comes in three versions - the standard - Silver, the Gold plated SOE and the one in Carbon Fibre. The black badge versions also have the carbon fibre SOE as an option next to the Black Chrome SOE

I wonder why they offer it now. Weight shedding is not Rolls building style so why offer it? the paint on Rolls weighs about a 100 lbs (45 kgs). That is a lot of weight. So why this and why now? Personally, I do not care. I sure people wanted this as an option. It was an option for special editions like the Adamas Collection.

But for the fun of it, I decked out a Rolls-Royce Phantom to see how the carbon fibre SOE looks. For this, I decided to use the 0.01% of designer in me to highlight the Carbon Fibre SOE. This is what I came up with.

  • I want a big rear wing an carbon forged wheels to go with that.

    having a lot of money doesn't mean you have taste.

  • As if a Rolls-Royce isn't pretentious enough, a carbon fibre SoE is an option. Boyzone singer Shane Lynch had the right idea when he turned his Silver Shadow into a drift car!
