The Rolls-Royce Black Badge Wraith makes its official global drive debut to a select group of media, VIPs and executives from around the world on Sunday. The group will be hosted by Encore and Wynn Las Vegas, which also boasts the largest fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms in North America, and SpeedVegas, the new supercar track experience. The debut will take place at SpeedVegas, the award-winning $30 million motorsports complex, where the Black Badge Wraith will be driven on its Formula One-inspired 1.5 mile track.
Rolls-Royce describes the Black Badge as “an aspect of the brand that appeals to those people who are elusive and defiant, the risk takers and disruptors who break the rules and laugh in the face of convention. They play hard and they change the world. Technically and aesthetically Black Badge is the alter ego of Rolls-Royce: darker, more assertive, more confident and powerful and more demanding.”
Black Badge Wraith is the most powerful Rolls-Royce in the world, delivering 624 bhp (brake horsepower). But with engineering enhancements, Black Badge delivers even more excitement. Torque is increased to 870 Nm (Newton meters), handling is more dynamic and contact with the road intensified for a thrilling driving experience.
Attendees will be the first to witness the Black Badge Wraith’s performance as it drives around SpeedVegas track during this complete Las Vegas experience. The Black Badge Wraith’s performance will be put to the test as it’s driven on a track that features 12 sweeping turns, 15-degree banked turns, 60 feet of total elevation change and a half-mile straightaway. In addition, attendees will receive exclusive information regarding the car’s engineering and driving characteristics from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars executives and engineering team.
“We had the opportunity to go anywhere in the world but we chose Las Vegas as the city that best suits the Black Badge lifestyle. Wynn Las Vegas features the world’s finest in entertainment while SpeedVegas’ track is perfectly suited to show the world’s media what the Black Badge Wraith is capable of. We’re looking forward to an unforgettable launch,” says Richard Carter, global director of communications, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
