Behold the $1M Rolls-Royce Wraith with Wood Paneling Designed by a Former Disney’s Designer
Published September 11, 2016
Rolls-Royce Wraith Regatta is a real yacht on the road. The 1-million-dollars worth luxury coupe was designed by Eddie Sotto, a former Senior Vice President of Concept Design at the Walt Disney Imagineering.
The reason why Sotto decided to customize Rolls-Royce Wraith is that he got really disappointed with recent customized Rolls-Royces. According to the artist, those versions are obtrusively bright, with “giant wheels and gold and bright colors”. His version is just the opposite. It’s elegant, yet undeniably luxurious.
The designer drove his inspiration from the design of wooden yachts, as well as from the classic Phantom II Boat Tail. He added mahogany planking on the roof, the rear section and the hood, and created a true masterpiece.
For 1 million dollars you’re not getting just a wonderful design, but a deluxe interior as well. The interior cabin is also designed with yachts in mind. The wooden finish on the door panels and dashboard give the impression that you’re inside of an expensive yacht. On top of that, the nautical theme is also emphasized with nautical-brass inlays and brass-trimmed vents.
Those ready to pay million bucks for this car, probably won’t mind making a couple more changes to suit their style the best. Aria Group from California is in charge of making any additional customization on the Rolls-Royce Wraith Regatta. The company is known for doing a good job on Kia GT4 Stinger and Mazda Furai already.
