A number of months in the past, Rolls-Royce introduced a specific version variation of the Wraith, called the Kryptos Edition. The auto attributes a collection of coded messages, etched into its bodywork and inside, which the company hoped its shoppers could clear up – but none of the car’s fifty buyers have nonetheless properly cracked the riddle.
To aid its customers alongside, Rolls-Royce has discovered the reply to the code scribed onto the Wraith’s exclusive Spirit of Ecstasy emblem. It conceals the term “Kryptos” in coded cipher – and Rolls-Royce hopes that, by revealing these seven letters, it will aid buyers unravel the rest of the Wraith’s secrets and techniques.
Along with this uniquely engraved bonnet mascot, the Wraith Kryptos Edition’s exterior attributes a tweaked front bumper and a exclusive paint scheme with an enigmatic metallic finish and a coded coachline.
The inside is significantly the exact same tale. The car’s treadplates aspect a exclusive coded design, as does the upholstery, fascia finish and doorway pockets. The headlining is also embellished in a specific two-tone data-stream-type sample, although the embroidery on both equally the headrests and transmission tunnel supposedly bear facets of the coded message.
From what we can glean from the British brand’s meandering push materials, the purchaser who solves the cryptographic conundrum will be granted some type of reward. Now, only two folks in the globe know the reply to the car’s code – Rolls Royce Bespoke designer Katrin Lehmann and company’s CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
Evidently, the reply has been put in a sealed envelope and locked in the CEO’s place of work at the brand’s headquarters in Goodwood, West Sussex. Potential buyers can post their tries to crack the code to Rolls-Royce through a devoted smartphone app.
