Rolls-Royce to showcase Black Badge models at Goodwood Festival of Speed


The upcoming Festival of Speed at Goodwood is one of the most highly anticipated annual motoring events in Europe where some of the biggest automotive brands look to showcase their very best.


  • What Black Badge models will be showcased at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed?

    According to Rolls-Royce, it will showcase unique bespoke creations of the Black Badge Wraith, Black Badge Dawn, Black Badge Cullinan, and Black Badge Ghost.
  • When will the Festival of Speed take place?

    This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed is scheduled from June 23 to 26.
  • Rolls-Royce, a marque familiar with such affairs, announced that it will showcase a host of Black Badge models at the upcoming event.

    The Rolls-Royce Black Badge is the automotive firm’s response to a new type of client. Black Badge cars often have a more distinct character than their counterparts and these unique personalities usually transcend the typical exterior aesthetic. Designed with more torque, control, and power, Rolls-Royce Black Badge models are built for those who reject conformity and live on their own terms. It is for the innovators, trailblazers, rule-breakers — and above all — those who dare.

    “Each year many clients, friends of the brand, and media come together for the Festival of Speed. With its location, just a stone’s throw away from The Home of Rolls-Royce on the Goodwood Estate, the Festival of Speed is a very important event for the brand. This year, our full Black Badge portfolio will be displayed at the event on the Laundry Green. I am delighted to showcase such highly Bespoke cars in vivacious colors and luxurious hues, testament to the creativity of our artisans, designers, and engineers,” said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars UK, Europe, Russia, and Central Asia Regional Director Boris Weletzky.


    To be displayed on the Festival’s Laundry Green, adjacent to Goodwood House, will be a selection of bespoke commissions of the Black Badge Wraith, Black Badge Dawn, and Black Badge Cullinan.

    The Black Badge Wraith gracing the Rolls-Royce stand is finished in two-tone paint: the top in Black while the lower portion in Tucana Purple. A Mandarin coachline showcases the marque’s surface finish capabilities. Inside, a Mandarin and black theme create a dramatic and powerful aesthetic.

    Alongside it is the Black Badge Dawn, swathed in a two-tone Jasmine with Black finish. This specimen also has its steering wheel in a similar two-tone treatment. The flanks of its bold coachwork are underscored by 21-inch Black Badge wheels.

    Meanwhile, the Black Badge Cullinan scheduled to make its Goodwood appearance will be presented in Dark Olive with a single Mandarin coachline and Mandarin brake calipers. The signature Black Badge design flourishes, including a milled carbon fiber Spirit of Ecstasy, and 22-inch Black Badge wheels embolden its exterior aesthetic.

    Also to be featured is the purest expression of a Rolls-Royce Black Badge to date — the Black Badge Ghost.

    It will boast a Galileo Blue and Black exterior finish with striking Red calipers and a single wheel center pinstripe in Galileo Blue. The blue theme is carried through to the interior, with the seat piping and Bespoke interior leather in Galileo Blue.

    A second Black Badge Ghost will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed VIP area and will come with a vibrant Lime Green coachwork and a dark carbon fiber Spirit of Ecstasy.


    Other Rolls-Royce motor cars attending the Festival of Speed include a Black Badge Dawn as a Courtesy Car and a Black Badge Cullinan as a Festival Course Safety Car.
