"And the World Stood Still" for the Most Powerful Rolls-Royce
The Rolls-Royce Motor Cars launches a film, named "And the World Stood Still", that is accepted into the British Film Institute National Archive - the world's biggest collection of film and TV. To celebrate this, Rolls-Royce created a Wraith that is inspired by the film. The film itself introduces the Wraith, which is the most powerful and technologically advanced vehicle ever created by Rolls-Royce.
The shoot is taken in a secret place in Barcelona with special 100 SLR cameras that bring the so-called "Timeslice" sequence. The movie team shows incomparable knowledge and skills beyond measure in the cinematography art. There is even an additional behind the scenes film, specially released after countless fan requests.
Actually, this isn't the first Rolls-Royce movie. The brand takes role in film making for many decades. Some of their best works include Goldfinger (1964), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), The Great Gatsby (1976) and many others. And now, with the "And the World Stood Still", Rolls-Royce team is back to show us incredible artwork, unbelievable views of the car and overall movie experience never seen before.
As it comes to the Wraith itself, it really is the most powerful Rolls-Royce up to date. The exterior is revised and the wheelbase are wider, the engine is a twin turbo V12, that delivers 624 hp (465 kW) and goes from 0 to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds). The lines and body of the Wraith has something similar to the 1930s film noir,that gives that really unique style and expression.
The Wraith "Inspired by Film" Special Edition will debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show, and could be ordered worldwide right after the show.
