Rolls-Royce Pebble Beach 2019 Collection Wraith

They come in pretty colors.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost, Dawn, and Wraith premiere in specially coloured editions for the debut of the Pebble Beach 2019 Pastel Collection during Monterey Car Week. The company says their pale green, salmon pink, and light yellow colours take inspiration from the sea, hills, and sand near Pebble Beach.

The Ghost is in the shade Light Green Solid, and Rolls says that the colour "represents the rebirth of the flora on the peninsula following the years of drought and fire." Depending on the light, the hue can appear more blue than green. On the inside, the cabin features a mix of Serenity Green and black upholstery.

The Dawn wears the colour Coral Solid that requires seven coats of paint and nine hours of polishing to achieve. The light pink hue makes for quite an eye-catching convertible. The cabin has a mix of Arctic White and Sunset orange leather.

New Ghost coming soon:

Finally, the Wraith is the sunny colour Semaphore Yellow. The interior is a mix of Selby Gray and Lemon with Rolls' Starlight Headliner.

Rolls-Royce is currently preparing to retire the current Ghost, and a new generation is on the way for an expected debut in 2020. It reportedly uses the twin-turbo 6.75-litre V12 that other Rolls' models have. The engine uses a 48-volt electrical system that could allow for mild hybrid tech to boost fuel economy. An eight-speed automatic would send power to an all-wheel-drive system. While sporty handling isn't a top consideration for most Ghost buyers, the next-gen model purportedly has four-wheel steering, too. So far, the future of the Wraith and Dawn is uncertain.
