Rolls-Royce. The absolute last word in motorized amenity. When a builder lets you choose between 44,000 colours, you know they take customization very very seriously. Here’s the deal, though. What Rolls-Royce offers in terms of personalization is fit for the Maharajas, the super elite and the jet-setters. But, what if you wanted to hoon? I’m imagining cutlery being shattered and tea being spat out at the RR HQ. Meet George.
George is a tricked-out Rolls-Royce Wraith, owned by Jon Olsson. Jon’s an alpine skier and is well known for owning some seriously cool (and modified) cars.
Back to the Roller, it’s finished in – what’s now become Jon’s trademark – a black and white camo wrap. It rides on a massive set of 24-inch alloy wheels made by Forgiato, with custom ‘George the Rolls’ lettering on the tyres. There are a couple of auxiliary lamps on the grille and four of them on the roof. Because, why not. It’s also got a luggage rack on the roof that’s held in place by magnets. Again, because, why not. What’s properly astounding is what’s been done to the engine.
The Wraith’s 6.6-litre V12 (which in its stock 624PS/820Nm tune is plenty powerful) has been tuned (by Dutch tuning geeks: Absolute Motors) to produce a whopping 810PS and 1138Nm. All that power to the rear wheels means the Rolls does some really cool burnouts!
