The Wraith Landspeed has a starlight headliner that recreates the sky above the Bonneville Salt Flats on 16 September 1938. On this day, Eyston with his Thunderbolt set their third and final world land-speed record which stood at 575 kmph. The collection of stars has been marked using 2,117 individually placed fibre-optic ‘stars’ . The brand said that it is the largest number of stars that a headliner of a Rolls-Royce Wraith Starlight has ever featured. (Rolls-Royce)
