Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII

Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur Brown braved uncharted skies and made the first transatlantic flight in the June of 1919. Contemporaries of Sir Henry Royce, Alcock and Brown flew non-stop from St. John's, Newfoundland to Clifden, Ireland in a modified First World War Vickers Vimy bomber aircraft. This bi-plane was powered by twin 20.3-litre, 354 PS, Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII engines. The Wraith Eagle VII inspires its name from this aeroplane engine.

Powering the Rolls Royce Wraith Eagle VIII is the same 6.6-litre V12 engine that puts out 632PS.

The Wraith Eagle VIII is painted in Gunmetal with a Selby Grey upper two-tone and the colours are separated by a brass line. The blacked out grille is a reference to the Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII engine cowling on the Vickers Vimy aircraft. The wheels sport a polished finish what Rolls Royce likes to call the shadow finish.

Inside, the dashboard of the Wraith Eagle VIII gets a frozen theme from the high altitude flight of the planes. The clock integrated into the dashboard glows a faint green light in the night. The red coloured hour hand sits atop compass inspired lines and the landing locations are engraved below.
