Image Gallery: Rolls Royce Wraith Eagle VIII
Rolls Royce Wraith Eagle VIII was unveiled at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este from May 24-26, 2019. The Rolls Royce Wraith Eagle VII inspires its name and livery from the bi-plane that 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. Powering the planes were twin 20.3-litre, 354 PS, Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII engines. The Wraith Eagle VIII inspires its name from this aeroplane engine and pays homage 100 years later.
