Just when you thought the Rolls-Royce Wraith — the marque’s sporty fastback coupe — couldn’t get any more elegant, they went ahead and put a twinkling night sky inside of it.

Rolls just unveiled the new Luminary Collection, a line of bespoke Wraiths of which only 55 will be made. Just think of it as your normal Wraith, except turned up. Like, way up.

The pièce de résistance of the Wraith Luminary is its star-studded headliner ceiling, made up of 1,340 fiber-optic lights that can recreate eight different shooting star patterns that launch at random over the front seats.

And if that wasn’t enough, the center console and Tudor Oak accents also illuminate, thanks to 176 LEDs that live inside the wood. To be “reminiscent of the trail lighting of a shooting star,” says the company in a press release.

We’re not sure what that means exactly, but it’s definitely provocative.

Equally impressive is the car’s paint job, in Sunburst Grey, which is is described as a “flat gray hue that enlivens when awoken by the sun” with “rich copper tones emitting a deep emotive warmth.”

No word yet on pricing, but a regular Wraith starts at $320,000. So either way, you’ll be shooting for the stars.
