The Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos: A Cryptographer’s Companion

Only fifty Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos motor cars will be put into production at Goodwood, but this limited run isn’t even the most exclusive aspect of this mysterious and singular vehicle. In fact, that honor goes to the code that you’ll find embedded in this model’s Spirit of Ecstasy–a puzzle that only two individuals know the answer to!

Clues for interested cryptographers are spread throughout the rest of the vehicle, so if you’d like to understand the hidden message here, you’ll need to bring a Kryptos home to Burbank or La Cañada.

 

 

Unlocking the Secret of the Kryptos

In order to find the code, simply look to the hood of this unique Rolls-Royce. There, where the Spirit of Ecstasy meets the vehicle, you’ll encounter a ring of stylized markings, resembling the dots and dashes of morse code. You can find the same code screen-printed onto this Wraith model’s metal dash. Of course, the code itself will only ever be a curiosity unless you’re able to find the clues and unlock its true meaning!

Only owners will be able to spend the time needed to find each and every required clue, but we can already point to some areas that we’d check if a Kryptos Wraith ever entered our collection:

  • Goodwood has already indicated that the markings on each headrest shouldn’t be ignored or chalked up to mere style.
  • Pinstripes on the car’s exterior repeat the patterning you’ll find in the code, potentially revealing something deeper.
  • This model’s distinctive fiber-optic Starlight Headliner has a unique look, and perhaps an underlying pattern. Maybe it’s simply a red herring, but we’d have to get up close and personal to know for sure.

Consult our overview of the Rolls-Royce Wraith interior to get an even better sense of what to expect.

How Do You Submit Your Answer?

In order to make a guess at the true meaning of the Kryptos code, you’ll need to download and connect to Rolls-Royce Whispers, an exclusive app for Rolls-Royce owners. There, you’ll encounter a section that’s doubly-secure, designed specifically for those who’ve attempted to solve this riddle.

After you submit your answer, a representative from Goodwood will contact you to let you know if you’ve cracked the code.
