Within this ethereal realm, the captivating blue hue of the sky gradually fades into the profound darkness of space, giving birth to a mesmerizing dark-blue region where shadows come to life. It is a captivating, tranquil, and enigmatic world, accessible only to a select few who dare to embark on extraordinary adventures.

This limited-edition creation perfectly embodies the essence of the Blue Shadow concept, offering an unrivalled experience.

Exterior: Unveiling the Shades of Blue

The exterior of the Black Badge Cullinan ‘Blue Shadow’ showcases the exceptional ‘Stardust Blue‘ bespoke paint, capturing the deep blue shades found in the upper layers of Earth’s atmosphere. Drawing inspiration from the thermal tiles that protect space shuttles during atmospheric re-entry, the satin-tinted grille surround and aero bumper insert set to exude a sense of elegance and innovation.

Inspired by spacefaring materials, the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy figurine is crafted using advanced 3D printing techniques and titanium, finished with a delicate layer of blue-tinted lacquer. This process imbues the figurine with pearlescent qualities while accentuating the distinctive texture of titanium.

Engraved on the base of the Spirit of Ecstasy, the Black Badge infinity logo and the ‘Blue Shadow’ Private Collection name are filled with Charles Blue, adding a touch of exclusivity. To complete the exterior’s captivating aesthetics, the wheels of the Blue Shadow are subtly darkened using a translucent lacquer.

Interior: A Transcendent Perspective

At the Karman Line, where Earth’s atmosphere meets the boundless void of space, enchanting blue halo envelopes the visible edge of our planet. This awe-inspiring transition, from the celestial blue sky to the deep darkness of space, is impeccably captured on Blue Shadow’s bespoke painted fascia and door panels.

The fascia is adorned with a unique Bespoke clock, exclusive to the Private Collection, featuring light blue anodized details and engraved ‘Blue Shadow’ lettering.
