Taking Rolls-Royce’s brand promise of ‘Inspiring Greatness’ from a passive experience to an immersive one, followers were invited to participate in a gamified, digital adaptation of the puzzle that’s built, sewn, and painted onto each car.
In honour of the car’s Delphic origins, a cryptographic quiz and site page with hidden devices were developed. The mobile quiz was promoted via social channels and challenged followers to crack the “Wraith Kryptos Enigma”. From Morse Code to Caesar ciphers, the experience served as a true test of wit.
The first two weeks of the campaign saw engagement rise by 314% on Instagram and 50% on Facebook in comparison to the previous period. As a result, Wraith Kryptos is one of the fastest-selling collection cars in Rolls-Royce’s history, with the limited run of 50 selling out before becoming available to the public.
