A new collection of Rolls-Royce Black Badge models has made a very bright splash.

Star light, star bright, what on Earth are the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Neon Nights? The bespoke automaker has announced a new limited edition collection of brightly colored models, dubbed the Neon Nights models. Dawn, Wraith, and Cullinan Black Badge vehicles have gotten the treatment.

"Neon Nights is a vibrant trilogy of Rolls-Royce Black Badges, whose inspiration come from nature. The newly developed Bespoke paint is applied to the Black Badge variants of Wraith, Dawn and Cullinan - the darker and edgier 'enfants terribles' of the Rolls-Royce family," said Sami Coultas, Bespoke Designer Color & Trim, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "Taking cues from the natural world, including an Australian green tree frog, a Hawaiian tree flower and an exotic butterfly, these limited hues show Black Badge bolder in color, appealing to patrons around the world who really do dare to be different."

Though originally conceived for clients in the U.S., the automaker has announced that three further iterations of each color are available for commission worldwide.

Wraith Black Badge is finished in Lime Rock Green, a near-luminous hue naturally traditionally worn by the Australian green tree frog, an animal Coultas first encountered on a trip to Tamworth, north of Sydney, Australia. The interior features Scivaro Grey leather, with Lime Rock Green accents in the form of stitching and piping.

The Eagle Rock Red paint color created for the Dawn Black Badge that is part of the collection mimics the flowers of 'Ōhi'a lehua, an evergreen tree native to Hawaii. The Dawn's interior is finished in Selby Grey leather and has Koi Red stitching and piping details.

Rolls-Royce took inspiration from a butterfly for its Cullinan Black Badge Neon Nights iteration. Rhetus periander is known as the Periander metalmark, a species found across Central and South America, that is known for the vibrancy of its wings. That color was faithfully captured in Cullinan's Mirabeau Blue paint job, which is contrasted by an Arctic White leather interior with Lime Rock Green details.

In all three cars, the Technical Fibre fascia is embellished with a unique graphic that provides a neon glow and depicts the distortion of artificial light with speed.

The latest model to join the LEGO Technic family is a track-ready take one of the most beloved supercars of all time. The LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR is extreme, just like its real life namesake. The model is the first McLaren to get the Technic treatment.

It's an 830-piece model is designed for builders ages 10 and above. Its real life version was designed for track enthusiasts. The Senna GTR takes the athleticism of the Senna supercar a step further with a vehicle, "designed to deliver the most extreme, raw and engaging driving experience possible," according to the super luxury automaker. They call the vehicle "mind-bendingly fast", which makes it a perfect fit for a track day.

The beating heart of the McLaren Senna GTR is a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that achieves approximately 813 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. Its carbon fiber body weighs just 2619 pounds and rides on a motorsports chassis.

The total engineering package is designed to deliver a raw racing experience. It's beyond engaging. The well-engineered wing helps you ride the line between control and out of control and, quite possibly, life and death.

LEGO hasn't pushed its model to that extreme, but many of its parts hold true to the spirit of the car. It features a V8 with moving pistons, an aerodynamic body style, dihedral doors, and a one-of-a-kind blue livery. The model is 12 inches long when completed.

"The team responsible for the design of the McLaren Senna GTR worked incredibly closely with their design counterparts at the LEGO Group to capture the extreme looks, excitement and essence of such an incredible supercar for LEGO Technic builders," said Robert Melville, Design Director McLaren Automotive. "Just like the real thing, the LEGO model is packed full of incredible details from the rear spoiler to the moving pistons in the V8 engine to the dihedral doors meaning that we're as proud of the model as we are of the real car."
