Perhaps you’re one of those people who solves the Times crossword puzzle in a pen, sends coded messages to friends for a laugh, thinks of final Jeopardy! as nothing too challenging. And also, you’ve got a lot of money to spend on your next car. In which case we’d suggest a Rolls-Royce Wraith Kryptos Collection. After spending in the neighborhood of 400 grand, you will be given among the finest of vehicles – and you will also receive a puzzle, because embedded throughout the car are clues – ciphers to be exact – hidden in the headrest, the exterior striping, the illuminated interior headlining, and other unnamed places. The answer to the riddle is sealed in a safe in the office of CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös (whose name sure sounds like the villain awaiting Mr. Bond at the end of the movie). The company isn’t saying what you’ll win if you figure it out. But only 50 of the Kryptos editions will be sold, meaning you and your problem-solving smarts have favorable odds to be the one to crack a very exclusive code.
